Fresh Vine Wine Q1 2023 Early Start

Distributor Depletions Up 58% From Year Ago Quarter

Significant Growth in Retail Sales Expected to Jump Start Revenue Growth

Over 2,000 New Points-of-Distribution Added

New Retailers Added in California, Texas and New England

MINNEAPOLIS, April 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fresh Vine Wine, Inc. (NYSE American: VINE), the premier producer of premium lower carb, lower sugar, and lower calorie wines in the United States, today reported that distributor depletions in the first quarter of 2023 improved by 58% from the same year ago quarter. In the first quarter of 2023, Fresh Vine added 2,037 new Points-of-Distribution, increasing its footprint by almost a third.

Rick Nechio, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Fresh Vine Wine, said, “The new year is off to a great start, led by a significant expansion and growing momentum in the retail channel. In the first quarter of 2023, this strong momentum led to a 58% improvement in distributor depletions* to replenish the approximately 8,000 cases of wine that consumers pulled off retail shelves in the first quarter. Based on Nielsen Scan Data**, retailer sales of Fresh Vine Wine in the 52 weeks ending 2/13/2023 have increased 4-fold from the comparable year ago period, or an increase of 40,874 bottles scanned at retailer registers.”

Nechio continued, “We are focused on driving sales at Retail as the key to our growth. To this end, I am excited to share that two regional grocery chains, located in California and in New England, have recently been added to our growing list of retail partners. We also added more stores in Texas, which is the second largest wine market in the country. Together, these new retail partners will increase our product availability by nearly 500 new stores. Later this year we’ll be announcing a new partnership that we expect will expand our availability from the land to the sea with a cruise line.”

Nechio concluded, “We are experiencing strong momentum at retail as we improved the synergies across our wholesale, retail and related sales channels, especially at physical locations and with our omnichannel partners that offer same day delivery. The exciting progress achieved in retail so far this year – a near one-third increase in our Points-of-Distribution, a 4-fold increase in retailer sales, the addition of almost 500 new retail locations – are further evidence that our strategy is gaining momentum. This broad success is expected to result in revenue growth for Fresh Vine Wine in the upcoming quarters as we expect both wholesalers and retailers to place new orders in the coming months to replenish their depleting inventories.

Note: Distributor depletion reflects the number of cases that are sold to retailers by our distributors. Distributor depletion and retailer sales do not represent revenue to Fresh Vine Wine. Fresh Vine Wine recognizes revenue from sales shipment to distributors when wine leaves the Fresh Vine Wine warehouse in distributor trucks. We track distributor sales by their depletion to the market, and retailer sales through Nielsen Scan Data and retailer reports.
