AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 5, 2012) - Austin Wine and Cider of Austin, Texas has selected local marketing and advertising firm, Rock Candy Media, as their agency of record to help brand and launch the new Austin company's website and logo.
Austin Wine and Cider (AW&C) was founded by Mike Allgeier of South Austin Brewing Company fame. Allgeier is a service-disabled veteran and has been brewing and producing beer, wine and cider for over 10 years. "The idea started with this passion to have an easy-to-make recipe and naturally progressed into unique blends with interesting ingredients. As our business grows, we'll be supporting not only Austin, but Texas residents as well. We are very grateful for the people that will be supplying the Texas-sourced ingredients and for all those lending their support."
Located in the heart of South Austin, AW&C will be one of a few producing hard cider and specialty wines in Texas. Austin Wine and Cider "will set themselves apart with packaging in 12 oz cans -- the only Texas cider doing this -- and will attract customers with competitive pricing on a local and national level," says Rock Candy Media Founder Annie Liao Jones. "This will, in turn, produce a more eco-friendly product and Austin is a natural home base for this demographic."
Construction for Austin Wine & Cider is under way at 415 East St. Elmo Rd, 4B. Electrical clean-up work is finishing up, construction on the front facade and final engineer-stamped blueprints will be ready in the coming weeks. More information can be found at www.austinwineandcider.com.
