Wine and Champagne are wonderful drinks that can also be profitable businesses. Here are five simple ideas that can help you turn your passion for the grape into a new revenue stream.

Export and Distribute Wines
This can be a great career for enthusiasts of the grape. Wherever you are in the world there are other wine lovers just like you in need of new bottles of their favorite wines, and to be introduced to labels they do not know yet.

Transporting cases and bottles to bars, restaurants, and private buyers can be very lucrative as well as a lot of fun. You will need to make sure you are adequately insured to cover the costs of any damages or loss. But how much does insurance cost for a startup business like this?

Work as a Wine Consultant
If you do not fancy lifting and carrying cases of fine wines, perhaps you can become a wine consultant. Businesses like restaurants and bars, as well as independent wine merchants, are always on the lookout for new wines to add to their inventory.

Knowing your grapes, labels, and how to complement dishes with fine wine can be a valuable skill. Advising merchants and restaurant owners on the best bottles to buy and sell is a great side hustle but can quickly be developed into a full-time occupation.

Become an Influencer
Do you have some social media skills? You can turn your love of wine into a serious social media side hustle and become a wine influencer. This is great as a part-time gig, and you will quickly receive offers and freebies from the major producers and merchants if you build a consistent following.

Turn likes and shares into pennies and dollars. The opportunities that social media creates are quite astonishing. Having a follower count of just a few hundred can get you lots of free products to market but turn that into a few thousand followers and you can command regular endorsement fees.

Open Your Own Wine Bar or Emporium
The simplest way to share your enthusiasm for a product is to sell it. Opening a wine bar or store is a quick and easy way to join in the fun and start a small business based on something you love: wine. It is easier than you think to do, and the right location for a bar or wine emporium can help you to create a bustling and profitable business. Like any business, you should research the market first to make sure there is a demand in place for you to supply. One important aspect to consider is registering your business and finding the right registered agent services for companies to ensure you are in compliance with the law.

Share Your Knowledge
The biggest barrier between people and a love of wine is a lack of knowledge. Sharing what you have learned is a highly marketable skill. You can host wine nights in homes or wine bars, or in stores, and help people to learn more about the glorious grape and everything it has to offer.

Any one of these business ideas can help discover profit, and new wines to enjoy. You can combine a few of these into one lucrative side hustle, or go all in and open your own bar, store, or distribution business.
