Sponsor Wine-Searcher

Sponsorship is a premium listing which promotes your products in Wine-Searcher search results. It will increase your wine sales by driving more traffic to your website and increasing your overall visibility on the internet. Our brief video below explains how.

Sponsoring Wine-Searcher is easily the most efficient way to get noticed by keen wine buyers. The website is used by over two million users each month, many of whom arrive from our affiliate sites and API users. These include such respected websites as Wine Enthusiast,,, Burgundy Report,,, CellarTracker, Wine Berserkers, and La Revue du Vin de France.


  • Premium Listing
    Sponsors' lists are prioritized in several ways, in search results and during database maintenance. They receive preferential listing in free-for-use searches (89% of all searches), and are highlighted in Pro Version search results. Sponsors are also given priority listing in Find a Store searches.

  • Banner Advertisement
    We offer a free, geo-targeted banner advertisement to all sponsors. During the sponsorship term this displays on the sponsor merchant's profile page, and on a variety of search-result and information pages.

  • Merchant Portal
    This feature enables sponsors to:
    • manage their banner advertisements and complimentary Pro Version accounts
    • view their referral & visit statistics in graph form
    • view their payment history and print associated receipts.

  • Complimentary Pro Version Accounts
    All sponsorships come with three free Pro Version accounts.

  • Guarantee
    We are confident about our service and delivery, so we offer a 3-week money-back guarantee on all new 6-month or 12-month sponsorship terms.

Getting Started

Your initial sponsorship term is based on the number of wines you have listed on Wine-Searcher, as per the table below. . Note: to become a sponsor, merchants must be listed with Wine-Searcher for 6 months or more.

  • Payment: To sign you up as a Wine-Searcher sponsor we'll need your payment details. Please fax us your credit card details using the appropriate form: >750 wines, <750 wines or <150 wines. Alternatively, contact us to arrange payment by check, bank transfer or PayPal.

  • Banner: Your banner advertisement graphic must be 468x60 pixels in a .jpg or .gif format, and no larger than 45KB. Animated .gifs are permitted, but multi-media formats such as Shockwave are not. Here are some examples. If you do not have a banner we can prepare a simple one for you on request.

Continuing as a Sponsor

Four weeks before your initial sponsorship term expires we will send you an email with revised rates for renewal. Merchants paying on a monthly basis are eligible for a rate revision only after 6 consecutive months of continuous sponsorship. Rates quoted remain valid throughout the new sponsorship term, or for up to 12 months. Subsequent terms are priced according to the performance of your sponsorship to date. We try to maintain an average value of $0.27 USD per point of contact. A point of contact is a 'referral', a 'visit' to your Wine-Searcher profile page, or an email sent to you via our site.

NB: All pricing is subject to a base rate of $50 USD per month plus $0.27 USD per point of contact.
