WHO IS CAROLINE VAN SCHALKWYK?
We want to help your business by creating a demand for your product that leads to increased sales and profit margin on the bottom line.
After identifying a gap in the market, I started CVS Communications in 2017. My primary goal was to bridge the gap between the media, trade and the farm and to offer a marketing solution that comes from the perspective of the winery. I have been involved in building brands, and selling wine for over 15 years and bring with me a passion for people and relationship building within the industry. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working and learning from the supermarket and retail buyers, restaurant and hotel trade, as well as wine and lifestyle media and digital influencers. My university degree in English, Media and Writing, coupled with two UCT courses in Marketing and PR have taught me to offer a professional and bespoke approach to each opportunity. I have a very solid foundation in wine, and enjoy sharing my knowledge and helping people on their own wine journey.
I delight in building brands and motivating others to love the brands that I work with.
I have had the opportunity to taste wine from all over the world, but my go to glass is definitely bubbles – Cap Classique being my favourite spoil.
Spare Time? Spoiling my family, running with my dog Pyatches and enjoying a glass of bubbles.
