Corksy Acquires Vinebase – Wine Industry Advisor
New kid on the block, Corksy, is already making a splash in the wine industry with the recent acquisition of wine technology company, Vinebase.
Irvine, California, November 18, 2022 – The newest player in the field of wine technology, Corksyan end-to-end growth marketing and e-commerce platform for wineries to manage direct-to-consumer (DTC) sales, took its first steps by announcing the acquisition of wine technology company Vinebase.
Vinebase, founded following a COVID marketing campaign, has built a strong following with loyal independent wineries looking to grow their direct-to-consumer business. The platform built a DTC-business-in-a-box solution that grew in popularity over existing tools that they felt missed the mark on what wineries really needed. After building the platform for 2.5 years, the team found the need to partner with a company that could take the platform to the next level. Vinebase is thrilled to join Corksy in continuing to build the future of DTC wine.
Vinebase CEO Rachel Woods said, “Corksy’s vision, technology and team gave us confidence in the acquisition decision. Their drive and ability to solve key market issues will have a positive impact on the industry, a vision we closely share.
Vinebase acquisition adds 41 new customers to Corksy’s platform in less than a month. The success of the migration was underpinned by Corksy’s dedicated mission and values of putting customer success first.
Corky offers a range of solutions to manage all aspects of wineries’ end-to-end e-commerce and marketing needs. The platform’s ease of use, modern website builder, suite of e-commerce tools, and marketing automation features allow wineries to spend more time on vision and quality of an excellent wine experience.
CEO of Corksy, Hayden Monarch, said, “Our mission is to give wineries the e-commerce and marketing automation tools that allow them to make more money, while allowing them to focus on what they really love, making wine!”.
