Wineries See Challenges and Opportunities in Expanding Market for Beer, Cider, and Distilled Spirits

Alex Villicana

A recent article in the business section of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat has depicted the California wine industry wringing its hands over the defection of millennial drinkers into the alluring fields of craft beer, hard cider and fancy cocktails.

While statistics and studies might corroborate this trend, many in the wine business view the millennial movement as an opportunity to expand their own enterprises, rather than a foregone conclusion of doom and gloom for wine.

Take Alex Villicana, owner of the Villicana Winery in Paso Robles, CA for example. Incidentally, Villicana is also the proprietor of Re:Find Distillery, a handcrafted spirits company that, literally, has its roots in wine.

In 1991, Alex and his wife Monica began on a journey to what became their successful Villicana Winery, a feat they managed through sheer willpower and a fierce passion for the industry.

"I didn’t get the memo that said you needed to have a fortune to get started in the wine business," laughs Villicana. "For years it was just us – or a volunteer running things, like a sister or brother or our parents."

Their hard work paid off, however, and several years ago the Villicanas found themselves in a position to look for ways to expand the business. Their search happened to coincide with the initial wave of renewed interest in artisan, distilled spirits, especially among younger adults.

The brainchild for their business growth centered on saignée, the free-run juice from red wine grapes that is often discarded before fermentation or used to make rosé. It occurred to the sustainability-minded Villicanas that the juice had a higher calling – and that it could actually be utilized to make distilled spirits.

"We realized that 30 percent of the raw material for our wine was going to waste," Villicana says. "I thought, man, that’s fantastic juice!"

The result? In 2011, the two became owners of the first, licensed distillery in Paso Robles. And, their handcrafted Re:Find vodka and gin are selling like hotcakes.

"It was definitely a stretch for us," Villicana admits. "We were going out on a limb. As it turns out, we sold (our vodka and gin) as fast as we could put it in a bottle."

Session 3 speakers

Alex Villicana will be sharing the details of his inspirational story at the upcoming 2014 North Coast Wine Industry Expo, where he is a featured speaker on a panel titled "Pet Projects in the Cellar: Wineries Explore Beer, Cider and Distilled Spirits as Additional Revenue Sources."

Villicana will be joined by Jim Crooks, Master Blender at Firestone BarrelWorks, who will explain how his brewing team’s experiments grew into a valuable extension of the Firestone Walker brand and Paul Scotto, co-founder of Pacific Coast Ciders, who works in tandem with his brother to develop a dedicated line of handcrafted, hard ciders.

Alyssa Rapp, founder and CEO of Bottlenotes, Inc., one of the leading, interactive media companies in the U.S. for the wine and craft beer industries, will moderate the panel. Bottlenotes is dedicated to educating and entertaining consumers via email newsletters, large-scale interactive events, social media platforms and video content. Rapp was named in Inc. Magazine’s "30 Under 30" coolest entrepreneurs in America and one of the wine industry’s 100 most influential people by Intowine.com in both 2012 and 2013.

Rapp says she has immediate plans to incorporate more of what she calls "the cocktail culture" into her business model, especially as it relates to female consumers.

"We know our audience doesn’t just drink wine," Rapp says. "Wine consumers are 70 percent female, to 30 percent male. But from our own internal Daily Sip records, we see that nearly 70 percent of women who drink are also intrigued by and frequently enjoy spirits and cocktails."

Rapp is impressed that the 2014 North Coast Wine Industry Expo is dedicating one of its premiere conference sessions to a comprehensive, best-practices discussion that can be shared across all beverage categories.

"The fact that (the Wine Industry Network) was clever and wise enough to put together this session says to me they have a finger on that pulse," Rapp notes.

North Coast Wine Industry Expo Expands to Meet Exhibitor Demand Industry Trade Show Now Second Largest in North America
22 April, 2013


April 23rd, 2013, Healdsburg, CA - The Wine Industry Network (WIN) today announced that they will expand the 2013 North Coast Wine Industry Expo in its second year to accommodate an additional 120 booths making it the second largest wine industry trade show in North America. The Expo will, once again, be held at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa on Thursday, December 5, 2013.

This expansion is in direct response to last year’s sold out show and its resulting waiting list that has continued to grow since last December. The new floor plan will now include the Hall of Flowers as well as Grace Pavilion. In addition, the educational sessions will relocate to a new larger facility adjacent to the Hall of Flowers.

“In our first year, booths sold out almost immediately and we knew we needed to find a way to accommodate the growing interest,” said George Christie, Wine Industry Network President. “With over 300 suppliers exhibiting this December, the Expo is becoming a wine industry trade event that every North Coast Winery and Vineyard should plan on attending” adds Christie. “Whether you’re in the vineyard, cellar, tasting room or business office…there’s going to be something here for you”.

The inaugural event in 2012 attracted more than 2,000 attendees and attendance is expected to increase significantly in 2013. “It takes time to establish an event like this, but given last year’s success, we’re expecting a packed house in December,” added Christie. “Traditionally, that’s a time when vineyard and winery principals are busy planning for the upcoming year;this show is going make that planning process easier than ever.”

Registration is now open for the 2013 Show and booths are expected to sell out quickly For more information, visit www.wineindustryexpo.com.

Booth Spaces are selling out fast - Don't miss out!
13 August, 2012


The Wine Industry Network (WIN) announced the launch of a new trade event, the North Coast Wine Industry Expo, scheduled for December 5, 2012 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, CA.

“Over the last two years we’ve been approached countless times by vineyard and winery owners and local associations, about the need for a regional trade show,” says George Christie, President of WIN. “We believe that this area is absolutely ready to support an event of this caliber… the North Coast deserves a show of its own. Based on the overwhelming interest we’ve already received, we’re expecting the event to sell out…an amazing accomplishment for the first year.”

The North Coast Expo will include a one-day trade show featuring 200 of the industry’s best suppliers along with panel discussions focusing on Sales, Marketing, Production and Vineyard operations. The theme for the show is “2013…Plan for Success”. Topics will focus on latest trends in the industry and exhibitors will be showcasing new products and services that will become available in the upcoming year.

December is typically the slowest time of the year for winery and vineyard operations. The grapes have been harvested, most wines have gone through fermentation, and visitors to the area slow down. It’s a time when decision makers plan for the upcoming year. The show’s number one objective is to help make the planning process that much easier.

“Timing for the event is perfect for winery and vineyard operation looking for a leg up in 2013,” says Christie. “Our goal is to give industry buyers the chance to see what’s new to the market and in some cases, take advantage of special pricing from suppliers looking to finish off the year strong with sales in December. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”

Booth applications are now being accepted and can be accessed at www.wineindustryexpo.com or by calling 707-433-2557 ext 100. Conference topics and speakers will be announced on August 15th.
