I've been in building websites for clients for many years and now it's time to bring that knowledge and experience to bare on something that's closer to home, something I am passionate about -- Vermont.

Montpelier, VT (PRWEB) September 25, 2008
Blueberry Publications, Inc. is pleased to announce the initial launch of their latest project VermontWine.com (http://www.vermontwine.com). VermontWine.com is an information resource and marketing website promoting Vermont wines and vintners. The new website is a base framework to support future services for consumers and Vermont winery owners.
7th Pixel (http://www.7thpixel.com), a division of Blueberry Publications, Inc., developed the website with design advice from RavenMark (http://www.ravenmark.com). 7th Pixel is a website strategies and development firm. RavenMark is a graphic design and marketing firm. Both are located in Montpelier, Vermont.
Blueberry Publications, Inc. has worked on a marketing and development plan for VermontWine.com for the past few years. The initial launch is only the beginning of what's to come.
"We're keeping watch on the Vermont laws regarding the online sale of wines," says Gregg Banse, the President of 7th Pixel. "We're researching the laws regarding the sale of wine and hard cider over the Internet. We fully intend to move forward with our own online storefront."
When asked why he'd want to build his own website after building websites for clients Banse replied "I've been in building websites for clients for many years and now it's time to bring that knowledge and experience to bare on something that's closer to home, something I am passionate about -- Vermont."
"VermontWine.com is just the beginning of a much larger project that I believe will benefit consumers of Vermont products and Vermonters alike. There's a story to be told as much as there is a product to be sold. The people behind the products have such wonderfully diverse lives and the stories of how such skilled, experienced people found themselves creating and selling their product is very interesting to me. Not to mention their dedication to their craft. It's what Vermont is known for."
"I've seen too many Vermont businesses struggle with the alphabet soup of online services, often to spend thousands of dollars to get a website and then discover that it doesn't do what they wanted or expected. It's not as simple as saying the website design/development firm failed them or that their expectations were too high. It's more a matter of the lack of experience and communication on both sides. My ability to communicate and ensure my client's understand what I propose to them and why is what has led to my success," says Banse. "Now, I'm preparing to bring that skill set, along with my experience to provide tools and services to Vermont businesses - starting here with VermontWine.com."
VermontWine.com offers a list of the wineries in Vermont along with the wines they produce. There's also a calendar of wine related events and news related to Vermont wines and the Vermont wine industry. Banse says they are currently working on a list of stores in Vermont that sell Vermont wines.
