How we work

With honesty,
& dedication

You wake up with the sun each day to pour your heart and soul into a dream. To produce your life’s work, carry on your family’s heritage. To embrace art, and science. To share your story, and make the world a little more beautiful.
Funny, it’s not that much different from what we do.

Our Process

At 5forests, we understand that you can’t be an expert at everything. We work hard, listen well, & adapt to what your business needs. Just like you, we would never put our name on something that we felt was not the best were capable of. Reach out anytime. We’re always here to help.

Listen &

We’ll get to know you. And we want you to get to know us, too.
Before we get to work, we’ll take the time to understand you, your wine biz, your competition, and most importantly, your customers. And we’ll be honest. If we aren’t the right team for your project, we’ll tell you so.

Discovery & Strategy

We’re going to research the bejeezus out of your winery — and your competition. And then we’ll use all that knowledge to lay out a plan of action. We’ll assess goals, gather data, find opportunities. And because we only work with wine biz, we’ll draw on niche skills to create a strategy that produces results.


Where the rubber meets the road. This is when we hunker down at our desks and use big words like user experience, interaction design, visual design, content and asset development, social media management, mobile design and development, SEO optimization. Fortunately, we do all that hard stuff for you, so you can care for the vines.

Launch &

No lie, it’s like giving birth. Every project is unique and we work our butts off to make sure that your launch is a success. But, let’s face it, the weeks ahead are what count. We don’t handover and disappear. We nurture, build, adapt your marketing for consistent results.

Adaptation &

Maybe Instagram has launched a new service, or Google is cracking down on annoying pop-ups. Maybe tech advances mean we can create a more immersive customer experience. Or data shows us that we can increase audience engagement.
This is the 5forests difference: when we see that something isn’t working, or can be improved, we’ll let you know. And because it won’t cost you anything extra, you’ll say, “Go for it!” Crisis-free digital marketing ftw!
