Ceja Vineyards Recommendations

There are many different routes the Ceja Vineyards can go that may be beneficial to the company. I came up with a few options.

Option 1: The target group that will be marketed towards is the Generation Y and Millennial group. Use of the Internet and social media will be used to promote the company as well as draw in new customers who are excited about the business. This group of people may be a little bit price sensitive, making it difficult to find the perfect price and bring in as many people as possible. Option 2: The focus can be on expanding the loyalty and membership benefits of the current program. There has been steady growth and an increasing demand. One downfall of this is that there will be deals, discounts, and promotions, which will drop the price of wine and limit the amount of money being taken in. Also, the current members do not fit under one certain demographic, so it’s tough to do the research needed. It will be very difficult to measure the certain statistics needed to really understand if this is the best option. Option 3: Wine lovers and connoisseurs are the target market. This can be done by offering the same lines of wine that these people usually buy. Since this group of people is not price sensitive, there will not need to be a drop in price or deals and discounts in order to draw them in. To spread the word, they can promote using the internet and social media, highlighting the unique experience that customers get when going into their store.

I feel that option 3 is the best option due to the fact that wine lovers are not price sensitive, they are grouped so that it will not be difficult to do research on them, and they pretty much check off every box that Ceja Vineyards has when evaluating their…...

...Resumen Del Caso Stormhoek Vineyards es un pequeño viñedo localizado en África del Sur.

Sula Vineyards

...reputation, refusing to bribe officers to obtain the necessary licenses and took care of promoting its products, through marketing campaigns and wine tasting events, in the attempt of changing Indians’ culture towards wine. For what concerns the type of wines to start production with, Samant successfully identified those that could best accompany the spicy flavours of the Indian cuisine and, subsequently, he diversified the firm’s portfolio by introducing more varieties of white and red wines. Finally, he has secured the unique and valuable expertise of some of the brightest players in the financial sector, who have enthusiastically joined him in the firm’s activities. This combination of factors have allowed Samant to put Sula’s Vineyards in a very comfortable position to exploit the huge growth that everyone expects from the Indian wine market; right now, the firm seems to have a competitive advantage to further develop in the near future, if the right strategy will be pursued. Question 3: Looking at the numbers, Sula has been extremely profitable in 2007, with net profits that increased more than six fold since the year before; also, sticking to market forecasts, it seems that an explosive growth has just begun in India, an opportunity that should definitely be exploited. Now that the business is well established and generates a steady stream of revenues, Samant may consider to raise additional debt to finance the long-term challenge of producing premium red wines in...

...CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION The beauty-care service industry is now booming. As a business, as well as an opportunity, this sector already started to contribute in the economic growth. Along with the increase of disposable income, the expenditure of the customers in this sector significantly increases. Today beauty care service is not just a luxury, it is a necessity. Along with this growing significance, the issues of service quality and customer satisfaction have also become burning questions. The findings of the study indicated that, when choosing a specific parlor, the customer gave importance to the service provider’s behavior and knowledge, the environment of the parlor, counseling facilities and information-dissemination system, and affordability. This article also reveals that custom-ers of the high-end parlors were highly satisfied with the environment, the executive’s behavior, the complaint-handling system and trustworthiness. The use of materials, service provider’s behavior, executive’s knowledge level, safety and hygiene issues were also satisfactory. Though the customers were to some extent accepting of such factors as service accuracy, understanding customers’ need, prompt service and accessibility, there was still room for improvement. The findings of the study indicated that the common service-quality variables that were creating customer satisfac-tion could be categorized into four broad groups; these are Support & Facility Factor, Employee...

...Recommendation Based on the foregoing findings of the study, the researchers came up with some recommendations which are as follows: 1. Suggestions for further research Other term? Other term? The researchers recommend that further studies be conducted with a different locale, population and methodology. For further studies, the researchers suggest to have a larger sample size (which is representative of the total population/ to generate higher outcomes of confidence level). Further research is necessary to provide more corroborating evidence that would further support the findings of this study. Researchers also recommend to continuously explore changes in demographic factors in order to evaluate whether these changes will affect consumer’s purchase intention as oppose to the results of this study. In addition, it is also suggested to construct the survey which is answerable by Juster’s scale (7 point scale) as recommended by marketers (East et al, 2013). 2. Managerial Suggestions Ang pangit ng sentence ko. haha Ang pangit ng sentence ko. haha The reason why consumers are not likely to buy eco-labelled products is that they are not familiar with eco-labels. Since there is a low positive linear correlation between awareness and purchase intention, marking products with eco-labels could be a viable source of competitive advantage provided that the eco-labeled products have extensive advertisement to increase perceived quality and is on par with other...

Ceja Vineyards

...Ceja Vineyards 1) What has made Ceja Vineyards successful to date? Consider both favorable and unfavorable factors. The success of any business starts with a good story. Stories can be captivating, educational, thought-provoking, and inspirational. A story that is genuine and humble can create a deep connection between the consumer and the business. A properly communicated story can cause the audience to experience a vicarious feeling of nostalgia. In the case of Ceja Vineyards, the story is humble and relatable. Winetasting (and drinking in general) tends to spark up conversation. For instance, when I toured the Terlato Family wineries in Napa, the man that was providing us with various wine samples (while also sampling them himself), decided to share a special wine with us. Of course, the “special” part of the wine was centered in its story. One day while workers were installing some posts to brace up the grape vines, they bumped into something hard in the dirt. The workers removed the object from the ground and, to their surprise, discovered that it was a tomahawk. Further research on the tomahawk confirmed that it was a genuine Native American weapon that dated back several hundred years. The vines that were in the immediate vicinity produced their best tasting wine, which they properly named “Tomahawk.” It just so happens to be their most expensive wine as well. Here I am several years later, bragging about this Tomahawk wine that I got to try and why it has......

