Agency Selected to Spearhead Consumer Media Relations Campaign for Leading Internet Wine Service

NEW YORK - June 13, 2007 - MWW Group (www.mww.com), one of the nation’s top ten public relations firms, today announced the addition of MyWinesDirect.com, a leading online retailer of wines from small, limited production wineries, to its client roster. MyWinesDirect.com only offers hidden gems that are not nationally distributed. All wines on the site are selected by experts and approved by consumer tasting panels. For convenient shopping and gift giving, MyWinesDirect.com offers pre-selected packs of six and 12 bottles. The company currently delivers to 28 states and differentiates itself from competitors by offering complimentary shipping.

MWW Group will work with MyWinesDirect.com to expand brand recognition among its consumer audiences. Activities will include a media relations campaign targeted at lifestyle, general interest, news, travel and epicurean publications. Additionally, MWW Group will work closely with MyWinesDirect.com in the next few months to develop and execute interactive online campaigns.

“We’re very excited to partner with MWW Group. The popularity of online wine shopping is rapidly growing as states expand and consumers experience the benefits of delivery,” said Bryan Dougherty, president and CEO of MyWinesDirect.com. “Not everyone wants to be a wine expert, but everyone wants to drink great wine at good prices, and MWW Group’s understanding of that concept makes them an ideal choice for MyWinesDirect.com.”

“We look forward to helping MyWinesDirect.com achieve increased brand recognition,” stated Michael W. Kempner, president and CEO of MWW Group. “Our expertise working with leading e-commerce based businesses will benefit MyWinesDirect.com and ultimately impact its bottom line.”
