As many winebusiness.com users have likely noticed, the winebusiness.com home page has been redesigned. The new home page features a responsive design for tablets and smart phones; is updated throughout the day; and includes an emphasis on our editorial voice.

All the features you’ve come to expect from winebusiness.com are still there, though there are changes to the navigation. We’ve received a considerable amount of feedback, both via twitter, and by way of email: Feedback helps us improve. Please tell us what you think via editor@winebusiness.com

Here’s a sampling of some feedback and constructive criticism we received:

First of all, congratulations on your new Home Page, and all of the new services it provides. Very handy, very practical, completely up to date. Many thanks.

Wow, I hate the new redesign. I gotta’ tell you, yuck. The site was my favorite because it was so easy to use. Now it's really hard to use. It occurs to me: maybe it looks better this way on a phone?

Guys, congratulations. It is great. Love the blue boxes. Love the time of posting.
So much good stuff.

I really dislike your new website layout. As a daily reader, I just wanted to voice my concern. … But I still think you do a great job.

Wow! The new WineBusiness app is very cool and it's easy to find on my IPhone homepage! Thanks!

OMG how do you take something that was so nimble and nifty and turn it into
a plodding, cumbersome mess. Sorry to see your product ruined.

Congratulations on your new Home Page, and all of the new services it provides - very handy, very practical, completely up to date. Many thanks.

As a DTC professional, and a wine industry veteran for over 10 years, I absolutely appreciate the desire to be mobile, relevant, timely, engaging and easily accessible. However, I must say that your new home page is terrible. I can’t find anything and now you are determining for me what you think is relevant to me. I have never written a “letter to the editor” and I have no doubt that I am in the minority. But, for many years, Wine Business has been a morning staple of information and news pertinent to my job; today, I feel confused and out of the loop. … I would be remiss if I didn’t comment.

I just preferred the old layout because I could quickly scan the article links and explore whatever I thought would be relevant or interesting. I dislike the new layout because navigating feels slower and more difficult to find articles that I am interested in.

Congrats to your team for the new webpage re-design! I love how the latest news from different areas is all available at a glance. Hope all is well with you and that you are having a great 2014 so far!!

Nice job on the new web look - very cool.

Words cannot express how much I dislike the new format
