The winning winery will receive both the completed new design and the ecommerce website, and free hosting and maintenance services for one year from launch date...The website will be designed and built by Sonoma State student teams during the 2010 Spring semester, under the guidance and tutelage of Sonoma State faculty and eWinery Solutions management.
Apply here. Note: your winery must be located in Sonoma County.
You may want to read the rest of the rules before throwing your name in the hat. Technically, you're nominating yourself to be in the running for a new site, which is perfectly fine. As I write this, there are already six nominated wineries.
I guess someone forgot to include me (recognized authority on winery Web sites) on the announcement. I had to find out from Wine Industry Insight this morning. Some days, I'm just not feeling the love. <grumble>
Seriously, I look forward to seeing the results. Maybe they'll ask me to judge. <grin>
Smart marketing on the part of Richard Kline to get the SSU wine program's tacit endorsement of his product.
