Big White House Winery | Big Reds & Tasty Whites

Design • Development • Illustration • Copywriting

Big White House Winery and John Evan Cellars is a boutique winery out of Livermore, CA. They clearly produce and sell wine but they're not currently pursuing an e-commerce component. Their core revenue model is based on traffic through their tasting room.

Since the goal was to drive physical traffic to the winery (as opposed to selling wine through the website), we took some creative liberties in really showing off their tasting room. We worked to highlight the initmate setting that they offer compared to some of the larger case volume producers in the region. We effectively developed a storyboard - walking the customer through a true, "Livermore Valley Winery Experience".
