People Are Saying

Jean – I want to thank you for all your help this year increasing our sales and interest in our family’s Maresh Red Hills Vineyard, Maresh Red Barn Tasting Room, Maresh Vineyard Retreat and Powell Hill Winery.

Your taking on the responsibility of creating our website, your design of the wine club brochure, posters featuring high scores of the wines of Arterberry Maresh and Powell Hill Winery from Wine Advocate, Tanzier, and Burghound have certainly increased sales of our wines.

Not long after founding Avalon Wines, Jean seized the dominant position in online commerce of Oregon wines and held that dominance over many years. She has an unparalleled command of the technology and a terrific sense of the creative community which supply her with products. She won near unanimous support and admiration among Oregon’s wine producers for her sensitive, fair and successful business practices. I am confident these attributes will insure the success of her new project.

Sell More Wine

Jean YatesLet me introduce myself. My name is Jean Yates and I founded Oregon Wine Marketing to help you sell more wine. To sell your wines through Tasting Room, Wine Club and online. Making direct sales and best profit.

So why hire me? For 26 years I sold Oregon wine from my shop Avalon Wine, helping talented winemakers gain visibility in Oregon and across the country. We sold millions of dollars of startups’ wine – direct to consumers the same way you do – via visitors to our tasting bar, members of our wine club, events, and online.

Here’s where I’m supposed to put all the fancy words about digital media and social networking and memes. All good things. But bottom line,  what’s most important is to know your customer and meet their needs, whatever it takes.

I want you to sell more wine at higher profit and I can help make it happen. Try me.
