Wineries are unique in the sense that they are not a classic one-dimensional business. Wineries typically combine elements of wine production, retail store and restaurant. Some wineries also host special events such as wine tastings, corporate meetings and other gatherings. This wide range of functions means that wineries need specialized software and checkout systems that can handle, inventory tracking, hospitality, event planning and other aspects unique to each business.

A Winery Defined

The word "winery" is broad and loosely used terminology. For our purposes a winery could describe a large facility with an on-site vineyard, fermentation and bulk aging areas along with a retail storefront, lounge areas and full scale restaurant. For this site however, a winery might also be as simple as an urban wine tasting room that serves oeuvres and sells by the bottle.

For simplicity sake we will consider any business involved in the sale of wine as its primary function, (other than a wine shop) to be a winery. Because of this wide range of needs, it is important that accompanying software be robust and allow for more complex functions such as, wine clubs, shipping logistics, loyalty programs and detailed multifaceted reporting.
