Hold a wine tasting in your client’s home; this is not your grandma’s home party! Become an Agua Dulce Wine Adventure Consultant and provide your clients with one of today’s most unique and interesting entertainment options while you build your successful sales career. Wine sales continue to grow as an aging population spends their dollars on more sophisticated drinks and you can give your clients a great opportunity to purchase great wines while you build a successful business.
As an Agua Dulce Wine Adventure Consultant, you bring the vineyard into your client’s living room by setting up the wines and glasses and conducting an in-home wine tasting. Wine tastings are a great way to socialize with friends, but are often difficult to organize as they make for a very expensive evening, even if guests bring wine. A successful wine tasting requires several glasses plastic or glass, or at the very least appointing someone to spend the evening doing a lot of rinsing. It is also difficult to decide on a wine region or type and most people are intimidated by the process.
This is where you come in as an Agua Dulce Wine Adventure Consultant. You take the confusion and stress away from your hosts. You will earn monthly commissions on retail sales (25% of retail sales) at home tastings, and from sales generated via your website. You will also build your business by attracting other wine fans to become their own consultants. Let’s get started with the basics.
Just who are Agua Dulce Vineyards? Don and Cathy MacAdam started up Agua Dulce Vineyards and Winery in 1999 and have been producing award winning wines ever since; fifty-seven medals and counting since 2001! They introduced the Wine Adventure Consultant concept as a way to introduce wines to customers unable to make the trek out to California.
Getting started is easy. For a one-time registration fee of $295 you receive:
A wine starter kit which contains six bottles of the most popular wines, subject to availability, so you can get familiar with them
Marketing supplies: corkscrew, ‘Wine 101’ book, tote bag, and apron
Your own personal website to reach your customers after the tastings and generate repeat business from the comfort of your home
This also covers your first $30 annual fee. You will pay this fee each year to keep up your consultant status
Note this fee does not include applicable taxes and shipping costs. You can also purchase additional wine starter kits containing six bottles for $195 (over $380 value)
Not sure about your Chardonnays from your Pinot Gris? Perplexed by the differences between Merlots and Pinot Noirs? Not to worry as you will be trained in all aspects of wine tasting. You can become an Agua Dulce Wine Adventure Consultant no matter how much or how little you know about wine.
Wine Tasting 101 is a live online class lasting about forty-five minutes with time afterwards for discussion. You will sample three wines, a white and two red, learn all the steps of tasting wine, food pairings and become comfortable with wine itself; all in the comfort of your own home. This class costs $75 and includes class fee, three bottles of wine shipped to you before class (standard shipping costs are included) and you will be presented with a ‘Certificate of Completion’ by Agua Dulce Vineyards and Winery. Exclusive Wine Adventure Consultants ‘webinars’ provide everything you need to know, and there is always ongoing support at any time when you need additional help or information.
