Get Started

Including a QR code on your wine label is a huge untapped opportunity for wine brands. You can easily present information specific to that bottle of wine along with links to purchase, join your mailing list, etc.

The Problem

Your wine label shows a generic brand URL

Your core brand website is important, but it is broad and doesn’t cater to a specific bottle of wine. Consumers looking at your label often are searching for tasting notes, story content, etc specific to that SKU— and your main homepage probably isn’t where they should be directed to.

The Solution

A SKU-specific, mobile-first website accessed by QR code on your label

Direct your consumers to a microsite (a simple mobile website) created specifically for your wine SKU. Select from one of our templates and provide your desired customizations — our team will create your BottleQR site, generate a QR code to put on your label, and continue to host/manage the site and provide analytics.

BottleQR Manages The Entire Process

Microsite Creation

Choose from one of our microsite templates and provide the desired content and branding. You have full control of what consumers see when they scan your QR code

QR Code Generation

A high-resolution QR code will be provided to you for inclusion on your wine label. The code points to your wine-specific site

Hosting & Managed Edits

We host your BottleQR website on a dedicated URL (name.bottleqr.com or name.yourwebsite.com) and provide ongoing edits and security

Analytics & Client Portal

Analytics are emailed to your team on a monthly basis and are available in an online portal. You can always see which QR codes are active, where they are pointing and how they are performing

FAQs

Do people actually use QR codes?

YES! There has been a huge increase in QR in recent years, and camera phones now scan QR codes by default without needing to access a specific app. It has proven to be the fastest way to access a website from a mobile device, and with BottleQR you control the exact mobile experience they are directed to.

How Does This Work? What Are The Next Steps?

Setup of your site is easy. Start by sending us an inquiry via the form below. We will then work with you to customize the site(s) exactly to your standards and will supply you with a high-res QR code to give to your label designer. Your BottleQR site will go live as soon as you want it to and will stay live and managed as long as you want.

How far in advance do we need to set this up?

You will need to have the QR code generated and supplied to your label designer in time for printing of your labels. However, the final version of the website does not need to be completed until you start selling/distributing your wines.

Why did Vinbound develop BottleQR?

We saw a huge missed opportunity on the back of every wine label to better communicate the wine details and provide a central spot to easily purchase more of the bottle, join the mailing list, become a social media follower, etc.

Is there a contract or minimum engagement?

There is a 1-year minimum for all BottleQR sites. After 1 year you can cancel your subcription and take down your BottleQR site, although we recommend keeping it active for the time period that the vintage is in active distribution. Note that you can request to change the URL or the QR code at any point…we will point the QR code to your core brand website or anywhere else on cancellation of the BottleQR site itself.

How many pages can the BottleQR site have?

Technically, one. By design, BottleQR mobile websites are just one page… Deeper “pages” of these microsites are actually hidden sections that appear by popup functionality.

For this reason, these websites are perfect for a specific SKU, but not intended for your full winery or brand website. They are not intended to appear in organic search results and are only intended to be accessed via QR code on a mobile device.

How customizable is the QR code itself?

Very! Your QR code can be a generic square design, or we can customize it any way you like (rounded corners, circle, logo in center of code, call to action around code, etc). We will provide you options as you work through our onboarding process.

What is the advantage of pointing a QR code to a BottleQR site versus my own website?

There are a number of advantages to having a BottleQR microsite as opposed to pointing the QR code to a landing page on your own website
