The Beverage Information Group held a reception at the recent WSWA Convention to recognize the 2011 Growth Brand Awards winners in the wine and spirits categories. This year’s reception was the first time the Growth Brand Awards were presented in conjunction with WSWA at a formal event. Approximately 100 representatives from the industry’s iconic brands attended and accepted their awards.
“We’d like to congratulate all the Growth Brand Awards winners again,” said Beverage Information Group executive vice president Charles Forman. “We wish them continued success and look forwarding to seeing many of them next year.”
Growth Brand Awards winners were recognized in four categories: Rising Stars, Fast Track, Established Growth and Comeback. The categories are designed to organize the wine and spirits brands demonstrating notable growth in a meaningful, quantifiable way to help retailers, restaurateurs and the industry at large discern existing and emerging trends.
