Starting a small wine brand is the easy part. Selling the wine and being financially viable is another matter. California is awash in wine brands -- and California is just a part of the overall wine picture. Getting noticed is difficult, to say the least.
Wineries In India Even winemakers who have a full-time job at a larger winery can find it daunting to turn their own small brands into a success. That's one reason Sabrine Rodems -- winemaker at Wrath Wines in Monterey County and proprietor of her own brand, Scratch -- organized a group called Wines of Danger. The idea was to lend some marketing push to the group of tiny wineries by way of an annual trade and media tasting in San Francisco (this year's was the second such tasting).
The Wine Society Of India Rodems came up with the idea for the group along with some winemaker friends from UC Davis. Many of them had regular winemaking jobs and didn't have the time or money to market their own brands, Rodems says. The word spread, and Wines of Danger was formed.

Cameras show the grapes that “virtual winemakers” will be able to control. A few wineries are experimenting with using social media to crowdsource suggestions on how to make their wines.
Winery In India Two wineries — Columbia Crest in Washington and La Crema in California — recently launched crowdsourced wine projects in which online voters get to decide everything from the types of grapes used to produce the wine to the design of the label on the bottle. Being a home winemaker just got a lot less messy.
Vineyards In India In the La Crema project, which launched last month, voters already have decided to make pinot noir, which beat out chardonnay by a mere 78 votes, and have further picked the Russian River appellation as a source of the grapes. Within three weeks of launch, the effort had attracted nearly 15,000 registered visitors and about 135,000 page views.
