Quilceda Creek Winery launches dynamic new website with interactive components for an immersive user experience
“When designing the website, every component was chosen with meticulous intent,” says Lindsay Regan, vice president of brand strategy at Offset Partners. “We wanted the website to spark curiosity and inspire viewers to delve deeper into the history of Quilceda Creek and the true sense of place that Quilceda Creek wines embody.”
Upon opening the website, users are immediately transported to the Quilceda Creek Estate vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills and Red Mountain AVAs of the Columbia Valley through panoramic drone imagery. The “Vineyards” portion of the website is equipped with an animated, clickable SVG map that shows the driving route through the Columbia Valley to the winery’s three vineyards: Champoux, Galitzine and Mach One. The website features interactive statistics and facts about the vineyards, as well as a comprehensive timeline allowing users to visually explore four decades of winemaking and history at Quilceda Creek.
“The website details the unique conditions of our three vineyards, including the famous Champoux vineyard where we recently increased our controlling interest to 79%,” said President and Director of Winemaking Paul Golitzin. “We want visitors to the website to really see and understand how the climate of a vineyard like Champoux, which is characterized by its altitude, diurnal changes and sandy loam soils, shapes our wines. From vine to glass, attention to the smallest facts and figures plays a vital role in the wines we create, and the new website reflects this.
In the “Wines” section of the website, users can explore rotating bottle images of Quilceda Creek’s five wine offerings: Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (SRP $225), Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 8 (SRP $225) , Palengat Cabernet Sauvignon Mach One Vineyard Clone 685 (SRP $225), Tchelistcheff Cabernet Sauvignon Mach One Vineyard Clone 412 and CVR (SRP $70), a declassified blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Those interested in learning more about the history of Quilceda Creek and the winery’s future plans can take a deep dive at the interactive website at www.quilcedacreek.com.
About Quilceda Creek Winery
Quilceda Creek was established in 1978 by Alex and Jeannette Golitzin. The winery’s first vintage dates back to 1979, making Quilceda Creek the 12th oldest winery in post-prohibition Washington. Alex Golitzin’s inspiration to start the winery was fueled by numerous visits to Napa Valley in his youth, where he spent time with his maternal uncle, André Tchelistcheff, the legendary Napa Valley winemaker known as name of “dean of American winemaking”. Paul Golitzin joined his father as a winemaker in 1992 and directs all aspects of vineyard management and winemaking. With a gifted palate and an uncompromising commitment to quality, Paul has focused the winery’s attention on its greatest assets: the vineyards of the Columbia Valley. Quilceda Creek wines are the expression of three vineyards: Champoux, Galitzine and Mach One. Paul’s vision catapulted wines to a new level of excellence, resulting in some of the highest reviews and accolades of any winery in the United States: seventeen 100-point ratings from six critics different from Wine Advocate, Decanter and International Wine Report. Additionally, Quilceda Creek was awarded three of Wine Spectator’s Top 10 Wines of the Year and Wine Enthusiast’s Top Cabernet of the Year.
