You get into the business because you’re passionate about wine; the subtleties of the taste and the sheer joy of sharing it with others. But now you are losing sleep, worrying about whether you are actually making money. Sure, you see the sales and you the make bank deposits, but the money seems to go out even faster.
The buck stops with you. But where do you turn for help? Through my comprehensive courses created specifically for boutique wineries, you’ll regain financial control, tame QuickBooks and become a full-bodied wine producer.
Any of these sound familiar?
Owners of boutique and family wineries face a unique set of challenges, but none are too big to overcome. If you recognize any of these statements, we can help:
- “My tax return says I’m losing money. But it can’t be that much, right?”
- “I don’t know where to focus my efforts to get the best results.”
- “I need to know how much my wine costs, so I can sell it at the right price.”
- “Everyone says QuickBooks is the way to go, but my reports don’t make any sense.”
- “I’ve asked for help, but all I got was confusing technical jargon.”
We created a suite of webinars, articles, and other resources (we call them Quickies) to help you answer these questions and make sense of your finances. It’s all in plain English and designed especially for boutique winery owners.
Running a winery is a complex and challenging job. We make it easier for you with our winery management program, The Silver Club.
