Your label is the first impression of your wine. Many of your customers will be influenced not only by the type of wine you sell and taste but also by the overall presentation. According to market research, it was revealed that what’s on the outside of a package is often just as important as what’s inside. Consumer research shows that 1/3 of product decision-making is based on packaging alone. A product with strong branding & packaging isn’t just more likely to grab a customer’s attention, it’s also associated with the quality of the ingredients.
If you are looking for inspiration or ideas to come up with your wine label, look no further. Here are 10 awesome examples of wine label designs that are sure to grab your attention. Analyze and take note.

The prospect of AI ruling over humanity isn't a new one. However, with today's artificial intelligence technology becoming more and more... intelligent and widespread; could it be time to start worrying?
What is Artificial Intelligence?
AI gives a machine the ability to imitate intelligent human behavior. The concept of AI is based on the idea of building a machine capable of thinking, acting, and learning like humans.
With enough input (like historical data and user data), advanced hardware, and software systems combined, AI is a force to be reckoned with. From virtual home assistants (Apple's HomePod, Google Home and Amazon's Echo) that can adjust the lights on command, to healthcare systems that can potentially give a more accurate diagnoses than a human counterpart, AI can be utilized in many different industries and is continually growing throughout the years.

Look around right now.
Just stop and take a look at your desk or your chair or the cup you are drinking out of. Someone designed that; someone with a focused desire to reach out to you through a structured idea. They made that thing you are looking at right now. Does it inspire you or make you feel flat? Does it brighten your day or darken it? Have you really thought about why you chose that dress or those glasses or that phone?

With social media being utilized as a marketing tool to build and grow brands, engage with consumers and reach a specific target audience, you want to be able to measure and review your monthly analytics effectively. Each platform whether it might be Facebook, Instagram or Twitter includes an analytics page designed to help you understand the behavior of your fans and consumers. Depending upon the results from your analytics page, you should be able to glean from your data in order to make better marketing decisions. The problem is with an overwhelming amount of social media analytic data to process, it is fairly easy to leave out the most vital metrics and determine which metrics really matter. We can help.
We designed a Social Media Reporting Toolkit for business owners and professionals that will help you focus on the most important metrics and setting the right goals. In result, proving ROI.
Conventional wisdom may have told you that writing is a good habit. In today’s digital world, however, and especially in case of restaurant businesses, this statement holds true to a greater extent. Blogging is one of the most efficient ways to improve your search engine ranking.

Your social media metrics have been around as long as you can remember but even with that said, so many restaurateurs have never really mastered what to do with their monthly data and how to get the most out of it. Which is why Kulture Konnect's co-founder, Jorge Pacheco, offered a free webinar this past Tuesday titled, "Restaurants 101: How to Analyze Your Social Media Metrics Like a Marketing Pro," to share with restaurateurs the tools to understand and utilize their social media metrics like a marketing pro.
Each month, our team prepares a social media report for our social media clients and at some point we asked ourselves, as much as we prepare and meet with clients to go over numbers, do restaurant owners truly understand what these numbers mean?
Kulture Konnect wants to help restaurants utilize their social media marketing to it's full potential. This webinar will give restaurant owners a clear understanding of how to read monthly social media metrics, teach them which metrics matter the most, why they matter, and how they can make the most of these metrics proving ROI.
When was the last time you took a look at your restaurant branding and marketing?
Normally, branding & marketing are topics that take priority before and during the launch of a restaurant. During this initial stage of our restaurant launch, a lot of issues come up and are addressed. Things like the restaurant environment, the personality of the brand, the tone of voice for the restaurant, the restaurant logo and all that comes with it (color palette, philosophy, mission, vision, etc.), typography selection and treatment, restaurant collateral (menus, t-stands, table tents, etc.), photography and more put under the microscope. Unfortunately, branding and marketing tends to lose importance as the day-to-day operations take place.
The Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo in Downtown Los Angeles was nothing less than amazing. Kulture Konnect had the pleasure of attending both Sunday events and Tuesday events. A BIG shout out to The Reef Restaurant for their Culinary Clash win! It was wonderful to see all of our collegues from the California Restaurant Association! They do a spectacular job of hosting all of their members and making them feel like VIP. From coffee companies to beverage companies to chefs to restaurant owners. You name it, anyone in the food and beverage industry was in sight. The expo offered a variety of special events and featured education areas to help businesses in the food industry become more educated and more profitable.
