Founder and CREATIVE DIRECTOR, Rebecca Ritz
With over 20+ years of experience, Rebecca helps businesses enhance their impact by creating meaningful design and branding strategies. In 2008, she fused together her passion for design and wine – focusing her efforts on brands specifically in the wine industry.
By weaving a brand’s unique story and vision into their print, packaging, website design and development, Rebecca furnishes companies with the tools needed to gain a competitive edge and increase their influence – including building out the Bauerhaus Brand Map. This process, rooted in collaboration, is used to help brands identify their goals and the subsequent steps needed to reach each milestone.
Rebecca is passionate about sharing her expertise on branding and design – and how each of these elements can effectively increase perceived value. In addition to participating in workshops and guest speaking events, she regularly publishes marketing and branding content on the Wine Industry Network as well as her own blog. Her Sell More Wine free 7 week email course has helped hundreds of wineries discover how branding and digital marketing play an integral role in increasing their bottom line.
Bauerhaus Design is a member of the Wine Industry Network, Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association, Illinois Grape Growers and Vintners Alliance, and the Women of the Vine & Spirits (WOVS), an organization dedicated to the support and advancement of women in the alcohol beverage industry. Rebecca also co-leads the WOVS “Woman-Owned Entrepreneur” Group.
While not working you can find Rebecca hitting the trails with her husband, daughter, and dogs, or on the search for new plant based recipes to pair with wine for dinner. She is a Girl Scout leader and leads her troop on many adventures with a personal goal of getting more kids active outside.
