"We set out to design a brand which would engage the millennial wine consumer in a unique way and dramatically stand out in the midst of some stiff competition on shelf," said Anne Gustafson, Director of Creative Services. "Acronyms are a huge part of this consumer's vocabulary, so the brand name instantly grabs their attention with its cerebral word-play and high contract label."

Brand developer Sara Perdigao was the visionary behind the innovative name and concept for the brand. "Acronym was inspired by modern technology and communication," said Perdigao. "The wine embraces 'digital efficiency' in the modern world while elevating the communication style that is evident in the everyday lexicon for millennials. This wine speaks to a generation that has come of age with technology." It invites consumers to delight in a little TLC or embrace the need for a little R&R offering a new discovery in the wine aisle that they are sure to enjoy.

Millennials now hold a significant portion of the buying power for beverage alcohol. According to The Nielsen Company, 65% of consumers age 26-34 are considered "core consumers," drinking wine daily or several times a week. Acronym associates with these millennial drinkers in their language and invites them to try the next Gr8 wine.

"We understand that younger wine drinkers are far less influenced by traditional wine brands and are constantly on the lookout for the next wine discovery," said Kathleen Burns, Brand Manager. "These consumers are less likely to gravitate to a wine their parents might have enjoyed and instead are enthusiastic about uncovering an original wine brand like Acronym." 

Dominated by millennial consumers, the domestic Red Bend category has grown substantially. In the last two years Red Blends have accounted for over 2.7 million cases, making it the fastest growing red wine varietal according to The Nielsen Company.  Acronym taps into this growing trend offering consumers a great wine at an affordable price.

Acronym Red Blend is dark ruby red with aromas of red berry fruit combined with hints of roasted coffee, soft vanilla and milk chocolate. The wine is made for good food, fun friends and is a perfect partner to sausage and cheese appetizers or anything on the grill.

Winery Exchange is the only full-service, private brand, beverage alcohol company that sources beer, wine and spirits. The company blends extensive industry expertise with cutting-edge business practices resulting in a dynamic, fast-growing company poised to take advantage of new trends in the beverage alcohol industry.
