I am happy to report that we doubled our wine club sign up goal after the workshop.  We are off to a great start!

Nicole Pattalochi, Director of Hospitality, Archery Summit Winery

Lynda’s energy and confidence in sales is conveyed through her various examples and exercises. She really challenges you to examine your sales approach and hone the skills that are lacking at any sales level experience. These skills are not just about the sales delivery, but how to observe the non-verbal cues of a buyer. Her coaching also focuses on improving the hospitality of a tasting room by creating a richer experience for the guest. Our multi-bottle and case sales have increased 3-fold since the seminar – we definitely see a difference in our tasting room!

Public workshops are held in Napa Valley, CA. Private classes are wherever the client wants them.

The classes are offered once a month September-May.

People want to buy; they do not want to be sold. Dale Carnegie taught people how to build trusted relationships; and I taught his course. I added his philosophy about relationship-building to the basic fundamentals of selling. It is all about seeing where the other person is thinking from. You may want to learn more in my book: Romancing The Grape.

Absolutely. In-house workshops are personalized to the winery, the participants and to the expectations of the management team.
