Today we’ve got a brief round-up of the best WordPress wine themes and a few of the best brewery themes now available for 2017.
A couple of features to keep an eye out for when selecting one of these themes are an easy to set-up menu (or wine list) and WooCommerce support for online sales. The winery and brewery niches make up a very small segment of the WordPress theme market and, as a result, not all the themes on this list support both features. Some of the themes on this list – most notably, the brewery themes – were selected for overall design quality.
The first part of the list is wine themes, the second half, brewery themes.
If you need hosting for your WordPress site, we recommend Bluehost. They’re pretty much at the top of the hosting game, and there’s few that can match them in terms of reliability, performance and cost.
All themes were picked by hand, because doing it any other way would be stupid. But, full disclosure: you’re not going to find many brewery or winery specific themes for WordPress beyond these. If you don’t like what’s on this list, you might have to consider adapting a more generic theme, or just commission to have one designed from scratch. Some poor designer out there probably needs the work anyway. Not me, of course. I’m very wealthy.
But enough about me and my millions. Let’s start the list with…
Momamia is currently our favorite WordPress winery theme and general restaurant theme. It’s also the newest on our list and built on Twitter Bootstrap 3.1, making it 100% responsive. The theme is styled for use with WooCommerce, and allows you to build user-friendly menus with a drag and drop editor.
There’s lots of flexibility here, and room for customization, with over 90 options available on the back-end. Six page templates are included, three custom widgets, nine sidebar/widget areas, eleven slide backgrounds, and more. Lots of shortcodes are included, too.
Momamia comes with demo content for quick & painless setup, and comprehensive documentation is provided by the developer.More Info/Download
Wine House is our second favorite winery theme. It has all the features you’ll need to build a professional, awesome looking website for your winery, wine shop, or fine dining establishment. It’s also fully responsive and retina-ready, so its sleek, modern layout & design is going to look and work great across a range of high-resolution mobile devices.
Other useful features include a built-in ratings system, an online booking system for making reservations, and excellent gallery integration. Visual Composer is bundled free, for front-end drag & drop page building, and the premium Slider Revolution plugin is also included as a bonus.
Wine House is optimized for both SEO and performance.More Info/Download
Next we have Villenoir, featuring a classy, elegant design. Best suited for winery and wine sites, the designers aimed for an air of sophistication and (we think) hit the mark pretty well. E-commerce features are powered by WooCommerce, the most powerful and popular WordPress plug-in for building online storefronts.
Visual composer is provided for drag-and-drop page building, and the minimalist design can be tweaked on the back-end using an extensive array of options. A variety of custom widgets are provided, in addition to four different shop styles.
The theme is SEO optimized, translation ready, and extensively documented. Demo content is included for one click import. Built on the popular Bootstrap framework by Twitter.More Info/Download
This newcomer excels not only in terms of its elegant, sophisticated design–essential for any vineyard, winery, or wine shop website–but also scores big points for versatility. Vineyard is one of the most flexible entries on our list, providing four distinct homepage variations out-of-the-box, and a wide variety of catalog and blog layouts to choose from.
Vineyard is packed with modern features and functionality, resulting in an above average user-experience and high-performance. Features like AJAX searching, drag & drop page building (courtesy of Visual Composer), and an extensive admin interface, make Vineyard user-friendly for both site visitors and webmasters.
Vineyard is mobile-optimized, responsive, and retina-ready, guaranteeing a consistent and great-looking user experience across the full range of mobile and desktop devices. The code is optimized for SEO, helping you score a coveted top-spot in Google and other search engines (something that can often make the difference between success and failure).
Online storefront & e-commerce functionality is provided via WooCommerce integration, and Vineyard includes out-of-the-box support for other popular third-party plugins, like Revolution Slider (bundled) and Contact Form 7.
Vineyard is well documented (including video tutorials) and includes six months of free support. If you have a few minutes, we recommend clicking through to the product’s detail page for a full list of features, and to maybe check out the demo while you’re at it.More Info/Download
A relatively recent addition to our vineyard and winery picks, Wise Mountain is a theme that gets a lot of mileage out of minimal trends: tasteful, elegant typography and flat design provides the theme with air of class and sophistication.
This is a great option for developers looking for a no-nonsense, stripped down solution. There’s just enough flexibility to allow for branding, but no so many bells & whistles that the theme gets bogged down by gimmicky animations and flashy jQuery flourishes. eCommerce is supported: webmasters will have no problem setting up shop and selling their wares.
