Denise came to Tempora in 2016 with her vision to provide her winemaking consulting and clients with online educational resources. The membership website we created for her helps her clients ease the cellar chaos, make timely decisions, and use science to guide to advance their wine quality bar.
We built the DGWinemaking membership site using WordPress, WooCommerce, and WooCommerce Memberships for rapid deployment and cost-effectiveness. Denise had very specific ideas about how the site should look. It should be modern, yet old-world and without any of the cliche’s that so are so often found in the wine industry. You’ll find no grapes, purple or maroon on this website. What you will find is an ephemera style logo created using the Mayer Font and an antique corkscrew. The colors olive and peach are reminiscent of grape leaves and rosé wine.
DGWinemaking has now grown to become a portal for winemakers to tap into Denise’s extensive knowledge of winemaking. It offers subscriptions that allow members access to exclusive articles, webinars, Q&A summaries, and training videos. But, no worries, Denise offers up plenty of advice and direction in her free blog posts as well!
We recently created a second portal for Denise’s wine enthusiasts called, what else? Wine Lovers. The Wine Lovers website aims to make wine approachable, enjoyable, and fun, with virtual courses on how to choose, taste, and entertain with wine, complete with the “Sip & Swirl” newsletter and Facebook Group.
We continue to update and maintain the sites’ applications and backups as well as assist with minor content and configuration changes. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Denise!
