About Us

Winetasters Choice is a promotional agency that serves the state of Texas. We were founded in 2011, and started with a staff of 15, focusing on four markets. Since then we have grown considerably, and have expanded into the following markets:Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, El Paso, Galveston, College Station, Midland, and New Braunfels. We are in the process of expanding to four more markets as well. While our focus is brand promotion for wine, we do anything and everything from liquor, food products, healthcare products, and even non-food items. How are we different from other promotional agencies? The individuals that work for us are employees, not contractors. That means we can train our team, and hold them to standards befitting the quality of your product. In a nutshell, the state's definition of the difference between a contractor and an employee is the amount of direction given. You cannot, by law give contractors anything more than minimal direction. That means you cannot train them, or even give much direction. Anyone who joins us must go through a three step hiring process, and thorough checklist during the interview process. Everyone is tested on their products prior to performing their first demos solo, and we also offer ongoing training for everything from food and wine pairing, to customer service skills, or general wine knowledge, to name a few.

Your ambassadors do quite a good job here. Sold almost a case of each of the three wines, which was substantially better than we expected, considering it was a slow day.  I am very impressed.

Your ambassador Brian, did a fantastic job, and sold a case of each wine!! We would welcome him back anytime, and we greatly appreciate him!

I love having Winetasters Choice ambassadors in my store. The sales reflect very positively, even getting sales after the fact throughout the week.  They do a great job, and I am very pleased with the arrangement.

John

I really appreciate everything that Thyra does for us. She is very thorough, and very outgoing with my customers. My customers enjoy her very much. When she's not here, they're always asking for her.  I do request her all the time, because she is very fun, and a joy to work with.  We would love to keep Thyra here at this store as she does an amazing job for us.

Elaine Warren

Brian was really great. He was very helpful in the department.  He assists customers with unrelated questions, and does a good job. He sold through an entire case of the primitivo alone, which is what we really like to see.  He is very friendly and professional.  Thank you.
