Wine tasting club aiming for fully booked evenings
Tasters Rotorua is a wine and food tasting club from Rotorua. They come monthly together to taste wines presented by New Zealand winemakers, paired with some fine delicious food. The club has a large number of members but some months there were still some places available.
Tasters Rotorua had a few requirements for a new website. Ideally they wanted to be fully booked each tasting, attract wine makers to present their wines, and keep members up to date with upcoming events
I made a new website that shows all upcoming and past events to keep members up to date. It is also easy for the committee to upload new events via a simple form and the events will go from upcoming to past events automatically. Visitors can also find information on joining the club or just join one event. I have also added a contact form to contact the club more easily.
As a result, the club has much more bookings now and is more often fully booked. Also more wineries have shown their interest via the website to present their wines at a club event, making it easier to plan upcoming events.

Mike Bannister – Former President Rotorua Tasters
“We are very pleased with Gert's work as he has completely updated and reformatted the site, that now provides information on upcoming tastings, as well as a history of past visits. As well as assisting our members to have additional resources to prepare for each tasting, we have noticed more enthusiasm in booking seats for the next tasting. It's almost as if a "secret switch" has been turned in the last month, as earlier tastings this year haven't been fully attended.”
