Posted by Mark Angelillo, Jun 29, 2008.

Does anyone know any great winery websites? I've seen some very poor ones!

Hmmm ... which ones have you seen that you dislike? I tend to find most very 'basic'. Although, I do find the Kendal Jackson Family Winery websites decent. Two examples:

http://www.lacrema.com
http://www.hartfordwines.com

Very similar look and feel.

However, thinking about it I find these adequate but not very thought would make them better.

They do have a similar feel to them. The Hartford Wines shopping cart doesn't seem to be very well done, but all of the information on both sites is plainly laid out and pretty easy to find.

I think the most important parts of a winery website are the contact page and the product pages. If those are easy to find I think they've done a good job. Both La Crema and Hartford Wines have those two pieces in place.

But maybe there's something a winery can do to make a GREAT website, and not simply a good one... I'll know that when I see it, maybe?

While I usually can't stand flash websites, Frog's Leap is worth checking out:

After the site loads and you have your fun catching flies with the animated frog, the site brings you to a virtual town with a farmer named Oscar...relatively fun and seemingly kid-friendly compared to most wine sites...maybe they're just trying to appeal to the inner-child in all of us...?
