The Scenic Rivers Wine Trail was a very fun project for me. I always had my eye on this website since my in-law’s winery (Odessa Vineyards) was apart of this wine trail. My main goal for this website was to benefit all of the wineries along the trail and to drive in more customers for all. I wanted to create something that would be easy for visitors to view no matter what device they were using. Which I chose to you my favorite CMS, WordPress. This CMS is great for everyone because it is easy to use and very customizable.
My first task was the layout for each of the pages. I started with our main homepage. The idea for this page was to have an eye-catching banner that we could post events or feature each of the wineries along the trail in a rotating banner. Below this section, I created a simple button grouping that would make it easy for visitors to find events, wineries, or more information about the wine trail. As you progress down the page I created forms for signing up for the wine trail newsletter.
The next task was to create separate pages for each of the wineries to help them show what each winery has to offer. I wanted to create a look and feel for each of the wineries that were similar but also allowed each of them a little bit of personality. The biggest challenge was how to display the opening hours and events for each of the wineries.
