Georgia Winery Unveils Expansion Plans

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Georgia Winery Tuesday unveiled the expansion plans for the near future. The company is set to double the production capacity and is working on making their bestsellers available on wine shops in different states including Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.  

A representative of the company said, “Soon you would be able to find sweet southern wines at a wine shop near you. The distribution plans for the year 2013 includes Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.  We have also doubled our production capacity from 12,000 cases per year to 25,000 cases. It is fermenting in the tanks now and would be ready by the end of this summer.”

According to sources, the company has also changed their logo and introduced a new label design the previous year as a part of the expansion plans. Experts view it as a way to appeal to the new market of wine shop consumers.  

The company would be distributing top sellers including Concord, Tail Gate Red, Blackberry, Georgia on My Mind and Strawberry to name a few.  

Tara Taymore from Georgia Winery said, “We are excited to get our sweet juicy wines to the wine shops, providing a fresh taste in the wine world. The flavours appeal to everyone, not just wine lovers.”

Georgia Winery started operations in 1983 and has seen a steady rise in demand over the last two decades. The third generation leadership is working to get the product into the hands of more consumers by opting for new channels. 

Georgia Winery was founded by Dr. Maurice Rawlings, a cardiologist over three decades ago. His daughter, Patty, now owns the winery along with her two children Tara Taymore and Adrian Prouty. The winery is the first one in the state of Georgia.
