Packaged with personalized labels, wine sold by Sanford and Annalisa French's company comes from vineyards in California and cellars in Europe.
While it is illegal to ship wine directly to consumers in 39 states, Redondo Beach, California-based The Connoisseur has established a network of franchises and distributors that, like florists, can take orders from other stores and deliver wine and other gifts within 48 hours.
The Connoisseur currently operates retail stores within upscale strip malls. These stores feature premium wines and champagnes with personalized messages printed on each label, packed in handsome wooden gift boxes. In addition to the wines under The Connoisseur label an extensive collection of "top-of-the-line" brand wines are also offered.
Where permitted by law, the franchised stores also include a tasting area where wine tastings are offered and wine education and classes can be conducted.
The Connoisseur will train franchisees and key personnel in all phases of operating the business. In addition, each franchisee will receive an operating manual covering all the details of daily business.
