Enjoyed the AGM, though the queue was too slow moving to pick up a glass and try any of the wines on offer. More distribution points for glasses in future?
A suggestion. When there’s a question that the chairman cannot answer instead of saying “I don’t know, I’ll find out” why not see if any of the other Politburo members sitting up front know the answer? I could see your finance guy trying to help out at one stage, but no it was not to be.
Clearly on brand identity you are going to have to drop the “1874” and use a friendlier font. I would resist any siren calls to change your name to Wine! or some such. “Society” could go though.
The question I would have asked but you had plenty already is: Any opportunities arising from the demise of Majestic?
Naked Wines is pretty ghastly, a network of wine outlets across the nation serviced by a trust worthy co-operative/membership organisation might be able to buck the high street trend.
