CoHo Vineyard and Winery is based in the United States. The company has a single vineyard. The company distributes full pallets of wine worldwide and sometimes sells wine by using a private label. Grape growing and wine production operations are owned and operated by a third-party company. The company uses bottles, accessories, and other disposables from a company in China.
CoHo Vineyard and Winery opens a second location. This location manages inventory for Wine Club members and includes a wine tasting room. The location also includes a warehouse and distribution center.
The wine club currently has 200 members. The company hopes to increase this number. The company holds events for club members in the tasting room and ships both full cases and individual bottles to members. The tasting room is not treated as a retail store. All sales to club members only and purchases must be made on-account.
