Argentine Wine Brand, Algodon Fine Wines, Continues Rollout of its Wines with Debut of Direct to Consumer E-Commerce for Argentine Shoppers
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / September 10, 2020 / Algodon Fine Wines, a wholly owned subsidiary of Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:VINO), and a premium wine brand from the San Rafael, Mendoza wine region of Argentina, has announced the launch of its e-commerce initiative servicing patrons in Argentina, at AlgodonWines.com.ar. The e-commerce store sells and ships Algodon wines direct from its San Rafael, Mendoza winery to consumers living in Argentina. This debut is part of an expanded effort to rollout the brand's premium Malbec-based wines, as well as the rest of the Algodon portfolio of award-winning varietals and blends.
Algodon recently announced the launch of its e-commerce initiative servicing the United States, starting with an opportunity with California based VinPorter Wine Merchants to create AlgodonFineWines.com for consumers in the U.S. The U.S. e-commerce store, powered by VinPorter, links to a virtual storefront showcasing the Algodon wines currently distributed in the U.S. In addition to the Algodon Fine Wines site powered by VinPorter, these wines are also available throughout the U.S. both in-store and online at such retailers as Spec's, Sherry-Lehmann, The Noble Grape and the Vivino Marketplace.
"The ability to sell our wines direct to consumer online in Argentina could not be more exciting for our brand;" said Scott Mathis, CEO and Chairman of Algodon Fine Wines. "We believe the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly accelerated the growth of the already booming e-commerce marketplace. We launched the Argentine website for Argentina consumers during the height of the pandemic. The resulting sales have been far better than we anticipated and continue to grow. We are excited about this opportunity, as it adds another dimension to our e-commerce initiatives. By selling DTC - direct to consumer, we eliminate the wholesaler and retailer, and the company retains a much greater margin. With a population of nearly 45 million people, we intend to become a leader in e-commerce wine and olive oil sales in Argentina."
