“Rebecca was a guest lecturer for my VESTA “Marketing for Small Wineries” class that I teach online. She provided the class with an insightful lecture on winery branding and wine label design. Many of our students are in the process of starting a winery, so the material presented was right on target for their needs. Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge with us!”
– Patty Held, VESTA (Viticulture Enology Science Technology Alliance) Instructor

“Between business school and working in sales, I’m no stranger to marketing and sales strategies. Rebecca’s ‘A Wine Marketing Blueprint to Grow Your Winery’ was one of the best, most concise presentations I’ve ever seen on the subject.” – Lucas F., student in Wine 101 Sales & marketing class at Santa Rosa Junior College.

“Her description of what a successful winery webpage would look like including the need for the website to be mobile-friendly were invaluable advice that I would not have thought about before this presentation.” Richard F., student in Wine 101 Sales & marketing class at Santa Rosa Junior College.

“I never considered how important it is for a winery website to be mobile friendly or the importance of email marketing, until Rebecca walked us through a typical Wine customer journey.” Carol L., student in Wine 101 Sales & marketing class at Santa Rosa Junior College.

“Limburg is a wine region in Belgium which is expanding very fast and is supported strongly by the provincial government. With this expansion there is a need for our wine growers to give ample attention for branding and creating an unique wine identity. Since it is our ambition to unlock available international knowledge for our growers we were organizing a wine congress and therefore we were looking for an expert in wine branding. Through an online search we got in contact with Bauerhaus Design Inc. which exactly dealt with the topic we wanted to bring to our growers. After pleasant contacts with founder Rebecca Ritz, we agreed to book her as a keynote speaker for our congress. Her presentation ‘How 6 brands target 6 different wine consumers’ raised our growers awareness to the importance of tune the production and consumers profile to guarantee future success. Rebecca’s presentation was accessible and furnished with a nice visual presentation. The response we got afterwards clearly stated that this was a useful contribution to our wine congress and left our growers with new ideas to address their branding activity.” – Ir. Sven Clemens, Board Secretary Practice-oriented Agricultural Research, Province of Limburg
