Fever was appointed following a six-way competitive pitch, in which the agency presented a campaign strategy including event sponsorships, experiential samplings and a revamped paid social strategy incorporating targeted content creation and influencer collaborations.
The campaign is being rolled out throughout the year alongside Black Tower's in-house PR team in Germany. According to the agency, Black Tower is the country's top-selling wine brand. It was established in 1967.
Fever MD Bruce McLachlan said PR in the wine drinking sector is typically quite traditional, meaning there is an "opportunity for Black Tower to stand apart from its immediate competitors".
"Word-of-mouth is critical to brand preference in [the younger wine drinking demographic], so we'll be developing and delivering a campaign with social at its heart that has something honest to say and matches the brand to their behaviours," he said.
The agency's clients include Sky, Logitech, Now TV and PlayStation.
