Make A Case For Christmas
Monday 16th November – Christmas Eve 2020

About the Bordeaux Case

This year’s Christmas celebrations may look a little precarious but Bordeaux Wines is making sure that the festive season isn’t cancelled for independent retailers and consumers with an exciting seasonal campaign.

Developed to help independent wine merchants boost their sales of Bordeaux wines in the run up to the festive season, The Bordeaux Case for Christmas campaign provides a great opportunity for wine shops to encourage new and existing customers to discover and enjoy the diversity and quality of modern Bordeaux wines, without breaking the bank.

Participation criteria

Getting involved couldn’t be easier and is open to all UK independent wine merchants. You simply need to run a high visibility campaign to encourage customers to make a Bordeaux case for Christmas which they can enjoy over the festive period or offer as a gift.

Create a Bordeaux Case

The case must include 3 different styles of wine to show the diversity that modern Bordeaux has to offer: this could be a dry white, fruit-forward red, full-bodied red, crisp rosé, sumptuous sweet or sparkling crémant. The case must include at least one Bordeaux red wine and one Bordeaux white wine, and all wines must have RRPs of £6-25.

You could either:

  1. Select 6 bottles (across 3 styles) to create a pre-made Bordeaux case for Christmas
  2. Highlight Bordeaux wines to your customers so that they can select to create their own 6 bottle Bordeaux Case

Promote it

We ask that you promote this to your consumer base in 2 ways:

  1. Using the seasonal POS pack that we’ll post to you that will include display items and goodies
  2. Via your usual communications channels i.e. social media, website, newsletters etc.

Your campaign needs to run for minimum of 2 weeks between

Monday 16th November and Thursday 24th December 2020
