Innovative outdoor ad draws Ontarians closer to Wine Country Ontario
NIAGARA, ON, June 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Wine Country Ontario has placed an actual glass of wine in a transit shelter in downtown Toronto to make a dramatic point about just how close Wine Country Ontario is to Torontonians.
The installation board, places the glass on a table behind plexiglass, with a headline that reads: "So close you can taste it". This exciting element is part of an integrated communications campaign, "Drink It All In" that launched Monday, June 11th, 2012 with outdoor, print, an experiential tasting program and is also supported by promotional and social media activity across the province.
"We are thrilled about how this campaign provides a strong call-to-action providing consumers with an invitation to come and visit Wine Country Ontario. The visuals show the sheer beauty of our vineyards while communicating the variety of things you can do in wine country," says Ed Madronich, proprietor of Flat Rock Cellars and Chair of the Wine Council of Ontario "for Wine Country Ontario".
"Great tasting wine is at the heart of everything we do and this key message is integrated in an innovative label concept that is reflected throughout the creative design," says Madronich.
Ontarians can see these exciting new ads in the June and July issues of Food and Drink magazine or look for them on Signature Columns in downtown Toronto locations and at bus shelters and billboards in Toronto, Ottawa and London.
Consumers are also being encouraged to go on a scavenger hunt to find the stunt board. Twitter followers of @winecountryont are being asked to submit photos of the board via Twitter and use the hashtag #socloseyoucantasteit.
