The Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) channel has evolved—driven by consumer demands and the ability to connect directly with customers and control brand identity, more companies are adopting a DTC approach.

For wineries, the world of DTC has changed dramatically over the last ten years, but if you don't take time to reflect on and understand those changes, it's difficult to determine how they impact your business and your marketing.
