JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts is rolling out its new JWM Wine Club for VIP guests. The gourmand-centric collaboration is a joint effort with Treasury Wine Estates. The purpose of the exclusive club is to add value to the experience for JW Marriott guests, complementing their passion for the grape with in-home tasting experiences. Many of the varietals come from several of California's most awarded luxury estates.
The JWM Wine Club will ship fine wine directly to club members’ homes on a quarterly basis, each shipment costing $150. Members will choose from four samplings and pick their two favorites. They will then receive a 750-ml bottle of each of their selections. The deluxe package also includes notes from a JW Marriott wine ambassador, recipes to pair with the bottles, and how to choose, taste, and enjoy the best wine for any occasion, according to JW Marriott.
"We are thrilled to officially introduce our new JWM Wine Club, a program which was designed to further enhance our connection with our guests by providing luxuries that speak to their personal interest," said Mitzi Gaskins, VP and resident and global brand manager for JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts. "The collaboration with Treasury Wine Estates offers an innovative way for guests to access and experience fine wine, providing them with a JW Marriott experience to savor at home at their leisure."
The management team at Treasury Wine Estates is equally excited about the newly formed alliance with JW Marriott, seeing it as a window of opportunity to drum up interest from new, targeted consumers with an ideal demographic. "The JWM Wine Club is an extension of a very important strategic partnership between Treasury Wine Estates and JW Marriott," said Nicole Carter, VP of public relations for Treasury Wine Estates. "We are always looking for dynamic ways to talk to new consumers. I believe the JWM Wine Club brings a new level of innovation into our hospitality business and allows us to bring a taste of California to consumers at home."
