Ourwinery is preparing to release our first wine. This fairly expensive, higherend Cabernet Sauvignon. I'd like a design for a website that is clean, simpleyet sophisticated, and uses the great contrast of Black and White with Redaccents.
Colors and Logo/Label Examples
Thedesign should incorporate the colors of the logo: black, red and white. Click here for the logo and label designs I like.
A Picture I like
I envision a horizontal,header-type, picture of old twisted vines in black and white. I have posted a photo I like. However if you have another you like or this does not work, that is fine.

Perhaps a textured background
Maybea textured white background (like linen) might be nice? Something similar to this. http://www.grsites.com/archive/text…iew/source
I'd liketo see the following sections in the navigation bar:
Home, Wines,Join, About Us, Events, Olin’s Blog, Trade & Media, Contact Us
Main Section of Website
In themain body, I'd like to see three sections, kind of like thefirst website in the "websites I like":
· View Current Wines
· Learn about our winemaking
· Read Olin’s Blog
If you canfit it and it looks good, I think a space for the most recent few additions to “Events"would be good.
The bottomcan have a standard: "Copyright © 2009 Olin Wines. All rights reserved."
Websites I like
WhatI like:Ilike this website’s simplicity and modern feel. I also like the fact that youcome onto the site and it is clear what you can do. I like the three main choices.
WhatI don’t like:Thebright colors. Looking for something richer. I would like the fixed graphics ontop to take less of the page (I would prefer about 25% narrower that what thissite features)
WhatI like:Again3 quick choices so people who don’t read can instantly do something. Clean design.
WhatI don’t like:Wouldprefer the 3 choices on the left. Do notlike the grey bar in the about us section (with the about us and the rssfeed). It is a template with no designcharacter.
