The Better Half Wines are a tongue-in-cheek reference to the friendly rivalry between husband-and-wife winemakers – George and Jules. Based in Marlborough, The Better Half Wines are a tribute to all those couples who dare to dream big and fly high.
George Elworthy, Owner
Following a successful migration to Shopify for the Jules Taylor Wines website, we then asked Communica to build us a very cost effective new website for another label, The Better Half Wines. The brief here was quite different: a minimalist design and a modern, responsive, easy to use and easy to manage website. Communica nailed the brief, building the website on Wordpress. We appreciate that they were able to provide different solutions that were structured to meet the different needs of these two brands.

Katy Prescott, Marketing Manager
The Communica team have been an expert strategic and technical partner to Jules Taylor Wines, advising on and executing all aspects of our website and digital marketing strategy. They seamlessly migrated the Jules Taylor website including all historic data to a new platform on time with no disruption or obvious impact on our visitors. The new site is better optimised for sales, provides better analytics and insights into our business, and is better integrated with our other digital marketing tools. Since implementing these changes we have seen our online sales increase dramatically.

Barbara Fountain, Director and Managing Editor
I have enjoyed working with Communica from day one and that is not something you can say about all website development relationships. Right from the start of our working relationship, Amber and Gareth have understood what getting it right first time means for a small business. I was able to talk directly with the developers and received great feedback on what was possible, what might be possible but not a good idea, and what just straight out wasn’t going to work. They have an appreciation that time is money and try not to waste either.
