The list of direct-to-consumer (DTC) services continues to grow with Out of The Box—a new St. Helena-based wine-shipping provider that opened shop this month, according to the Napa Valley Register.
The company, located near the Napa Valley Wine Warehouse, says it focuses on wine club and daily shipping, among other services, such as rush orders, gift cards, and custom packing.
“We brought on a team of wine industry veterans so we can support different types of wineries, but primarily small- and medium-sized DTC teams that need a little more support,” said April Damron, a partner with Out of The Box.
Despite the much anticipated return of wine tourism to Napa, and all wine countries, the ever-growing DTC trend can’t be denied, said Out of the Box’s shipping and client supervisor, Keynan Burnett, at the May 1 grand opening of the business.
“I just got a call from a client who wants to ship something overnight to somebody for their birthday,” he said. “We can make it happen.”
