Zuidema Wines is a full-service consulting firm that specializes in working with small wineries to help them create an environment of success and achieve their full quality potential. Guided by Rudy Zuidema, acclaimed winemaker and vineyard consultant with nearly 30 years of experience, our consulting services range from enhancing existing winemaking programs to completely building in-house teams from the ground up for new start-up wineries.
Rudy brings a gentle, non-manipulative approach to winemaking that leads to powerfully structured wines with layers of character and vineyard-inspired complexity. His focused winemaking practices and techniques consistently produce increased aromas, concentrated flavors, and lengthened finishing textures in wines that become beautiful expressions of our clients’ brand.
We also know that making great wines isn’t always enough in today’s competitive marketplace. Those great wines also need to be sold. Whether we are working with our clients to develop effective PR and marketing campaigns, helping them to build distributor relationships, or networking with our numerous trade and press contacts, we have the expertise and connections to help our clients succeed.
