CLUB MEMBER & GUEST SPEAKER         GILLETT JOHNSON

 
Gillett gave an informative and certainly entertaining presentation about his business, International Vines, and the many aspects of the industry.  Gillett discussed branding and all the considerations that go into marketing wines.  He included snippets of his family history and how he entered the business.  He discussed how regulations impact the business of wine producing and distribution.  He showed family photos as well as a beautiful photo of one of his vineyards located in New Zealand.  An interesting fact that Gillett pointed out is that 75% of wines sold in the US cost under $8 dollars a bottle.
