In the last two posts
relating to the subject of wine, I mentioned the design of wine labels and
packaging and corks. In this post,
I will draw inspiration through some well-designed winery websites in the wine
I like the font, colours, and simplicity of this website. It showcases the wine elegantly.
I like the use of a background photograph.
Da Vinci: http://www.davinciwine.com
I really like the old-fashioned feel of this website.
JAQK Cellars: http://jaqkcellars.com/
Red Bicyclette Wines: http://www.redbicyclette.com/
The footer illustration and bright colours make this a fun site.
Arcadia Fine Wines: http://www.arcadiafinewine.com/
Bonny Doon Vineyard: https://www.bonnydoonvineyard.com/
An organic and sketchy design makes this website stand out, though I found it difficult to use.
Little Penguin Wine: http://www.thelittlepenguin.com/
The animated penguin adds to the website, but the font and colours remind me a little bit of children's books.
Toasted Head Wines: http://www.toastedhead.com/
Vertu Vin: http://www.vertuvin.com/
Frog's Leap Winery: http://www.frogsleap.com/
I love the illustrations, but this doesn't really strike me as a wine website and lacks branding.
Dog House Wine: http://www.doghousewine.com/
I love the illustrations, particularly in the footer. Well-branded with its cute style, this website and brand successfully stands out.
Domaine Carneros: http://www.domainecarneros.com
Tranquility Bay Wines
I like the colours used. Olive, cream, and pale blue give this a sophisticated feel.
Sibling Rivalry Wines: http://www.siblingrivalrywine.ca/
I love the fonts, illustrations, and the overall 'sketchy' feeling of this website. It feels modern.
Wines of Substance: http://winesofsubstance.com/
An interactive website using the periodic table for the branding. A creative idea.
McIvor Estate: http://www.mcivorestate.com.au
I love the use of black and white verses colour in the imagery.
Cor Cellars: http://www.corcellars.com
1 Wine Dude: http://www.1winedude.com
I really like the header of this wine 'blog'.
Domaine Chandon Wine: http://www.chandon.com/
This website has excellent photos, and I like the classic style and colours used.
Folie a Deux Winery: http://www.folieadeux.com/
I like the illustrations and the colours. I think that the header is particularly good.
Hunters of Marlborough: http://www.hunters.co.nz/
The presentation of the content and the use of font makes this website stand out, but there's some problems with the header on different browser sizes.
Jax Vineyards: http://jaxvineyards.com/
A simple website with an excellent product photograph.
Fat Bastard Wines: http://www.fatbastard.com/
I like the use of circles; this makes this website stand out against traditional layouts.
