Boutique Wineries ([url removed, login to view]) is an online boutique wine gateway, currently representing over 130 wineries from wine regions all over Australia. Boutique Wineries focuses on providing customers with easy and convenient access to the wines made by many of Australia’s finest, yet small, boutique wineries. This access gives the customer the opportunity to enjoy beautiful wines that are otherwise difficult to find.
Many of our customers know Boutique Wineries as the place to find that particular wine that they once tasted on a winery tour, and yet haven’t been able to find anywhere else. Boutique Wineries is also “the place” to enjoy wines with a difference. While there are over 2,000 wineries in Australia, the customer will be hard pressed to find the majority of them except at their cellar doors! So, there are a lot of beautiful, fine wines out there that we just don’t ordinarily get to hear about... wines from all of the wine regions across Australia.
When ordering through Boutique Wineries, the customers are ordering direct from the winery, just as if the customer were at the cellar door. The winery packages the wine and sends it straight to the customer.
To create more interesting content for our website visitors so they enjoy spending more time on the website reading about wine in general and specifically about some of the wineries listed on [url removed, login to view]
To do this, the project is broken into 3 sections:
1. create a short email survey designed to draw out interesting information about the wineries and winemakers
2. write up to 10 short articles that are each 250 – 400 words based on the answers received from the email survey. Each article shall be about a different winery.
3. write 25 short articles that are each 250 – 400 words about general wine topics.
This gives a total of 35 short articles.
These short articles will be:
• posted on the blog at: [url removed, login to view]; and
• used in future newsletters.
The scope of the project is as follows:
PART 1: CREATE A SHORT EMAIL SURVEY
Create a short email survey designed to be an interview to the wineries. The purpose of the survey is to provide you with some interesting content for the short articles about the winery and/or the winemaker in Part 2.
Examples of interesting information to ask the wineries include:
• history of the winemaker
• history of the winery
• is the owner and the winemaker the same person?
• how many cases do they make each year?
• what awards they have won?
• testimonials they have received
• other interesting facts that can come out of the survey
Or if you have any other ideas for the survey, please use them.
Once you have written the survey, please email the survey to me and I will send it to the wineries. I will then email the replies to you.
