Built on Powerful Platforms
Our winery websites are built on WordPress and Squarespace content management systems, allowing for easy editing and reliable tech support.
All winery websites automatically resize themselves for optimal viewing on every screen size. Gone are the days of illegible text and cut-off images.
Custom Modern Design
Our sites express the unique characteristics of your winery, vineyard and culture by putting images, video and creative media front and center. You won’t find cheesy templates here.
Easy On The Wallet
Let’s face it…you spend enough money just making excellent wine, let alone actually selling it. We’ve kept this in mind when developing our affordable services.
Our websites integrate with your chosen e-commerce solution (Orderport, Squarespace, Vinespring, Shopify, WooCommerce, Nexternal, etc.) for easy online wine sales.
Ongoing Updates & Support
We offer reliable ongoing tech support for your winery website, including security upgrades, uptime monitoring and data backups.

Why are you more affordable than other website developers?
We are a small, nimble company with low overhead costs. Websites are built on top of well supported code structure, meaning you don’t pay for the extra development time to start from scratch.
What defines a ‘page’?
Pages each have their own specific URL (winery.com/about, winery.com/club). Separate sections of your website that have their own images, text content and design elements constitute these pages, and usually consist of the Home Page, About, News, Events, Wine Club, Vineyards, Winemaking, Contact, etc. Most wineries will not be in danger of going over the number of pages provided in our website build packages. We encourage consolidation of your content onto fewer pages to make it as easy as possible for viewers to find your information. Basic text-only information pages like policy pages don’t count towards the page count. The online store and associated product pages also don’t count towards the page count.
Do you do Graphic Design?
We have extensive Adobe Creative Cloud experience and do all image management, alterations and optimizations in-house and as part of the design process. Sourcing of images, icons, etc., are all included as part of the design process. However, custom illustrations and drawings may need to be sourced from a dedicated graphic designer. Vinbound has several affiliate designers, but ultimately you may choose whomever you prefer.
What Tech Support is Provided?
All websites are given guaranteed, unlimited tech support through the first month after launch. Following this period, we have a $50/month basic tech support which covers everything you will need for continual upgrades, security and support of your site. This service is highly recommended for WordPress customers, which is more vulnerable to cyber attacks and server-related outages than Squarespace. Tech Support is also included as a basic tenet of our Retainer plan.
What if I need just one landing page rather than a full build?
There are many reasons to do one-page sites, most often related to a winery that is under construction and lacking photographs to flesh out a full site. In these circumstances, we will create a payment plan that allows for a one-page coming-soon page now followed by a full build later down the road.
When is Payment due?
1/3 is due at the start of the project, and the remainder upon completion and launch of your new website.
Why is WordPress more expensive?
WordPress powers 25% of all websites on the internet (including this one). From a development standpoint, it simply takes more time to create WordPress websites. However, this extra development time means a much more customizable interface than SquareSpace and support of some eye-popping media like background videos and complex reservation systems. It can handle more sophisticated websites and is absolutely recommended for larger websites. The $5000 price includes up to 12 pages, as opposed to 6 pages for Squarespace (extra pages available for $200 each on both platforms).
What about Domain Names and Hosting?
We will help you secure and renew your domain name as well as manage your website hosting. However, fees for domain name management and hosting are separate from Vinbound and paid directly to the hosting provider. Estimated costs are:
What is the design timeline?
This depends on our current workload and the size of your project. Once you have provided all of the assets needed (photos, text, etc.), we aim to have your SquareSpace site ready to launch in 2-4 weeks. WordPress sites take longer, typically 6-12 weeks depending on size.
