Gismondi on Wine is Western Canada's leading source of industry news, wine tasting notes and stories.
When Anthony Gismondi decided to share his tasting notes online in 1997, his website instantly became an international resource for the industry and wine enthusiasts. It remains so today reaching 114 countries and major cities such as London and New York, as well as every major Canadian city, while serving British Columbians who make up 70% of our readers. In August 2019 we launched a free monthly newsletter with tasting notes and articles. Our subscriber base has grown steadily ever since. The newsletter performs well above average in open and click through rates, and in a recent survey, recipients told us their main reasons for subscribing was to find new wines to purchase and to learn about wine. Whether you are trying to reach a broader wine-buying public, or the more BC-centric and discerning audience of the newsletter, Gismondi on Wine will reach them.
We offer three Big Box (300px x 250px) units that run stacked above the fold in the right rail on desktop and tablet and front and center separated by one or two story blocks in mobile.

In a recent survey, 82% of respondents selected "Wine Releases" as the most enjoyable element of our newsletter. 53.6% said they were "looking for new wines" to buy.
