creating an elevated design for a high-end brand

the challenge

Handwritten Wines opened its doors in 2009 and recently found a home in Downtown Yountville, located at the center of Napa Valley. Celebrating ancient traditions, the winery honors all things handcrafted and handwritten with Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from hillside and mountain district vineyards. The result is evocative wines and elevated experiences.

Handwritten Wines required a new website that showcased their high-end brand with a simplified but elegant design and comprehensive user experience. The new website would also require an eCellar integration to allow for easy shopping and wine club registration.

our solution

A new website was built on WordPress and eCellar was seamlessly integrated. We developed a modern and clean design with traditional elements to bring out the brand’s handwritten aesthetic. Users can easily navigate the website and find important pages to shop wines, join the club, attend events, and book tastings. Our engineers then integrated marketing automation platform, VBOUT, with Handwritten Wines’ eCellar account to create email campaigns such as abandoned cart.