The Song of the Vineyard

...THE LORD PLANTS A VINEYARD ISAIAH 5:1-7 A RESEARCH PAPER SUBMITTED TO DR. TODD BEALL IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPLETION OF THE COURSE, OBST 661 B02 ISAIAH Introduction Let us begin this lesson with a word of prayer: Lord Jesus, we ask for your continued grace as we study these passages from Isaiah and learn what it is that you wish for your Church to take from the prophetic nature found in this ancient song sung by the prophet about your vineyard. Let your Holy Spirit guide us through this lesson and the study of your Holy Word. Amen. As we delve into this particular passage of Scripture you will notice that Isaiah weaves the two basic themes of judgment and salvation interchangeably throughout the accounts recorded in this prophecy. By using the agrarian image of the vineyard, in these two pericopes (which are sections of a whole), Isaiah makes a perfect case in point of God’s continued grace in the accomplishment of His divine will in all circumstances. Summary Statement: The objective of this lesson is to understand Isaiah’s creative use of the prophetic language in this image of the vineyard in order to teach the Church that through God’s judgment, which is richly deserved by all, they can be comforted to experience God’s overwhelming grace and salvation. The Parable Explained There are many different views when it comes to identifying the genre, or literary type, of this prophecy. The majority of which lie in how the......

...Ceja vineyards entrance into the distribution market of the winery may be faced with several forces from competition. The first is a threat as a new entrant. As a new entrant targeting the U.S. Hispanic consumer segment, may require Ceja to revamp their premium wine Ceja is known for. The may incur substantial incremental promotional expenses, and they may lose their rapidly growing sales channel of their wine buying club.1 Ceja access to distribution channels can be a barrier to entry also, because of the new entrants’ need to obtain distribution for its product. As a new entrant they may have to persuade the distribution channels to accept its product by providing extra incentives which reduce profits. 2 There is also the threat of the same products being offered at a cheaper price that are easily used in the same manner. Ceja wine is typically to be enjoyed with Mexican cuisine. Another vinery may offer the same brand of wine at a cheaper cost and is easily accessible in various markets. The lower the prices of substitutes and the higher the quality and performance of substitutes, the more intense are the competitive pressures posed by substitute products. 2 Bargaining power of the customer, why should someone chose Ceja?

DéJà Vu and the Brain

...Déjà vu and the Brain We have all some experience of a feeling, that comes over us occasionally,, of what we are saying and doing having been said and done before, in a remote time - of our having been surrounded, dim ages ago, by the same faces, objects, and circumstances - of our knowing perfectly what will be said next, as if we suddenly remember it! (Dickens in David Copperfield - chapter 39 (1)) It happens to me and it has probably happened to you. It is sudden and fleeting, leaving as unexpectedly as it came. While the experience is striking in its clarity and detail, it is difficult to recapture or recount. Generally, it is left unexplained and is described in a vague sense, often simply as, "Wow, I just got the strangest déjà vu." Because it is so difficult to research and seems to have no deleterious effects on daily and long-term nervous system function, déjà vu has been left largely to the wayside of neurobiological investigation. In all of its ambiguity, déjà vu is still a perplexing phenomenon that has not yet been fully explained. The value of truly understanding the source of déjà vu and its circuitry is in uncovering one of the many keys to the role of the conscious self in the functioning of the brain. What is déjà vu and how does it work? Déjà vu is considered a common phenomenon. Surveys show that about one third of the population has had the most common form of déjà vu sensations (1). Due to the subjective and often indescribable nature of the......

Calaveras Vineyards

...NATASHA GARDNER 02/20/2010 CALAVERAS VINEYARDS The other alternative is to support the loan proposal. Although it is true that Calaveras Vineyards is smaller than the majority of the current companies that are in the wine business it appears that they have had a lot of positive growth in spite of the constant change in ownership. If a company is still able to maintain its growth and brand image during challenging times like that, how much more growth can you expect when the company finally gets owners in there that want to invest and stay with it. In the past year, 1992, Calaveras Vineyards did have a drop off in sales but this was due in part to their lack of representation by a sales organization. I agree that Goldengate Capital should invest in Calaveras Vineyard. This is based on several factors such as the Net Present Value of the firm, the projected sales, and the potential growth of the company in their market. Currently Calaveras was currently being held on Stouts PLC books as $7 million and the purchase price of $4.1 million would be considered a significant discount. All of these factors, and more, pointed toward going ahead with the loan. Ninety-five percent of U.S. wine exports are from California. This is expressed statistically in the following manner: $1 billion winery revenues in 2008 (again, a 630% increase from $137 million in 1990), and 55 million cases sold to 125 different countries (which is up 630% from 12 million cases sold in 1990). 526...
