What makes your winery stand out from the rest? Does your brand story go beyond a sleek label?
Through her company, VINT, Scout Driscoll helps wine brands evolve and share their stories in unconventional ways. According to Scout, a brand is about the experience your consumers have when they connect with your product. If your label doesn’t radiate brand strategy, then it’s just a piece of paper. Luckily, Scout and the team at VINT are helping clients find their North Star, differentiate their brand, and connect with their people.      
In this inaugural episode of VINTed, Rise25 Co-founder Dr. Jeremy Weisz interviews host Scout Driscoll about the ways her company, VINT, is changing the game for wine brands. Scout shares how her company thinks differently about wine branding and design, reveals her favorite wine label designs, and discusses how your brand story can move beyond the label. Stay tuned for Scout’s journey to explore the question: What moves wine?
