Others attract a variable fee. Established clients can benefit from discounts. Services are available to wholesalers and retailers.
The driving forces behind high profits in quality restaurants are in the following order: wine sales, quality food and the right image. The standard mark-up on wines is 200% + VAT or more, even for wines costing tens of pounds per bottle. Also, providing the diners with the correct wine/food accompaniment advice results in repeated sales. Often clients without appropriate guidance choose the wrong wine for their food resulting in a total dislike of both as opposed to mutual enhancement. Yet having a sommelier is the exception rather than the rule for all but but the most prestigious restaurants.
This is why we offer training and sales courses with our wines, designed to maximises sales for wholesalers and retailers.
