As a result of having our wine in all those Wal-Marts I talked about earlier, Dad and I have found a distributer to take our wine not only to Wal-Mart, but state wide. Mostly I am excited, but as we get closer, a tiny part of me is starting to get nervous. This is kind of make or break. We have a salesman now, more of a friend of the family than an employee, and he takes good care of all those little shops along the way from here to there. We are comfortable with the trickle of money coming in once a week. The distributer has placed a healthy order, so that is promising, just as long as they keep reordering. Will their sales force keep us in mind at every store across this big state? I sure hope so.
If you live in Missouri, do us a favor and buy a bottle of our wine at your local store when you see it. ;)
I hope this is just the beginning of realizing our full potential.
