English Small winemaking regions worldwide face intense competition from global brands; as such, their challenge is to promote brands that tell the unique story of the collectivity of regional wineries in order to achieve a favorable reputation for the regional product. This paper introduces a method to audit the communication of regional wine brands, drawing upon branding and corporate identity literature. The proposed audit has several objectives: providing a picture of the communicated brand’s personality; checking gaps between intentions—that is, what winemakers want to communicate—and projections—that is, what formal communications actually project; delineating the potential target that communications address; checking the consistency of communications; and evaluating the expressiveness of wineries in communicating the regional wine brand. The paper further illustrates the audit using the case of the Swiss wine Merlot Ticino.
