  2. 2. “THE MILLENNIAL GENERATION offers the wine industry the kind of growth potential not seen in more than 30 years.” - The Wine Market Council But their habits are so unique that very few wine brands have managed to earn their loyalty.
  3. 3. PUBLICHOUSEis changing the Millennial wine game one box at a time. INNOVATIVE PACKAGING that’s cheaper to ship, eco- friendly and keeps the wine fresh for longer. Ten cups packed into every box make it easy to share anytime, anywhere, with anyone. MULTI-CHANNEL DISTRIBUTION that ensures a wide breadth of availability for consumers, and varied revenue streams. QUALITY WINE crafted with the millennial palette in mind: sophisticated but affordable, just as delicious with fine French cuisine as it is with take-out Chinese. RELEVANT CONTENT that draws consumers to our online platform and keeps them coming back. *Prototype Packaging/Design. Subject to change as Product evolves.
  4. 4. Currently at only 3% of the $34B 2011 US market10 , there is massive growth potential for boxed wine, as demonstrated by the market penetration in Europe and Australia. Over the next 5 years, premium boxed wine will continue to grow at 27% year over year11 , resulting in a $5B market. SHOCKINGLY, 3L boxed wine is the fastest growing segment of the US wine industry. $ B $ B $ B $ B $ B 3% 18% 50% 50% Premium 3L Bag in Box as Percent of 2011 Wine Sales 15141312
  5. 5. BUT FIRST, what is a Millennial? Millennials are the 70 million consumers1 who are drinking wine earlier and at higher volumes than any other generation. Their drinking habits are distinct and unique: FORBRANDS THEY LOVE TRADING UP INSHORT,THEY’RETHEULTIMATESOCIALDRINKERS ECO-CONCIOUS & ON-THE-MOVE 50% 18% DRINKWINE EVERYWEEK 2 DRINKWINE DAILY 3 TYPICALLY WITH GROUPS OF FRIENDS SPENDMORETHAN 10%OFTHEIRINCOMEON EATING OUT, ALCOHOL, AND ENTERTAINMENT 4
  6. 6. ALWAYS ENOUGH TO GO AROUND: A standard 3L bag holds the same capacity as four traditional 750ml bottles. *Prototype Packaging/Design. Subject to change as Product evolves. SHARE WITH CLASS: A sleeve of 10 reusable, dishwasher safe stemless wine glasses makes sharing easier and classier than ever. LASTING FRESHNESS: Wine stays fresh for up to six weeks - almost fifteen times longer than bottled wine. A FRIEND TO THE PLANET: The Public House box has a reduced carbon footprint, and is entirely recyclable. Bladders are made of non-BPA plastic. OUR BOX is built for Millennials, by Millennials. While bottles are great for intimate dinners, they’re ecologically wasteful, expensive to ship, and only last a few days after opening. They’re too old school for these new drinkers. Here’s our solution:
  7. 7. AND WHERE do Millennials drink? Millennials are inherently social and on the move. Through carefully selected distribution and retail partners, we’ll strive to make our product available in places that their buying habits are otherwise unserved. TRADITIONAL RETAIL ENVIRONMENTS including wine and liquor stores will be a primary location for consumers to find Public House products. SPORTING EVENTS are an excellent application of our product, which contains no glass, is packaged with cups enough for a group, and is recyclable. MUSIC FESTIVALS are often attended by Millennials in groups, and buying drinks one at a time potentially means hours waiting on line. RESTAURANTS that align with our brand messaging are a perfect partner for Millennial consumers drinking more wine with meals than ever.

VERSATILE AND CONSISTENTLY COMPATIBLE, this is the wine we turn to no matter the reason or season. Hand picked from the Andes Mountains in Chile, our zesty Sauvignon Blanc is guaranteed to liven up any rooftop or dinner party.

THIS IS RED WINE to help you unwind. With rich plums and intense blackberries, our Cabernet will warm you up by the fireplace or chill you out dockside. The foolproof pick for a house party or dinner with friends, our red can hang with a hamburger or sophisticate any steak. With a wine this smooth, you may be tempted to keep it all for yourself, so let us remind you: our wine is for sharing. SAUVIGNONBLANC CABERNETSAUVIGNON BOLD FRUITY SPICYCRISP ZESTY BRIGHT
  9. 9. In the typical wine market, Q4 is the largest sales period. However, our boxed wine is a product guaranteed to sell from season to season. Whenever there is social drinking, there is Public House: Q1: Whether at home or in the office, no New Years party is complete without a crisp box of Sauvignon Blanc. Valentines Day offers opportunities for singles to commiserate with boxes of wine, while couples can enjoy a romantic evening at home without breaking the bank. Q2: With spring begins the months of picnics and outdoor cookouts, social occasions primed for our boxes. Q3: It’s as if the summer season was designed for Public House. Between beaches, barbecues and boating, our rosé will be a best seller through Labor Day. Q4: Fall festivities are ideal for our boxed wine. Halloween parties, Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas gifts are the perfect opportunity for gathering, celebrating, and drinking. WITH PUBLICHOUSE IT’SALWAYS BOXED WINE SEASON
  10. 10. MILLENNIALS have several problems, but nobody is solving them all... WHEN WINE ITCOMESTO ...UNTILNOW “BOTTLES AREN’T ALWAYS THE MOST PRACTICAL.” Our box is built for the way you and your friends drink. “BUYING WINE IS COMPLICATED.” Browse our wines online or check us out in your favorite store. “LEARNING ABOUT WINE IS INTIMIDATING.” Daily content and events that teach you about wine in a way that is relevant to your lifestyle.
  11. 11. WE’RE NOT JUST selling a product, we’re building a platform. Editorial and video content hosted at and around the web will keep visitors engaged and ultimately drive to sales, both online and in-store.
  12. 12. The US wine industry is choked by a series of prohibition era laws, collectively known as the three tier model, forcing product from winery to distributor to retailer to consumer, with all parties taking margins along the way. Public House has worked tirelessly to find work-arounds to bring down costs for the end buyer, and will continue to do so as our model evolves. One of the loopholes in the three tier system is recently enacted legislation that allows wineries to sell product directly to consumers. With our current model, we’ve struck a partnership with Brotherhood Winery to do just that. By utilizing their licenses, we are able to sell product direct to consumer via our online portal at, direct to retailers, or to distributors. The use of another facility’s licenses however comes at a cost. CURRENTMODEL FUTUREMODEL Moving forward, as a means to reduce product costs as we scale, we will acquire our own wholesale license in order to sell to distributors and retailers. The online model will evolve by finding trusted online retail partners who will be able to fulfill the direct to consumer aspect of our business. ONLINE RETAIL DISTRIBUTOR MULTI-CHANNEL DISTRIBUTION allows for swift and comprehensive market penetration. WHOLESALE LICENSE
