An idea that started as a pipe dream getting bounced around between a few mates having a beer at the Rosemount has now developed into the Vine Collective.
Vine Collective is a platform for all things wine. Their aim is to provide you with the ultimate guide to wine tourism in Western Australia and soon you will get the opportunity to purchase wines from the multitude of quality boutique wineries you won’t usually find in your local liquor store. They just need to cross their t’s and dot their i’s on their licencing arrangements and then you are going to be able to purchase wine that will impress even the most haughty connoisseur.
On top of that they want to build a community that we can all contribute to and help each other progress along our own wine journeys. You can follow wine bloggers to get the lowdown on the best wines and winery experiences and follow wineries to keep up-to-date with all their latest happenings.
Think of Vine Collective as a Trip Advisor for wine.
They’ve ventured through Western Australia’s diverse wine regions gathering content, meeting winemakers and sampling a few drops along the way. Every wine region in WA has been profiled with lots of breathtaking pictures and they offer you a truly unique way to review your experiences out at wineries. They call it the ‘Vinescape’. It’s been developed through years of PhD research and allows you to be the expert and give everyone else the low down on which wineries are really lifting the bar with the experiences they provide.
Key features include:
• Profiles of all nine of WA’s wine regions, including winery rankings as well as a filterable map and winery listings
• Winery reviews using the Scientifically designed Vinescape review tool
• Wine profiles and reviews
• User profiles
• An educational blog featuring some of Perth’s most prominent wine writers
You can sign up now and start your own wine profile to connect with other wine lovers, write reviews and follow your favourite winery
It’s early days yet but big things have humble beginnings and they are adding new wineries to the site every day. Vine Collective is set to become the one stop shop for all things wine.
