CAVE and the CWIDB jointly welcome Pierre Costa for a webinar on Monday, April 26, 2021, 1:00 PM that offers a unique opportunity to explore new digital channels that can bring customers to your winery doorstep. We will start with an overview of the digital marketing environment and have a hands-on seminar where we will setup a campaign on TripAdvisor.  We will present a practical example about targeting the right audience, creating your own ads using Canva, set up your budget and how to track it on your Google Analytics.

After Pierre’s presentation, Harvest Hosts will give an overview of their program that matches RV drivers and campers with wineries and vineyards for low-impact overnight stays.  The average guest spends more than $50 with the host winery.
