Out with the old and in with the new wine.co.za

1493 views comments
You may have noticed something a little different about the site this morning.

Over hurried sips of your first cuppa, you may have glanced briefly at your PC/tablet/phone screen and thought “Cor blimey, wine.co.za’s changed a bit”.

And you would be right.

After months of planning, building (and breaking), and endless streams of data capturing and tears in the biscuit jar, we have launched our new-look site. *queue fireworks*

Like a pageant contestant, allow the new website to flaunt itself across your screen displaying her new sleek lines. Notice that we have seriously de-cluttered. The Home page is neat and concise showing you a glimpse of what you can find amongst our pages.

Images are bigger, better and of a higher standard.

Click on wines and a particular bottle and the tasting notes are laid out to be read with ease.

News makes me sing, but then I am biased.

Need to find a winery? We’ve got them listed and looking pretty damn sexy.

Photo albums & Videos can be linked to wineries now too, as well as Diary entries and more.
Our Diary shows the best of what is on in the winelands, and using our new Google Maps facility – makes it really easy to find wineries, restaurants, accommodation, tastings and more, in and around your area.

Here's what our Web Developer and Director, Kevin Kidson, has to say about the new site:
"The new wine.co.za has been developed from the ground up. It is based on the latest  technologies, it is fully SEO efficient, it uses the new wizzy HTML5 standard and is designed to drive more traffic to your information, and to heighten the presence of South African wine. We hope to engage more tourists and wine lovers and continue to be the GO TO site for everything to do with South African wine and the winelands."

So spend a bit of time this morning getting to know us again. If you have any questions or suggestions, then please do let us know.

Where is Walker Bay???

Sorry guys, but I am getting the feeling this is a totally biased site, with only paying customers being referenced. If this is really your philosophy, that is fine, but do not pretend to represent South African wineries on a whole, but say honestly this is an advertising format for wine and wineries. The new website looks brilliant on the other hand. Jennifer Packard Weber Director Springfontein Wine Estate
Walker Bay

Our areas are based on registered wine routes - when Walker Bay puts together a wine route and joins the association of wine routes, you will be added. We do appreciate that this is a bit limiting, but we have to base our areas on some official list and these areas are for wine tourism, so the routes makes most sense for us.
