Seasons Greeting & a huge vote of thanks to everyone for your support this year – It’s been a very busy year with lots of work behind the scenes on the NZ Wine Directory website & socials – just sharing the love of NZ Wine.

A special shout out especially to my ‘Partners in Wine,’ all you Feature Wineries of the Month (thanks for participating) and to those who requested Featured Wine Reviews your financial contributions helps fund the ongoing maintenance and development of this ‘free to use’ NZ Wine resource.

It’s just me running the whole business, so I must have a chat to myself about giving myself time off to have a break!

Here’s a Look back at 2023 – What have I been up to?

* I’ve added dozens of new businesses, removed lots too, updated and changed hundreds of website addresses.

* Contacted folks about their expired websites or domain names, broken links, social media and more.

* I’ve posted and shared over 140 New Zealand wine-related press releases, all sorts of wine events and competition results.

* Launched the “Featured Winery of the Month” campaign in January which has been a huge success – nearly fully booked for 2024.

* There are 52 Sections on the NZ Wine Directory & 4,000+ links to NZ Wine Businesses in pages and posts.

* Google reports the NZ Wine Directory averages 91.9K search impressions each Month.

* 1.08 Million impressions over the last 12 months – (Up 164% on 2022.)

* 23K New Users visited the site for the first time this year. (Up 26% on 2022.)

* Posted and shared over 450 NZ Wine related info on Facebook and Instagram.

* Reaching over 70K readers on Facebook and 8K followers on Instagram.

* LinkedIn impressions for posts: 111,914 (up 2,017.2%!)

* I’ve tasted and reviewed over 180 wines, sharing my notes on social media and archiving them on the NZ Wine Directory.

* Many thanks to everyone who sent me wines samples this year – our New Zealand wines are just stunning!

After a small break over the festive season, I’m looking forward to what 2024 will bring!

Kind regards and Cheers,

JB
