"Since that first harvest of 1980, this intense question continuously nags my thought processes. 'Why do we continue to deny the use of deep strategy, continuing with slap on the back politics and purchasing of new technologies as though that pretty website and responsive technology is going to take us to the promised land?" 

"It's as though we still can't see that romance is what we use to sell wine.......not what we base our business strategies on.   When you're product isn't selling through, even though you focus-grouped and spent half a fortune on expensive client dinners, you're stuck with that empty feeling of doing all the 'right things'.......but you're hands are empty.

This is business nonsense, not business intelligence."

-Nicholas Karavidas - Principal at Wine Concepts Business Intelligence Services

“Wine Concepts is the only company I know of in the U.S. combining several decades of large wine brand management knowhow with the strategies and insights that Fortune Companies have been utilizing for nearly two generations.”
— Carl Schroeder, CEO Geo Strategies, Inc.
