EWBC2008 Wineries with blogs

Social media is a fairly new area for most people in the wine industry (what is social media?). So it’s great when we discover a couple of wineries that are trying to understand and embrace this new way reaching their customers.

There are some other very good examples of winery blogs but I’ll be listing those who decided to join us at the European Wine Bloggers Conference in Rioja.

Poggio Argentierafollow on adegga
Gianpaolo and Justine Paglia run this Italian winery in the Morellino di Scansano DOCG and they both write a great blog full of articles, photos, videos and even maps about their winery. It’s a great example of how to use a blog to reach your customers.

La Gramiérefollow on adegga
Amy Lillard produces wine in the south of France (Castillon du Gard on the Cotes du Rhone appellation) where she’s growing vineyards organically and biodynamically. Amy writes a amazingly open blog about the day to day life of running a vineyard. She was a finalist at the American Wine Blog Awards.

Cortes de Cimafollow on adegga
José Eduardo Silva was one of the Portuguese that attended the conference representing a winery. Cortes de Cima in a innovative winery from Alentejo in Portugal. They have recently launched a new site that includes a blog and also photos and videos from their winery. Certainly an example in the wine online world in Portugal.

Weingut Clauerfollow on adegga
Thomas Lippert works for a German winery called Weingut Clauer but his personal wine blog is at winzerblog.de. An interesting example of a winery employee actually promoting winery blogging via his personal blog.

Quevedofollow on adegga
Óscar Quevedo was at the EWBC representing this Portuguese winery. They have recently created a winery blog where the one of the main subjects is obviously Port!

Casa Videsfollow on adegga
Emilio Saez van Eerd is the new export director for Spanish wine producer La Casa de las Vides. He’s also writing a brand new winery blog.

Bodegas Tintoralbafollow on adegga
Javier Navarro is in charge of writing on the Tintoralba blog of this well known Spanish winery.

These are very interesting wine producers that are looking for different ways to engage with their costumers. Make sure you add these producers to your Adegga Watchlist so you can follow what they are up to.

For us, meeting with the wineries that decided to join the EWBC was a great experience. We have received lots of positive feedback and some of the wineries now have a Adegga Winery Account with which they can now reach their customers in a new and interesting way.

    thank you for featuring us. I have to say to my collegues that haven’t embraced the blog yet, don’t be afraid, it’s actually a lot of fun and your customers will love it.
    Great job your doing out there in Portugal. Bravo.

    Thanks for mentioning us. I completely agree with Gianpaolo. Today I met a bloger/owner of a wine shop in Holland who wants to write about my winery because she prefers wines with a story. That’s the whole idea of blogging, telling the world your story!

    Adegga; Let me know when you start in Spain!

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the reference! Remember to bring me a couple of moos to pass around to some “blind wineries”. And André don’t you dare to forget my wine! Thanks for bringing with you.
