A dream called Winedering
Skills, experience and a good dose of madness. Thus was born the first international wine tourism marketplace
The idea was born in 2016 by the two co-founders: Denis Seghetti and Stefano Tulli.
Stefano, an international tour operator, wants to find online and easily wineries for his clients to visit, but he has no means to do so.
Denis is able to make it happen.
The two mix their skills and in a short time Winedering.com is online.
Winedering.com is born. It is aimed to collect wineries worldwide.
Marketplace development begins.
Winedering.com's marketplace, with the goal of selling winery experiences online, is beginning to take shape.
More wineries (about 150) and online experiences (about 300). We're getting our first bookings!
We're ready to explode but... the pandemic arrives.
In the meantime, we formed a partnership with Smartbox for the coming year and managed to win a € 20,000 grant at the italian ComoNext incubator.
It's time to push!
We resist the pandemic and raise € 125,000 in investments!
From May we start massive online marketing and SEO optimization campaigns.
Hundreds of bookings arrive! The suppliers are over 700 and the number of online experiences become over 1200
