Winedirectory.co.za is the "Little Black Book" for the wine industry. Its primary focus is to promote and market wine businesses via the internet. We offer free and premium listings that allow you to expose your winery and show case wines to visitors searching to purchase good South African wines online.
Momentum in retail e-commerce sales continues to grow. The market for business-to-consumer (B2C) ecommerce is set for significant growth with an expected growth rate of 25% each year. Its double-digit year-over-year growth rate is a result of sales shifting away from retail stores and in part because online shoppers are increasingly choosing the convenience of shopping online in the comfort of their own environment.
The goal of the directory is to list and organise all wine sites and ensure the most pertinent and useful information about the wine business is available in one easy to navigate location.
Our web-savvy team have undertaken to produce a comprehensive Internet directory and online marketplace for the wine industry. Not only does Winedirectory promote wine but also offers a platform for consumers to buy wine direct from the cellar door. With careful design processes coupled with effective search engine optimisation techniques our team have developed a website for any business involved in wine that are focused on exposing and enhancing its brand on the world wide web.
A long, sun-dappled lunch with the owners of a wine estate in Burgundy made an unforgettable impression on the then-teenaged Leslie. The movie-like scene of laden tables and new friends playing boulle together (while sipping on a vintage red, of course) catalysed her lifelong passion for good food and great wine. These days, Leslie is kept on her toes with a gorgeous busy toddler and her three other passions, Winedirectory, Wineweb and Wine-Club SA.
With a business degree from the University of Pretoria and fifteen years' experience in ecommerce, merchant banking, publishing consulting and running an internet service provider, Leslie's the kind of person who has big dreams - and makes them come true.
This self-confessed wine geek has found a way to marry her two passions in her work: Described as a catalyst, dot-connector and galvaniser, she founded and still manages popular wine websites Winedirectory, Wineweb and Wine-Club SA.
A down-to-earth Pretoria girl at heart, Leslie's other interests include travel, scuba diving, photography, reading, movies and keeping fit.
