Tank Garage Winery was looking for a reliable partner that could provide consistent product photography, in addition to innovative solutions. Outshinery provided the perfect solution. With their help, Tank Garage Winery has achieved a streamlined approach to product photography and has saved hundreds of hours each year.

Background context

Tank Garage Winery is far from your typical Napa winery. With a rebellious spirit and a boundless passion for innovation, it has boldly carved a distinctive path in the realm of winemaking.

Embracing the unconventional, Tank Garage Winery crafts exceptional blends that push the boundaries of traditional winemaking practices. Guided by a unique brand, it specializes in small-lot red, white, and natural wines, along with rosé, orange wine, and sparkling pét-nat—all showcased within the charming ambiance of a vintage Napa Valley gas station.

General Manager Ed Feuchuk expresses his admiration for Outshinery's ability to capture this vibrant essence, delivering assets that effectively introduce remarkable wines to an even wider audience.

It started with a time-consuming photo problem

As anyone in product marketing can testify, producing visual assets for a large number of SKUs can be a daunting task. But for Tank Garage Winery, a producer of dozens of unique wines each year, it's an absolute necessity. With so many products to showcase online, getting the right images is critical in capturing the attention of potential buyers.

Not only did the marketing team need to maintain a tight calendar, but they also sometimes needed to showcase products before they were physically available to be photographed — to build excitement pre-release and introduce the new wines to customers, media partners, and reviewers.

Tank Garage Winery also needed digital images that could be deployed across various marketing platforms, including social media and its ecommerce store. Tank Garage Winery drives more sales and stands out in a crowded market, and they do this by reaching people with their unique offerings on time.

The pitfalls of opting for the Do-It-Yourself approach

Running a winery like Tank Garage Winery, it's critical to have an eye-catching, professional visual identity to showcase products to potential and loyal customers. While it was tempting to handle marketing photography in-house, doing so could prove to be a risky move for an innovative company with a vibrant reputation like Tank Garage Winery. The team wanted to leave nothing to chance. This brand couldn’t afford to lose its competitive edge and recognizable style by cutting corners on its brand presentation.

Why Ed decided to give Outshinery a try

Ed Feuchuk is a marketer with over 15 years of experience building DTC wine brands. He says dreaming up 25 new wines each year for Tank Garage Winery may sound like a nightmare, but creating our product photography was equally challenging. Traditional studio shoots with lengthy timelines didn't jive with his renegade business model, but Outshinery's digital artists get it.

Our first Outshinery shot was mesmerizing and unforgettable. I remain skeptical that they are not sorcerers!

Considerations for switching to digital imagery

As the world continues to shift digital, brands need to consider how their marketing strategy fits into this landscape. Tank Garge Winery realized that impressive brands such as Apple, Nike, and IKEA have embraced digital collateral long ago to capture dynamic and versatile content that can be easily shared across multiple platforms.

Tank Garage Winery was ready to increase brand recognition and double down on an engaging and immersive experience for its customer base. It was time to flip the switch to digital imagery, and showcase new releases in the most visually appealing and impactful way, ultimately leading to increased engagement and sales.
