In honor of Women’s International Day and Women’s History month, we are excited to announce Bauerhaus Design is now a member of Women of the Vine & Spirits, an organization dedicated to the support and advancement of women in the alcohol beverage industry.
Women make 70-80% of all household purchasing decisions, yet only 11.5% of creative directors in the U.S. are female. Bauerhaus Design, a woman owned full service agency focusing on wine, spirits and foods, wants to help change that.
Bauerhaus creates unforgettable brands across all media – branding, packaging, wine marketing plus website design and development – and focuses on industries that target women. In fact, many of our contacts at each company we work with are women.
Who is Women of the Vine & Spirits?
Women of the Vine & Spirits is the world’s leading membership organization dedicated to the support and advancement of women in the alcohol beverage industry, fostering gender diversity and talent development across the industry at large. Guided by an advisory board of top executives in the alcohol beverage industry, Women of the Vine & Spirits offers extensive education, advocacy, training, mentorship, networking and steadfast support for women at every position in the field, particularly through the annual Women of the Vine & Spirits Global Symposium, March 13-15, 2017 in Napa, California.

“Women are an increasingly important force in driving trends and alcohol sales,” said Founder & President, Women of the Vine & Spirits, Deborah Brenner. Adding, “Therefore, it makes perfect sense that the industry has so much to gain from more diversity.

Women of the Vine & Spirits is committed to the advancement of women and ensuring the next generation is being mentored to take leadership roles. We have started a movement – a revolution – and together, we can change the face of the alcohol beverage industry.”
How does Bauerhaus help the wine & spirits industry?
We believe education equals growth of our clients and an industry. This is why owner Rebecca Ritz speaks around the country on wine marketing, branding and content marketing.
Plus, we share our wine marketing knowledge with a free email series, Sell More Wine and have written articles on women in the wine industry like 7 tips to reach Generation X “Wine Mom’s” and explored how to Market Wine to Moms on Social Media.
