Praise from a seasoned brand ambassador who is new to our team
“I’ve been a brand ambassador for 10 years, and during that time I have never encountered a company like Professional Pours. From my first interaction with them, I knew their company was different. They truly take pride in the brands they represent and make sure their brand ambassadors are well trained before sending them out into the field. While other demo companies simply send you to a brand’s website, the owners at Professional Pours take the time to create educational videos complete with knowledge checks, to make sure you’ve retained the information and are able to speak intelligently about the brand/product! Their booking, reporting, and invoicing processes are also highly streamlined and efficient – making it an absolute pleasure to work for them! When you work for Professional Pours you will feel good knowing you are representing the most well-respected company in the business – I know I do!” Danielle Biaz
Kind words from satisfied clients
“As always you have a wonderful team who exceed industry standards.”
Michael Losselyoung, Prestige Wine & Spirits
“St. Killian Importing Company uses a lot of sampling companies for our beers that we import and I can assure you that Professional Pours is one of the best. They have been sampling Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger beers for us at Kroger in the MI market and sales have continued to climb after the samplings. Professional Pours handles everything from start to finish – the recaps are worth the investment. Kim Adams makes the process so easy that if you aren’t using Professional Pours then you should.
A VERY satisfied customer.”

“From what I’ve seen and heard from other companies, your staff is the best. They’re trained to sell. You’re always asking for coupons and background information to support the products. You’ve got education, local involvement by management and support materials and it ends up being a positive experience.
“It’s because you’re local. With the national companies, if someone doesn’t show up, the market manager in Chicago will apologize profusely and say they’ll do this one and another at no charge. But the store brought the product in and all of sudden there’s a stack of wine over here and no one to sell it.
“Working with Karen Bloomer at Kroger and Professional Pours has been basically a delight.
Vincent Falzone, CSW

“Tastings by Professional Pours are effective. Their staff is professional, punctual and knowledgeable. Feedback from store managers is excellent.”
Midwest Sales Manager
“I want a pouring company to sell, and that’s what I get from Professional Pours. Their servers reach out to people passing by and invite them to sample. Their staff know and like wine and share their enthusiasm with our customers. I couldn’t be more pleased with their service.”
