Cherries & Grapes Online Michigan Wine Marketplace Expands and Excites

Cherries & Grapes – an online marketplace for Michigan wine, cider and specialty products – has continued to expand its products and capabilities. Cascade Winery and Burgdorf’s Winery are the latest wineries to join the online marketplace for Michigan wine. In addition to more products, Cherries & Grapes has continued to add new capabilities, including club management and a Facebook App that allows wineries and cideries to sell their products directly from their Facebook page.

“We are excited by the warm welcome that we have received from Michigan wine and cider fans,” says Michael Mikhjian, co-founder and technology lead at Cherries & Grapes. Local Michigan wine and hard cider fans will benefit from online access to their favorite wineries and cideries. If customers cannot make a trip across the state to the tasting room, they are able to easily order online and receive their delivery within a couple days.

Over the past month, Cherries & Grapes has added a number of features that help customers easily purchase wine online. “We are particularly excited about the launch of our Facebook App,” says Michael. “Our clients can extend their online store to their Facebook page, where their customers spend most of their time visiting.”

In addition to their Facebook App, Cherries & Grapes has continually improved their social experience for customers. Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter support is built-in to allow customers to share their favorite products with friends and family.

While Cherries & Grapes is designed to be a customer-centric website, it also simplifies life for Cherries & Grapes clients. “Cherries & Grapes makes selling online easy,” says Michael. “Our wineries benefit from instant age verification, shipping automation, club management and useful reporting. They realize that they can quickly start selling online without any upfront investment or on-going commitment.”
