Atlanta Wine Store Hosts Spanish Red Wine Sale and In-Store Appearance of a Famous Winemaker

Posted: July 18, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Atlanta wine store, Capital City Package, hosts Spanish red wine sale and an in-store appearance of a famous winemaker.
(ATLANTA, GA) On February 7th, Atlanta wine store Capital City Package held a sale for a Spanish red wine, Spada Tinta de Toro 2009, for only $8.99. In addition, customers had the opportunity to come to the store that Thursday and meet the famous winemaker of Willamette Valley Vineyards during the afternoon from 2-4 pm.

 

“Tinta de Toro is a local clone of the Tempranillo grape from the Toro region of Spain," says Certified Wine Specialist of Capital City Package Larry Kantrowitz. "Tempranillo is a derivative of the Spanish word temprano, meaning ‘early’, indicating a faster ripening than other Spanish varietals by several weeks. Tempranillo thrives off of the cool nights, producing elegance and acidity, and then thickens and ripens under the hot sun of Toro, gaining color and richness, a feat only the climate in Spain can truly achieve."

 

Tinta de Toro has bold, present tannins that hit the palate first, followed by waves of juicy ripe cherries, roses and blackberries. The fruit of this wine dominates the glass with an intensity and concentration of dark fruits. Ripe and flavorful, Tinta de Toro would be excellent with cheeses, a variety of meats and any type of grilled fish, like salmon or scallops, with a rich sauce.  

 

"Tinta de Toro is considered the noble grape of Spain. You won’t find this wine valued at such a low price anywhere else!” 

 

In addition to this sale, Capital City Package had founder and winemaker of Willamette Valley Vineyards make an appearance in the store from 2-4 pm to sign bottles and talk about his wines. 

 

“I first met Jim while working at a wine bar in Florida and have kept a good relationship with him ever since,” says Kantrowitz. “A genuine Oregonian interested in fishing, hiking and Pinot Noir most of all, Jim is down to earth and a great person to chat up wine or the outdoors. Our customers had the chance to pop in our store and pick up some of his great wines at 15% off while talking to him about his experiences.”

Atlanta Liquor Store Capital City Package Now Utilizes Instagram for Social Media Marketing

Posted: March 14, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Capital City Package, an Atlanta liquor store, recently created an Instagram account to expand their social media marketing by engaging directly with consumers and allowing customers to window shop and quickly see what’s in stock.
(ATLANTA, GA) Instagram, a free app available for both Android phones and iPhones, has taken the social media world by storm. While the app is intended for quick, immediate sharing, businesses have jumped on the bandwagon to visually engage consumers, allowing them to “window shop” and see, at a glance, new and available products. Atlanta liquor store Capital City Package recently added the app to its social media marketing platform, in addition to Facebook and Twitter.

The image-based social media combines the best of both Facebook and Twitter by visually engaging customers, or “followers”, with pictures that utilize a variety of fun, retro-style filters. Users can add brief descriptions and hash tags, as well as commenting and sharing. In addition, Instagram allows immediate sharing with multiple social media channels –photos can be simultaneously shared with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.

As more and more consumers turn to social media not just for sharing but for news and promotions, businesses must supplement their websites with robust and responsive social media profiles. “Most people pay more attention to their Facebook and Instagram feeds nowadays than they do to websites,” says Capital City marketing and sales manager Larry Kantrowitz. “We decided social media was our best form of marketing.”

According to the 2012 Social Media Marketing Industry Report, 43 percent of people aged 20 to 29 spend more than ten hours each week on social media sites and 85 percent of businesses that have a dedicated social media platform as part of their marketing strategy reported an increase in their market exposure. The expansion is paying off for Capital City Package: “We just had our first ever annual white wine sale on January 5 and we used our social media outlets to market that event,” says Mr. Kantrowitz. “We had a great turnout!”

Capital City Package was established in 1968. There is a certified wine specialist on staff to help customers select the best wine from a newly renovated and expanded collection. Capital City Package carries craft beers and a superior selection of liquor, to help customers stock a home bar or plan parties and special events. Located at 784 Collier Road, NW in Atlanta, Georgia, Capital City Package is open Monday through Saturday.
