Your e-Cellar Door is Open 24/7
Ever heard this from a customer: "thanks…we’ll think about it and come back later". Often, this is a genuine comment from customers unable to make a decision, when they're with you in the cellar door.
WCD enables customers to easily overcome their regret of not buying at the winery. From the comfort of their car, hotel room, or even their home overseas; they can easily revisit your e-Cellar Door to complete their purchase in their own time.
Simplified to Sell More
Picture this: a totally paperless experience with confident customers buying as they taste, directly from your own e-Cellar Door.
WCD is optimized for use on your tasting room tablet, or directly on your customers phone.
No fuss pricing, no need to quote shipping, no more missed sales!
Satisfying Buyer Behaviours
Finally, a solution for mixed producer cases!
WCD fully supports & encourages producers selling full cases of their own wine, however consumers aren't always willing or able to commit to cases from each winery.
Wine tourism is as an emotional journey of discovery, unearthing new gems and sometimes forming lifelong relationships. This sensory experience fuels a desire to purchase mixed wine selections across a range of regions & wineries.
WCD is purpose built to deliver this long-time industry need.
Watch the magic of Wine Collective Direct for yourself.

Exports made easy
Powered by nzwinehome, our support team oversees every aspect of your customers New Zealand wine purchase, right from discovery-to-delivery.
Wine Collective Direct is the culmination of thirty years of intel & experience acquired by our founder Grant Rimmer. Obsessed with understanding the drivers behind a buyer's behaviour, Grant and his talented team have built WCD as place for winery Cellar Doors to access the secrets of sales success.
We're saying farewell to nzwinehome. Despite being immensely proud of NZWH's achievements, after sixteen years her original model and supporting software no longer meets the needs of craft wine producers, but more importantly it doesn't satisfy their customers. Retired from regular use, NZWH is now exclusively used for processing large scale wine clubs.
Wine Collective Direct is everything that nzwinehome couldn’t be. Recently optimized for it's original purpose, WCD is your modern mechanism to secure high value Cellar Door sales - both in the tasting room and out.
What does it cost?
WCD is free to join, with no monthly fees or establishment costs.
As with all sales situations, support costs are incurred during and after the sale. On behalf of wineries, WCD takes care of comprehensive customer support, compliance & credit card fees. As such, WCD incurs the sales support expenses that a winery would normally incur.
8.65% (of net wine sales proceeds) keeps your e-Cellar Door open to the world 24/7.
“With WCD I have found that they do what they claim to do and do it well. For us at High Garden Vineyard their service has worked very well, for our private customers in Australia, as our online store and door to door logistics service all in one. I can recommend their excellent service without hesitation.”
