At the end of the year, wineries seem to slow in production schedules, and most Vintners take time off to wind down after having wrapped up harvest.
There is also a good deal of planning on the business side for 2016 and beyond into the future.
When some wineries look at how to get over the hump in terms of overhead vs profit margin, some of them will look to consider negociant wines as a way to supplement their portfolios.
When comparing the ongoing cost of production on a project of any size versus buying wine in bulk, bottling the following month, and having the wine to market, perhaps 6 weeks or less from time of purchase, sometimes the decision is easy.
The Pacific Northwest bulk market offers myriad opportunities to help your winery project surge from break even to profitable, and this could begin as soon as next year.
