BRIAN RICHARDSON
FOUNDER + LEAD DEVELOPER

Brian Richardson started Vinbound in 2014 to build websites for wineries he had befriended in Oregon’s Willamette Valley (Prior to starting Vinbound, Brian was Assistant Director of the International Pinot Noir Celebration). From day one, Brian has been the lead designer and developer of all Vinbound Marketing websites. He continues to be the first point of contact for new clients and leads overall strategy and vision for Vinbound and our partner wineries.

I truly love running Vinbound and getting to work with wineries both acclaimed and up-and-coming. My clients in the wine industry are creative, entrepreneurial and passionate about their craft, and it’s a pleasure to help these businesses reach and retain profitability with the aid of sophisticated digital marketing.

His unrivaled customer support and attentiveness exemplify his dedication and passion for what he does and ensured he met our business’s specific needs promptly.

Karin Warnelius-Miller, Alexander Valley Winegrowers

“Last week, we had a lovely couple visit us from Washington. They had done research on which wineries to visit and chose us. The design and the content of the website was their deciding factor. The husband, turns out, is a very high level executive with Microsoft. He raved about our website. He said it was one of the best winery websites he had ever seen!”
Keeler Estate Vineyard, Amity OR

“With Cadre being a start up, I knew I had to find a company that could deliver an impressive site in a short period of time all while being affordable.  Having 20 years of experience of bringing wine projects to life from scratch, I also knew that I needed to work with someone that knows nuances of the wine industry and how to apply those complexities to an effective website.  Brian checked all the boxes and seamlessly married technology and creativity in designing a fantastic digital home for Cadre.”
John Niven, Cadre Wines

“Brian Richardson has had a profound impact on our business by improving our e-commerce interface and SEO efficacy.  Working with Brian to redesign our website was one of the best uses of our marketing budget to date.  His expertise in web design specifically in the wine industry makes the process seamless, efficient and highly constructive. With very little input, Brian designed a visually stunning website with an elegant online store solution that has dramatically improved our online sales.  Brian made several recommendations that took our website to the next level and improved our visitors’ experience when discovering us online.  We are thrilled with Brian’s work and highly recommend Vinbound Marketing to anyone looking to improve their online presence.”
Dave & Stacey Gollnick, Mindego Ridge Winery

“Vinbound was able to quickly with almost no modification design my branding and website to look infinitely better than what I had previously: it is beautiful, clean, and highly usable.”

Boosting Sales at Remarkable Wineries with WineryHunt

Vinbound Marketing launched our side business WineryHunt Oregon in 2017.  This exclusive membership program incentivizes wine tasters to visit a curated selection of wine tasting rooms via limited-time benefits. Each year, we feature a select group of wineries and share their story with members via email, website, and social media. WineryHunt club members receive a monthly email and other digital marketing campaigns introducing the Featured Wineries and providing driving directions and other trip details for an upcoming visit.

The program has been a resounding success for both consumers and wineries. Members often say they never would have visited the wineries without WineryHunt’s guidance, and wineries report very strong turnout, sales, and club signups. The model has proven itself a success and expanded to Washington in 2019 and Sonoma in 2020.

FAQ’s

What does Vinbound mean?

“Inbound marketing” is a marketing tactic which focuses on developing thorough, informative web content to organically attract viewers to your website and inspire action. Search engines reward this quality content by placing it higher in search results, and viewers reward quality content by becoming followers and customers. Vinbound is simply the extension of this marketing concept to the wine industry.

Do you work with businesses other than wineries?

We have been known to do work with beer and spirits companies, but in general our core competency is in the wine industry. Beyond wineries, we have worked with numerous AVAs and DMOs, as well as importers, vineyard management companies, tour guides, wine bars, single vineyards, and more.

Do you work with wineries outside of North America?

Yes! While the majority of our clients have been based in the United States and Canada, we are completely open to working with wineries throughout the world (and have done so already with wonderful wineries in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Europe)

Who is responsible for the work done on my behalf?

Vinbound’s Founder and Lead Developer Brian Richardson oversees all accounts and ensures all work provided by Vinbound meets and exceeds the standards of our winery clients.
