Based in the heart of central London, Soho Wine Supply is one of the city’s best-loved, independentwine and spirit merchants. Soho Wine Supply is a long-established supplier to a number of prestigious 5-star hotels, restaurants and style bars based in Central London.
Soho Wine Suppy approached White Feather Designs for a complete website overhaul of their online shop and a strategy to increase online sales.
They had a compelling story, but they needed to build trust and credibility in their space.
The new design needed to take into account a number of factors to make sure it would succeed. The entire UI was one aspect, but we also needed to look at the customer journey through to checkout.
A successful online shop at the heart of the new solution, to enable customers to purchase with ease and which allows for both promotions and discount codes to be applied and managed.
The products available on the Soho Wine website are made up of a number of different criteria which need to be made available for potential customers to perform searches.
Wine is a competitive industry. To set Soho Wines apart from the competition, we hoped to transform the way that customers find and purchase wines online with original and creative ideas. We wanted them to discover wine from new perspectives via unique product filtering capabilities, convenient collection cases and a highly detailed product page.
As part of the website overhaul, we spent time with Soho Wine Supply to understand their changing business needs and future aspirations.
We wanted to reflect their brand philosophy in the website, along with creating a meaningful and sophisticated space that their client base would appreciate.
The new website was built with a bespoke Wordpress theme.
