Winegrower and Owner
"What I liked about Charles Communications' proposal was that it was fresh, different, creative, and they are unabashedly confident about it. It was specific to us and exciting. I likened it to enjoying Thai spring rolls and green curry with Alsatian Riesling vs. a heavy steak and a high alcohol Cabernet Sauvignon. It was energizing and I think the press will
think so too. "
"Charles Communications' expertise and contacts and creative approach
helped jump start the launch of our store...strategic media placement in hip, edgy and relevant media outlets really got us off the ground!"
Founder & CEO, Square One Organic Vodka
"We could not have chosen a more creative, forward-thinking, values-driven firm to help us introduce our company and product. Phenomenal media results accompanied by Charles Communications’ environmental networking and industry connections have launched us into a much higher stratosphere that we ever projected."
Jessica Kogan and Cameron Hughes
Cameron Hughes Winery
"What differentiates Charles Communications is that they are true media strategists. When they communicate it is meaningful, relevant, targeted, and smart. The result is that when they speak, people listen and we benefit.
Charles Communications to us is a new kind of marketing agency for the wine industry. They understand the need to connect with consumers in their media, beyond traditional channels. We have been the beneficiaries. From exploring radio and print to online blogging and bulletin boards, the impact to our company has been tremendous. Since our work with CCA, our direct sales have tripled, mailing lists quadrupled, and the trade seems to like us a little better too!"
From the media about our efforts for Cameron Hughes
Good Grape Wine Company
"You can hardly read a magazine, newspaper, or online article without running into a mention of Cameron Hughes. The blogosphere has
certainly supported Cameron Hughes... the PR... is breaking a sweat,
VP Director of Marketing & Sales, Fess
Parker Vineyard & Winery
"Over the timeframe that Charles Communications Associates worked with our winery, from 2000-2007, they helped the winery achieve press results that Fess Parker said was among the best press he’s received since his Hollywood days. The campaign with the Smithsonian Institution in 2004 for our winery yielded amazing media results and contributed to a record sales year."
