When the country’s oldest continuously operated family-owned winery, and an award-winning one at that, partners with a culinary powerhouse like the Food Network, delicious things are going to happen.
(PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Shine United, a full-service advertising, design and digital agency, has been named agency of record for entwine, a California wine brand developed by Wente Family Estates and Food Network – one of America’s oldest wineries and one of the most trusted names in food.
Distributed nationwide, entwine was crafted to fill a notable niche – wine with distinct flavor profiles that are paired with favored foods for all occasions, whether simple or refined. The entwine portfolio features four varietals – Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Pinot Grigio.
“We are thrilled to be working with such a dynamic agency,” said Amy Hoopes, chief marketing officer and executive vice president of global sales for Wente Family Estates. “After reviewing several agencies from across the country, Shine quickly became the clear choice. With an inspiring marketing strategy and creative portfolio, they have the talent and passion to elevate the entwine brand to the next level.”
Shine’s initial scope of work for entwine includes everything, from brand strategy and creative design to digital and social media.
“When the country’s oldest continuously operated family-owned winery, and an award-winning one at that, partners with a culinary powerhouse like the Food Network, delicious things are going to happen,” said Curt Hanke, Shine founder and executive director of account service. “We cannot wait to dig in and create some amazing work for this exceptional brand.”
