The Winefront has been a subscriber-only, paywall-protected website from day one. It currently features 42,000+ unique, fully-searchable posts and over 180,000 user comments. That’s not a bad accumulation rate, or indeed interaction ratio.
The Winefront is a wine review site. It was the first online-only wine publication in Australia and it still offers a unique blend of independence/community/authority/activity. We used to boast that new content goes live on The Winefront site every day, 365 days of the year, but it’s now more like 6-days-a-week, 52 weeks of the year.
The Winefront is an industry leader and a force to be reckoned with. Growth year-on-year is tip top and has been for 10+ years.
I started The Winefront in 2002 but it wouldn’t be such a force without partners Gary Walsh and Mike Bennie.
