(Ann Arbor, Mich) – Cherries & Grapes, a Michigan-based business, launched an online marketplace in August offering a variety of Michigan wine and specialty products. Consumers can now have their favorite wine, cider and specialty products shipped directly from Michigan producers on the CherriesAndGrapes.commarketplace. Likewise, Michigan businesses can now easily and safely offer their products online, with no upfront cost.
“We are doubling down on Michigan,” says the Cherries & Grapes Team. “Anyone that has spent time in our great state knows that Michigan has amazing products and wonderful people. We’re putting our money on that winning combination.”
Wineries and cider producers are now able to quickly get up-and-running with CherriesAndGrapes.com, complete with automated ID verification and logistics assistance.
“We like to think that we make life easier for Michigan businesses that want to sell online,” representatives from Cherries & Grapes says. “The best part is that producers avoid the headaches of developing their own solution, and leverage the collective marketing and technology experience offered by Cherries & Grapes.”
According to Michael Mikhjian, Cherries & Grapes Chief Technology Officer, a store can be online and processing orders in a day or two.
Cherries & Grape’s first online retail store is Chateau de Leelanau, a Michigan Vineyard and Winery located just north of Traverse City on the Leelanau Peninsula.
“Chateau de Leelanau has award-winning wines, but they are not available outside their tasting room in Suttons Bay,” comments the team. “By offering their wines on CherriesAndGrapes.com, they are able to deliver wine to customers anywhere in Michigan in a very cost-effective way.”
In addition to providing an online storefront, Cherries & Grapes also promotes its partners on various social media platforms and via other marketing channels.
