Casella Family Brands has launched a UK marketing campaign for its Yellow Tail wine brand that aims to hand out 3,500 samples a day in the coming weeks.

The company will visit 15 UK cities in a yellow Volkswagen camper van over the next 12 weeks, it said today. As well as sampling, brand ambassadors will also hand out free gifts and conduct other "random acts of colour", according to Casella.

The campaign, which will be supported by digital media, will cost GBP800,000 (US$1.2m) and expects to reach 11m consumers.
