Windsor Vineyards Chooses CORESense Retail Management Software

On-demand winery solution gives largest direct- to-consumer winery powerful website management and direct-to-consumer sales capabilities.


CORESense Inc. announced today that Windsor Vineyards, America's oldest and largest direct-to-consumer winery, has chosen CORESense’s Retail Management Software for Wineries to manage their direct-to-consumer retailing and wholesale business requirements.

Windsor Vineyards, known for quality wines and personalized labeling, has grown substantially over the last several years through the acquisition of multiple smaller wineries. They needed a system that would integrate and streamline their multiple sales channels including their original website, five sister websites, several wine-of-the-month clubs, catalog phone sales and their three tasting room retail outlets all in one centralized system that would create a seamless and enjoyable shopping experience for customers and help maintain the brand identity of each label.

"We wanted a single database for all of our direct customer transactions no matter how they came to us, through web, phone, wine club or tasting room. We wanted complete visibility on how we were handling our customers," said Pat Roney, owner of Windsor Vineyards. "We chose CORESense because we wanted to move to a complete enterprise system that is scalable and not tied to legacy systems - a system that can run all of our direct operations for multiple brands."

"Windsor is the oldest and largest direct-to-consumer winery in the world," said Jason Jacobs, CORESense CEO. "The fact that they selected CORESense is a tremendous endorsement of our winery solution, and its ability to meet the demanding requirements of multi-brand wineries like Windsor. We look forward to helping Windsor increase revenue and decrease operating costs across all their brands."

CORESense’s Retail Management Software for Wineries was released earlier in 2008 with a goal of providing an end-to-end retail management solution configured for the special needs of wineries. It is an on-demand solution that meets the unique marketing, selling and merchandising needs of wineries – particularly those with multiple sales channels like ecommerce, wine-of-the-month clubs, and tasting room outlets. Customer Service and business operations are improved with a real-time centralized view of sales and customers across all sales channels and brands.
