Brandy Bell, over at Donati Family Winery sent out the following message on Twitter:
hey #winos, what are you looking for in a winery website? what do you hate about some sites? gimme the dirt ;)Larry Chandler gave her these replies:
@DonatiFamily Love: Few clicks to buy wine + Flash-free. Hate: must register before knowing total cost + search 4 the buy button
@DonatiFamily Also: hate sound without asking. Love clear bottle images. Love brief descriptions with option for more.
Brandy thanked him, and asked another question:
@LarryTheWineGuy GREAT feedback, Larry! what about consumer education?
To which Larry replied:
All great advice, all aimed at improving visitor experience.
@DonatiFamily If educating consumers about your wines, terroir, and winemaking fine. Otherwise link to existing educational sites.
So, what do you love and hate about winery Web sites? Please leave a comment!
