New campaign for Jacob's Creek
Published:  31 March, 2010

Jacobís Creek is challenging consumersí ideas of taste in the new stage of its True Character campaign, which it predicts will reach more than 10 million shoppers.

The Taste programme includes the launch of†an online navigational tool called ďwine wizardĒ to help consumers select wine to suit their individual taste and is supported by neck collars, shelf barkers and car park posters.

The programme is underpinned by the tagline, Because Itís Your Taste That Matters.

To coincide with the campaign Jacobís Creek is running a consumer promotion with London-based restaurant Dans Le Noir.

Diners will be able to take the Jacobís Creek Taste Experience, where customers eat and drink in total darkness, allowing them to abandon all their pre-conceptions and re-evaluate the wine.

The promotion lasts for three months from April 1.

ďJacobís Creek has been recognised by wine critics and received influential awards for its consistent wines that offer true varietal expression and over-deliver on quality at every price point,Ē said Mathew Bird, head of marketing for Jacobís Creek.

ďWhile these endorsements will always be important to the brand, we also believe that when it comes to evaluating wine, consumersí views are equally as important Ė which serves as the underlying message of our overarching True Character campaign.Ē
