Punchdown Cellars’ goal is to provide the same excellent production services, but with an increased emphasis on spreading the word about the incredible wines being made here by great, often under-the-radar, winemakers.

Murano Group has announced that its subsidiary, Santa Rosa-based Copain Custom Crush, has changed its name to Punchdown Cellars. The name change coincides with a revitalized program to promote the company’s winery clients through enhanced social media initiatives and a dynamic new website. The online effort is designed to provide the public with a rare behind-the-scenes look at the production process at Sonoma County’s premier facility for the production of boutique high-end wines.

“Punchdown Cellars is the epicenter of premier artisanal winemaking in Sonoma County, and numerous interesting and compelling stories and images emerge every harvest season and throughout the year,” said Robert Morris, general manager of Punchdown Cellars. “We’re excited to share our clients’ stories and supplement their own marketing efforts by reaching out to the public through our website and social networks.”

Murano Group CEO Jay Thomson explained that the name change is also part of a larger rebranding effort designed to eliminate confusion with his company’s interest in the separately owned-and-operated winery, Copain Wines. “Punchdown Cellar’s goal,” said Thomson, “is to provide the same excellent production services, but with an increased emphasis on telling our clients’ unique stories and spreading the word about the incredible wines being made here each year by great, often under-the-radar, winemakers.”
