NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rocco Lombardo, President of Frederick Wildman and Sons, Ltd. since July 2014, describes how the website's most recent revamp of structure, design and content sets ‘the bar for wine importer information’. Lombardo states, “Since the sizeable revamp in 2010, Wildman is one of the most followed national wine and spirits companies online and on all social media channels.”
Celebrating 15 years of online presence, frederickwildman.com was slated for a fresh new look. Known in wine circles as one of the most comprehensive sites, frederickwildman.com provides an immeasurable source of information for both the trade and the end consumer. Easy-to-click tech sheets, valuable customized wine information for somms and wine buyers, as well as direct access to all interactive media—great for sales reps, presentations and educational meetings.
“A major re-launch of the website took place in 2010 when I was rehired by Wildman to take on the online marketing responsibilities for the company,” said Craig Drollett, Director of Internet Marketing. “Having co-founded Tastelive.com back in 2008, I knew that there was a lot more to do in the way of social media for the wine business than what was already available,” continued Drollett. “Metrics have shown that frederickwildman.com and our networks are consistently in the top tier for our category.”
Today, the fresher-looking website includes the following informational resources:
- Virtual tours of all the major properties imported by Frederick Wildman and Sons, with “dive-in” capabilities fueled by Google Earth
- Interactive maps of world major appellations from Europe to South America
- Interactive map of the entire Cote D’Or including all premier and grand cru vineyards
- Short winemaker video interviews depicting unique facts about our properties
- Up-to-the-minute harvest updates from winemakers/oenologists themselves
- One-of-a-kind interactive video series showcasing a ‘one-click’ customized adventure to Hugel and Alsace
