Zonin brands have been named “Hot Brand” for the second year in a row by Impact magazine, and this year the two “Hot Brand” awards were given to Zonin Prosecco and Winemaker’s Collection. This award highlights the tremendous growth the Zonin brands have achieved in the US market. The 2013 “Hot Brand” award recognizes Casa Vinicola Zonin’s consumer relevance and truly validates the brand’s bold growth in the US.
“This award is a testament to our incredibly talented winemaker, innovative sales and marketing teams, and the loyal sparkling wine consumers who have made the Prosecco a worldwide phenomenon,” said Pietro Morelli, Director of Marketing for Casa Vinicola Zonin USA.
Impact Databank is the leading source of exclusive data on the alcoholic beverage industry in the US and internationally. To be considered for the 2013 Impact Hot Brand Award, a brand must achieve a drastic increase in sales growth in the market, where total volume must have grown at least 10% in each of the past three calendar years, or at least 15% with a 250,000 nine-liter case depletion. Awarded Zonin brands include Zonin Prosecco, a market leader in the Italian sparkling category and Winemaker’s Collection wines, available in nine varietals, including Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Chianti DOCG, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC, Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Moscato, and Riesling.
