  3. 3. Methodology The American and French surveys were simultaneously conducted from December 1st to December 31st, 2011. They were hosted online and sent via email to more than 8,000 wineries in all wine regions in the US and in France. The American survey was conducted in English and the French survey in French. A total 285 American wineries and 243 French wineries participated in the survey.

  4. 4. SummarySocial Media Marketing has permeated practically every existing business, and the wineindustry is no exception. In December 2011, ABLE, a New York based digital marketing agencyspecialized in the food and the wine industry, conducted online surveys to compare how two keyindustry hubs – the United States and France – are embracing new technology. In addition tocomparing American and French wineries’ online presence, the study evaluated the benefits of theirsocial media marketing.While 94% of American wineries surveyed are on Facebook, only 53% of French wineries areembracing this popular social network; trends are similar on Twitter and YouTube.American wineries, meanwhile, are active online and it is paying off. Nearly all of them say theybenefit from using Facebook (most say the same about Twitter). 47% of US wineries say Facebookhelps them generate sales (compared to 9% of French wineries). It is also important to note that72% of American wineries sell wine on their website, compared to just 36% of French wineries.In the US, Facebook seems to be a superior social media platform for generating sales (48% forFacebook; 28% for Twitter). Twitter, on the other hand, seems better at capturing media attention(53% for Twitter; 32% for Facebook). Both tools appear to be efficient in engaging with customersand driving people to the winery.In 2012, most French and American wineries plan to increase their activity on Facebook and otherplatforms, making this THE year of social media for the wine industry. 4
