About Us

Who are we?

Winetasters Choice is a promotional agency in Texas. We started with wine promotion, but have evovled into doing any type of beverage. We have the ability to represent food as well, but on a more limited basis. We service the following cities and their surrounding areas: Dallas/Ft Worth, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Killeen, Hutto, Leander, Burleson, Corpus Cristi, El Paso, Mcallen, Brownsville and Pharr. 2018 will see us growing outside Texas as well.

How are we different from everyone else?

The standard in the promo world is to hire contractors. By law you cannot give contractors much direction, so how do you know your products are represented properly? We hire employees, so we can give as much direction and oversight as needed, so your products are represented in a manner befitting the reputation of your products and company.

Jay

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.

Guillermo

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!

Jim

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

HEB Burleson, Texas

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

Kroger, Studemont, Texas

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.

Adam

Whole Foods Domain, Austin, Texas

I am the wine buyer at Whole Foods Plano. Your ambassador Wayne is by far the best demo partner. We love his positive attitude, and stellar guest service skills! He is killing it for us! I wish we had more like him.  Thank you!!

I am the wine manager at Kroger Denton. I love working with Winetasters Choice. Their ambassadors are always punctual, polite, professional, well dressed, and handle themselves well.  I have never had a single problem with anyone, and am always happy when I know they are coming, because I know I don't have to worry about a thing when they are here.

Josh

Sherri is fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about her.  The customers love her too, and she has developed a great relationship with the regulars

Paul Schertz

Winetasters Choice has does an amazing job with all my wine tasting demos in multiple states. Curt was extremely helpful & accommodating for me as I navigated my way through this new retail demo world. He has made my job easier! Curt’s employs a team of ambassadors I trust to represent my brand well, not just some random model from an agency. His ambassadors take the time to learn about the product before the demo which results in sales. The post reports are always very detailed and come in a timely fashion. I highly recommend using Wine Tasters Choice – if you have a choice. Thanks Curt and Team! Keep up the great work!

In my role as wine specialist for Whole Foods Market Gateway, I have worked with numerous wine demo companies. Winetasters Choice consistently sends the most professional, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable representatives. I see them as a valued supplement to my wine department and my guests regularly relay their shared satisfaction to both myself and my leadership

Mika Jordan

Wine buyer, Whole Foods Gateway, Austin, Texas

Winetasters Choice has been a true lifesaver! Professional, responsive and adaptable, they are able to meet all of my client's needs-from decorating the demo tables a certain way for promotional events, to strategizing about the best use of our demo promotion dollars. If my mother was in the wine business, I would recommend she use Winetasters Choice! They offer 5 stars PLUS service and deliver every time!
