Last fall we tapped our passionate Facebook community of fans to come up with a name for a new wine in our portfolio. They (you!) met the challenge with 150 names - exceptional names, it was hard to choose a winner. Our contest judge Guy Kawasaki of Alltop.com picked five finalists - and the winner is Persuasion.
Persuasion. The brash, carefree offspring of artisan winery Olson Ogden Wines. Born to be indulged - a blend of reckless abandon and practical accessibility. We hope you find it as persuasive as it is enjoyable.
Thanks to our winner Paula Warren for coming up with the name. Coincidentally, Paula and I were high school classmates. Go DJO! Paula's name is on Persuasion's wine label. Special thanks to Susan Bond, Les Tsoporific, George Roletter - who submitted the names that made the final cut.
Persuasion is a special occasion red table wine at an everyday price point. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list to hear more about the wine and where to buy it.
