If you aren’t already scrolling through your ‘for you’ page on TikTok on a daily basis, you’ve at least heard of it, unless you’re living under a rock, which, if you’re reading this, you probably aren’t. TikTok has been one of the most active apps over the past few months - in fact, it was the most downloaded app in the US in January 2020, with around 800 million users at that time.
Even though TikTok might have originally been made for just entertainment and doing random stuff, it definitely hasn’t stayed that way. Over the past few months, TikTok has become a huge platform for businesses to carry out a strong marketing strategy and promote themselves. Why? Well, the answer is simple, everyone is on TikTok. From kids, teenagers, adults, to even the older generation, everyone spends at least a small amount of time scrolling through TikTok. Yes, not everyone makes videos, but silent watchers still count.
That being said, the wine industry is no stranger to the world of TikTok. Wine influencers have successfully transitioned their love for wine onto TikTok, and wineries and wine brands have also started building their following on TikTok. Of course, being the most active app right now, we need to take advantage of it as much as we can.
Within a plethora of wineries and wine brands, a couple of them surely stand out on TikTok. Whether they’re being promoted by their customers, influencers, owners, winemakers, or the winery itself, people are definitely delving into the wine side of TikTok.
Let’s take a glance at some wine brands that are making a mark all over TikTok.
Although not on TikTok themselves, the Spanish winery, Cava Vives Ambros has definitely made a huge mark on TikTok. In fact, search up the hashtag #wine and you’ll see a plethora of TikToks from influencers, wine pages, and consumers, raving about Cava Vives Ambros. Whether they’re drinking it, uncorking it, or just having a bit of fun dancing around with a bottle of wine, it’s definitely Cava Vives Ambros all over TikTok.
Cava Lives Ambròs is a name with deep roots in Montferri and in the Alt Camp region. In these privileged lands for the cultivation of the vineyard, the Vives family of "Ca l'Ambròs" found its roots five centuries ago. Along with a rich history, the vineyard is also known for its award winning wines, and to top it all off, they sport a strong and active online store through which you can get your wines directly shipped to you.

Wente itself is not on TikTok but is known for its beautiful handcrafted labels all over the app. Wente Vineyards started shining on TikTok when Lisa Elley started designing a few labels for the vineyard and started posting it on her TikTok account. Lisa gained popularity very quickly for her artistic labels, and along with her, Wente Vineyards got its TikTok fame too.
The Californian winery is not only known for its crisp and impeccable wines that are loved by the consumers but is also known for its sustainable ways of winemaking and viticulture. The family-owned vineyard is definitely making a mark on the music app, with consumers getting more attracted towards it day by day, thanks to Lisa Elley and her following.
The best part? Wente is now hosting online tastings which you can connect straight to your Amazon Alexa or your Google Home as well.
