Promotional Tools

We know how good your winery and wines are, but do your customers?

As the retail market continues to consolidate, direct-to-consumer sales are a significant growth opportunity for many wineries. Over a million readers trust The Real Review for wine guidance and recommendation.

In a highly competitive market, it is vital to influence a customer’s purchase decision as effectively as possible.

Video tasting notes

Online video has exploded in popularity over the past few years. Video is one of the best performing formats on social media and on search. It helps you close sales and deepen your connection with your customers. With the rise and rise of YouTube, Snapchat, TikTok, IGTV, Stories and Reels, video tasting notes are perfect to share on your social media and website.

If your wine has achieved an accolade by The Real Review in one of our tastings, it is eligible for a video tasting note. Videos run for 3-6 minutes and will be added to your wine and winery’s listing on The Real Review, our Watch section as well as our YouTube channel.

We will also add a Buy Direct button to your wine's listing. Click below to learn more. Take a look at some examples of video tasting notes we've produced.

Award stickers

A major Australian wine retailer increased their sales by 10% with our bottle award stickers.

The vast majority of wine is purchased within a few hours of consumption, so it is crucial to stand out on a bottle shelf when a customer is making their choice.

Bottle stickers are mini billboards, immediately communicating a level of quality, and giving your customer confidence in their purchase.

Top Wineries certificates

In a marketplace obsessed with price, it can be difficult for a winery to be recognised, and continue to be recognised, for quality and consistency. Brand equity is hard to measure, but invaluable and develops over time. With the Top Wineries certificate and Top Wineries list, we want to bring customers' focus back to where it should be.

The Real Review Top Wineries certificate is an annual award that helps build and reinforce your reputation with your customers and your peers. Beautifully debossed physical certificates are available to awarded wineries, perfect for framing, as well as double-sided window stickers. Wineries are entitled to one free certificate and sticker per year awarded.
