At WineryConnect we pride ourselves on partnering with solution providers who offer Best-of-Breed solutions to wineries. We are continually on the lookout for new solutions which “play well in the sandbox” and are open to being integrated into the solutions ecosystem we offer our customers.
Our growing list of partners includes:
When Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards contracted WineryConnect in 2014 to evaluate Point Of Sale (POS) systems they knew what they didn’t want. Hazlitt had plenty of experience with old POS systems which were hard to maintain, inflexible, and difficult or impossible to integrate with other business systems. They were ready for something new.
By working out a detailed RFP with Hazlitt’s key personnel, WineryConnect arrived at the best solution with Revel POS Systems, a next-generation POS provider focused on winery operations. WineryConnect has now partnered with Revel to deploy and support the Revel POS, and we have extended its capabilities with our own offerings. Over the years WineryConnect has helped Hazlitt grow their Revel deployment across multiple businesses at different locations as well as at some 2 festivals per week across the US throughout the summer.
Choosing Revel POS not only gives you the power, flexibility, and security of their system, but also pairs with our expertise customizing Revel to work for wineries and integrating Revel into other systems like eCommerce and our own offering: Savor . Our goal is to create seamless operation and reporting for all areas of your business.
Finally, WineryConnect solutions are backed by our top-notch local support team the Grape Squad . The Grape Squad is available 24/7 to provide in-person assistance within the Finger Lakes area as well as phone and email support with industry-specific knowledge.

New Nexternal Press Release and Buttonwood Grove case study out!!!
Nexternal was acquired in mid-2015 by a global commerce company based on their success for the last 18 years selling eCommerce to wineries. Now part of TrueCommerce, WineryConnect and Nexternal have worked together since late 2015 and we have tightly integrated the Nexternal winery eCommerce platform with vinESB. We can say with confidence that Nexternal is an industry leading solution for wineries that want to sell Direct To Consumer, and in particular their subscription wine club is the best we’ve seen. Their support is outstanding and their business processes are mature. Nexternal is our preferred eCommerce provider for wineries.
We built our vinESB cloud integration hub on top of Magento so that our customers would be able to take advantage of the vast library of existing Magento extentions to report on and work with their total organizational data. For example our customers have used the AheadWorks Market Segmentation Suite – a $199 one-time charge – to segment their customers based on total spend online and in Point of Sale.
Magento boasts an extensive marketplace of plug-ins to help you innovate your online operations. To top things off, WineryConnect has built custom Magento plug-ins specifically for the wine and beverage industry. From a Reward Club management system that automatically emails customers to a Shipping Rules module to limit state, customers can ship to, handle exceptions for states where shipments need to go to licensed establishments, among other compliance nuances.
In late 2018 WineryConnect evaluated a range of winery production control systems along with several of our customers. Our customers chose InnoVint and we are currently in the process of integrating InnoVint with vinESB, which will drive further operational efficiencies and also open up a world of possibilities in terms of overall organizational reporting and analytics. We expect to have a basic integration done within the first quarter of 2020.
