Project Description

The owners of this new website devoted to Virginia wineries wanted a website they could manage herself. They also wanted space for advertisers in order to have the site generate a solid revenue stream. With our partnership with Smellycat Productions, we developed a completely custom theme within the WordPress content management system (CMS). We provided an application that controlled the ad impressions and click-thru of the ads and added a custom form for wineries and related businesses to upload their listings. We also integrated their existing social media.

UPDATED 06/2016: A couple of years after the initial launch, Bad Banana was contacted directly by the vendor to conduct a complete overhaul of the site, from base architecture to graphic design. We elevated the website’s platform with a brand new, mobile friendly design, more blogging features and capabilities, a comprehensive winery index and more space for advertising.
