US: Beringer Vineyards secures Michael Buble tie-up
Beringer Vineyards has teamed with singer Michael Buble to become the exclusive wine of his 'Crazy Love Tour' in the US this autumn.
The Californian wine brand, which is owned by Treasury Wine Estates, said today (7 September) that it will launch a “multi-platform marketing campaign” around the tour, which starts in Hershey, Pennsylvania on 23 November. Fans of Buble will be able to take up offers and experiences at retail, restaurant and concert venues and “unique online components” throughout the duration of the tour.
The partnership will culminate in an exclusive performance by Buble for selected fans at Beringer Vineyards in Napa in the summer of 2011. Financial details behind the partnership were not disclosed.
The 14-date tour visits Madison Square Garden in New York, before winding up in Los Angeles on 13 December.
"I think Beringer and I are a great pairing,” said Buble. “They are a winery that mixes elegance and excitement in a way that is simpatico with my music. I think my fans will appreciate the combination."
Treasury Wine Estates is the new name for Foster's Group's global wine business.
