Windows on Pairings is a dedicated, multi-use facility that is located on the campus of the future home of Pairings, Ohio's Wine and Culinary Experience. This initial building can be renovated, opened and operational very quickly. It will be a launch pad for wine tourism and is designed to offer key elements of the larger Pairings vision, such as educational, agricultural, wine and culinary pursuits. The Windows on Pairings facility will allow the committee to develop its brand, gauge sales, build foot traffic and perfect the concierge, special event services and educational cooking experiences. In addition to a distinctive food menu, we’ll incorporate retail sales by offering a gift shop, memberships and Ohio wine sales by the bottle, glass or flight. Local visitors and out of town tourists alike can't help but be engaged and educated on this region's geography, culture and science on why it continues to be so successful with grape production. The construction phases of the larger Pairings campus and its goals will be displayed for all to see, building buy-in and community support.
The Windows on Pairings facility will establish a grass roots campaign, both locally and nationally, to “donate to the future of Pairings.” Once fully-operational, the building will also allow the Committee to establish historical financial data, document class attendance, evaluate concierge services, analyze use data and accurately predict retail revenue. When this information is combined with the Committees' grant and philanthropic efforts, a successful financial performance history will begin to emerge that will justify the need for the expanded facilities.
