It’s that corporate gift time of year! But, this year may prove even more stressful than last year. Supply chain issues mean that a wine shortage is looming and with Halloween barely behind us, experts are saying it may be too late for some gifts to arrive.
You haven’t ordered gifts for your clients or your team yet? No need to panic! Oceano Wines is here to help save you from giving everyone on your team a lump of coal with our corporate gifts program.
By sending them a gift of Oceano wines, you can recognize their contribution during these unprecedented times. Picture yourself calm, cool and collected in the knowledge that you got on the ball early and your gifts will arrive in time for everyone to raise a toast during the holiday season. You just might be a holiday hero.
Your sanity is not the only reason to give the gift of Oceano Wine. Just like a case of wine has 12 bottles - here are 12 reasons to take advantage of this new corporate gift program for your staff, your clients, and other key people that you want to recognize this year.
1. Michelin quality at home
Before COVID 19, you could find Oceano Wines award winning Chardonnay and Pinot Noir at Michelin-starred and high-end restaurants and prestigious wine stores. Now, with wine e-commerce sales surging, we know that people are enjoying wine at home.
Your team will enjoy it even more when they can skip the wine store, and not fret about a wine shortage, because it's delivered right to them.
2. Send the Holiday Cheer…Remotely
Another way to stay well is to stay home! Can't do a holiday party this year? Did your team just go virtual and you're looking for an end of year event? Send them wine and have a wine tasting with the group. We will provide you with the wine and the materials you need for a first class tasting.
3. The craftsmanship of an extraordinary winemaker
Our winemaker Marbue Marke has an incredible story and philosophy about each bottle of wine we create. Each bottle demonstrates the exceptional craftsmanship and dedication of Marbue and our team. The result is a wine that is incredibly delicious and never disappoints.
4. Oceano has a commitment to sustainability
Oceano's commitment to sustainability is illustrated throughout their process. Oceano is making its wines as carbon neutral as possible. Their grape sourc SIP Certified (“sustainable in practice”). Irrigation is via a natural aquifer. No herbicides or pesticides are used. And they earned the BeVeg certification after a rigorous audit of those efforts.
5. Wine Wellness
In a time when we have been consumed by health and wellness, wine is the only alcoholic beverage that's a sure thing. Recent studies suggest that wine is the only alcoholic beverage to offer a health benefit - reducing heart disease.
The research indicates that anti-oxidants in the grapes provide the benefit over other types of alcohol.
Oceano wines in particular are certified vegan by BeVeg, the first—and only—ISO-recognized vegan certification organization so they fit into a health conscious lifestyle.
6. Made in the USA
We mentioned the wine shortage the nation is facing this holiday season. Stephen Colbert (and you) don’t have to worry about being short on Oceano Wines. Although our wines are made in limited production in California, we can ship to most anywhere in the United States.
7. You can't please everyone - or can you?
Chardonnay is still the most popular white wine in the U.S. and Pinot Noir is the second most popular and rising in popularity throughout the States. Oceano offers a unique twist on both wines for everyone on your list. The award winning Chardonnay is "not your typical California Chard" and the Pinot Noir was named one of the best Pinot Noirs of 2021.
8. Every bottle is a work of art.
Not only inside the bottle but outside as well.
9. Let's be honest - another gift box?
Sending the gift of Oceano is not your average gift box. It is a premium small batch product with a story of sustainability, inclusivity and compassion. And, if you set up a wine tasting, pairing or virtual toast - it's not just a gift, it's an activity you and your team can do together.
10. Luxury wine not premium prices.
By being a part of our corporate gifting program, you can buy in bulk and experience savings that you won’t see on a fine dining restaurant menu for a wine of this caliber.
11. Find your perfect pairing.
Wine can pair with food, vegan food and it can even pair with Broadway musicals!
12. Spend supplier diversity dollars
Oceano Wines is a WBENC certified Women Owned business. You can find us in the women owned gift guide and spend your dollars with a women owned firm that also spends 70% with other certified firms.
With all that in mind, keep the partridge in the pear tree and, instead, send Oceano Wine!
