Digital Marketing That Wineries Can Trust

We Make Life Easier For Wineries

Wine Zebra is dedicated to helping wineries grow by transforming their online presence, no matter what their size is. We help bridge the digital gap between winery and consumer.

If your winery doesn’t have the resources to dedicate to an in-house marketing team, breathe easy. We exist to make your life easier.

Located in the Pacific Northwest, we understand the challenges wineries face when it comes to their online presence.

We believe human-to-human connection is vital – between us and our clients, and between our clients and their customers. You’ll find a distinct contrast between working with us and working with a large, “corporate” design agency. You have our full attention.

Founder — Joshua Burson

I’m Joshua, the wine-loving PNW-native who runs Wine Zebra.

Technology has always fascinated me – I made my very first website in 1996, at age 9. I studied digital media and design at the University of Oregon, and taught myself the more complex programming skills on my own time.

I’m also an avid musician, fitness nerd, and perfume collector.

And if you’re wondering, my favorite wine varietal is Argentine Malbec.

Wine Industry Focus

Because of our specific focus, we are trusted around the globe (literally) for our website design and digital marketing services that enable wineries to take grow their business.

We also welcome clients in the industry in general: Wine Country Resorts, Local Restaurants, Spirits and so on.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for a new website?

Typically 4-6 weeks, though it does depend on the complexity of the project. Integration with third-party services may slightly extend the turnaround time.

Do you work with wineries outside the United States?

We do! We have received requests from and done work for wineries across the globe. Unfortunately, due to the recent GDPR laws, we are unable to work with wineries from countries in the European Union for the time being 🙁

Which hosting should I use?

We recommend that wineries use VPS hosting, as shared hosting can be sketchy and unreliable, and even dangerous. We’ve seen wineries unknowingly sharing IP addresses with adult websites, which puts your website at risk and counts against your SEO score.

Our favorite provider for VPS hosting is Linode, with a close second to DigitalOcean. Just know that you’ll need to know a decent amount about server management when going this route.

If you’d like the security and performance that VPS hosting provides without the headache of managing a web server yourself, we offer done-for-you VPS hosting plans for wineries.

What do you charge for winery websites?

Our prices start at $2,500 depending on your needs. Our rates for Squarespace and WordPress are the same; it truly depends on the complexity of the project, not on the platform you’ve chosen.

Do you accept Bitcoin?

We accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. We recommend either Ethereum or Litecoin for transactions, as the fees are significantly lower and the sending time is significantly faster.

Can you work with Squarespace sites?

Yes, we can. However, we highly recommend using WordPress instead as it’s a far more sophisticated, powerful option that can be as simple or robust as you desire. We don’t charge you more for WordPress than we would for Squarespace.
