Airoldi Fine Wines is an importer and seller of fine wines from all over the world. Founder Daniel Airoldi first approached me to make some tweaks to his WordPress website and also to deal with various security issues.
The existing Airoldi Fine Wines site was simply an online portfolio of available wines, so in 2017, Daniel decided it was time to take the plunge and launch a fully-fledged online store so that his customers could purchase his wines online.
I executed the entire online store build for Daniel, which included setting up WooCommerce with a highly-customised Genesis-based theme; creating custom fields and taxonomies for his wines; building a custom plugin to import his existing wine catalogue into WooCommerce; integrating with MYOB AccountRight to handle order processing and stock updates; and integrating with Westpac PayWay and PayPal to take card payments.
I also set up complex shipping rules; wrote custom code to set a minimum order value; integrated the checkout with MailChimp; and installed and heavily customised an advanced filtering plugin to enable customers to browse Daniel’s extensive catalogue of wines easily.
The end result is an easy-to-use store that beautifully presents Daniel’s wine portfolio and is easy for Daniel and his team to manage.
At a time when our old website was attacked by nasty viruses, we were recommended to get in touch with Matt. He was very helpful from the very beginning, listening and understanding my needs. As a result we now have a beautiful, working website, kept up to date.
The speed at which Matt replies is also very impressive compared to most in this industry and I am very happy to be using his services on an ongoing basis.
