ABOUT WINELA
wineLA is about enhancing the wine culture of Los Angeles. To do so, wine must be in rhythm with fashion, music, food and other beverages.  It must take advantage of the geography, the architecture and the centers of interest. Los Angeles is a giant playground with an amazing array of venues, spaces, wine bars, restaurants, beaches, roof tops, gardens, and magical views. We want to be a part of the LA lifestyle, the wine lifestyle, and celebrate the people, the place and the passion.

wineLA will promote significant events, occasional classes, and tastings of merit. This is phase two of what we started 20 years ago at LearnAboutWine.com - America’s first wine education website and first in wine event creation. LearnAboutWine will now evolve onto a digital platform; the transformation will take some time; so we will slowly rebrand our event efforts onto wineLA, reduce the number of activities we focus on, and elevate our efforts to focus on the next big thing… Doing what is best for the wine industry and the communities we serve.  Edicts:  innovate, evolve and excite.

We thank you for joining our newsletter, we will be sending fewer emails and packing them with amazing content. We want to be your wine content provider and would love to hear about your favorite places, your music, your locations - we want to be under the influence of what ignites your passion for Los Angeles.

DONNA VIEIRA, CMO OF CHASE CONSUMER BANKING - DIGITAL ADOPTION AND HOW TECHNOLOGY IS CHANGING THE BANKING INDUSTRY

U.S. CONSUMERS RELY ON MOBILE PHONE AS MOST PRIZED POSSESSION 

It’s no secret that mobile banking is the way of the future, and Americans are more attached to their cell phones than ever. A recent Chase survey found that people would rather lose their wedding ring (19%) or a family heirloom (18%) than their cell phone (32%). And to keep up with busy schedules, consumers are taking advantage of banking-on-the-go. Mobile phone users tap into their bank accounts via an app at work (51%), on a coffee or smoking break (35%) or while eating at a restaurant (31%). Consumers also want to feel more empowered to leave their wallets at home. Half of Americans (51%) have either lost or forgotten their card when they needed it,, prefer to pay using their phone vs. credit card or cash (48%) and plan to make payments with mobile phones more in the next five years (46%).

Donna Vieira, CMO of Chase Consumer Bank, wants to help us make the most of our mobile banking experience. She will discuss:

  • Results and key findings from a recent study on mobile banking and digital adoption
  • Advancements being developed for banking apps, including updated Chase QuickPay, which is featured nationally in a new TV commercial with NBA pro Steph Curry
  • Tips on how to get the most out of your banking app

ABOUT THE SURVEY
To uncover insights around digital banking knowledge and habits of Americans, Chase conducted a telephone and online survey. The telephone survey is among a nationally representative sample of 1,008 adults (18 years old and older) living in the continental United States.  The online survey is among a nationally representative sample of 1,500 adults (18 years old and older) living in the continental United States, with an oversample to obtain 200 respondents in the following cities: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, Columbus, Miami, and San Diego. The surveys were conducted between April 19th and April 26th with a margin of error of +/- 3 percent at the national level and +/-7 percent at the local market level with a 95% confidence level.
