Pitch

While touring the world with the incredible classic rock band Bad Company, I discovered my passion for fine wine, exquisite food, and the captivating culture that envelops it all. Today, I’m here to share my incredible experiences of wine, food, music, and travel with each and every one of you through Paul Cullen Wines. Prepare to embark on an extraordinary journey!

It took many years of hard work to get into a band like Bad Company. I’m a big believer that luck meets preparation. I got the job after playing 2 songs and drinking 2 planks of English beer. Because of my hard work and passion and being a good person, I can be on that level of being a rockstar.

Today, I watch myself playing on Youtube in front of 20,000 people and think, “Damn, I was good.” Even now, I’m amazed by how good I was.

No matter what I do, if I work really hard at it and am passionate about it, I’m going to be successful. Now it’s not about playing bass; it’s about cooking for people, wine, and traveling. Last year, I cooked 220 events in people’s homes. In the wine world, I’m a WSET Level 2 Sommelier. No matter what I do, I strive for excellence and recognition. I feel like I’m back where I was; I was so high, and I feel like I’m right there again.

  1. Increase the states we do business in: We currently have the infrastructure to sell in Delaware, Maryland, and DC. In the next year, we plan to go from 3 states to 6 states, expanding to New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut next.
  2. Increase points of distribution from 56 to 200-250+: We plan to 5x our distribution points in the next year with funding to support an administrative staff member, freeing up Paul’s time to do what he does best: talking to people, building community, and promoting his wines.
  3. Marketing / National recognition: We plan to hire a PR and marketing company to get Paul Cullen Wines national press coverage in Wine Spectator, Food & Wine, Wine Enthusiast, and other publications our customers read. We may also buy ads in these magazines to send customers to buy our wines online.

Though we currently sell in 3 states and plan to expand to more, our biggest vehicle is online sales. We have the infrastructure to ship to 40 states, and we’re ready to expand as soon as we have the funding to turn on our digital marketing capabilities.