The ubiquitous Slider Revolution and Visual Composer plugins are bundled free, and some nice secondary features like mega menus, search engine optimization, and retina support add even more value.
Translation ready, as you’d expect, and well supported by the development team. Recommended! Obviously!More Info/Download
Created by the same team that put together WineHouse, above, WineShop is exactly what it claims to be: an ecommerce solution for wine sellers (or food, produce, and that kind of stuff) powered by WooCommerce. Four homepages are included, each with a distinct design, layout and flavor, and each boasting a lovely aesthetic that’s just right for the niche.
Beyond a comprehensive set of excellent features like SEO optimization, retina support, and a selection of custom widgets & shortcodes, WineShop also bundles a couple handy premium plugins you may already be familiar with: Visual Composer for code-free, front-end layout building, and Slide Revolution for assembling impressive, engaging homepage slideshows and presentations.
Plenty of options are packed into the admin, and WineShop is of course fully supported and optimized for modern mobile devices. Well documented and well supported with regular updates.More Info/Download
Stone Hill is our favorite type of theme: one that puts simplicity and UX above all else. It doesn’t clutter things up with unnecessary CSS/JS animations, or kowtow to overused web design trends & premium theme cliches, but instead provides a performance-optimized, content-focused, intuitive and sensible experience for users. Navigation is straight-forward and familiar, and the important bits are front-and-center.
Stone Hill includes the usual bonuses common to ThemeForest products — Visual Composer for pagebuilding and Slider Revolution for Slideshows — and includes full support for Mega Menus. The theme is SEO optimized and retina-ready for high res devices. One-click installation ensures a fast and stress free setup, and a useful back-end options panel allows users to brand and tweak the theme without touching a line of code. An excellent example of the less-is-more principle. Recommended!More Info/Download
White Rock is, without any doubt, the most popular of the WordPress wine themes available. It has over 3500+ sales on ThemeForest and nearly perfect 4.5 star rating. It’s easily one of the best looking themes available for fine dining establishments and wineries.
White Rock is a retina-ready, fully responsive theme that comes with restaurant menu templates, easy color customization (unlimited colors) and lots more. The huge customer base means this one will be round for a while, too, and will see more updates and feature add-ons than many of the other themes on our list.
Video documentation and demo content is included, making this one especially attractive to WordPress beginners.More Info/Download
Good Ol’ Wine
Good Ol’ Wine is a gorgeous, classy, responsive theme perfectly matched for wine enthusiasts and wineries.
Compatibility with WooCommerce gives you the option of online sales, and support for the Events Calendar plugin means you’ll be able to easily schedule wine tastings and other wine-related gatherings.
Good Ol’ Wine is particularly easy to customize, using WordPress’s built-in Theme Customizer to preview the changes you make in real-time. A color picker gives you lots of control over accent and background colors.
Video documentation is also included.More Info/Download
Wine is an elegant, expertly designed theme by AVAThemes on ThemeForest. Fully responsive, it comes with over thirty page templates and provides you with five lovely homepage layouts to choose from.
Bundled with the Visual Composer plugin for drag & drop page building, the Wine theme also supports WooCommerce. Extensive theme options in the admin give you added control over the front-end appearance and layout.More Info/Download
Agritourismo WordPress Wine Theme
A lovely, earthy palette – a warm, inviting color scheme – earns the AgriTourismo theme a spot on this list. Responsive as you might expect, and retina-ready, this one looks great anywhere.
It includes Visual Composer for page building and WooCommerce for setting up a shop and selling your wares. The premium plugin LayerSlider is also bundled as a bonus.
Photo galleries, custom shortcodes, unlimited sidebars and an events page are also provided. Good value.More Info/Download
WineStore or, The Vineyard
The final wine specific theme on our list is WineStore. Or maybe it’s called The Vineyard. It’s a bit difficult to tell. Anyway, we do know that this newer theme is responsive, easy to use, and comes with six pre-made homepage layouts to choose from. It’s bundled with a selection of free plugins: Revolution Slider, Quickshop, a Product Color Filter plugin, a slider plugin, and a shortcode plugin.
WineShop is WooCommerce compatible (good news for a e-commerce theme), with 10 custom widgets, and lots of room for customization via the theme options on the back-end. You know, unlimited colors and all that! Buy it! Or don’t. We just felt you should see it.More Info/Download
The Brew House
Our favorite brewery theme at the moment is The Brewhouse. The contemporary, stylish design is perfect for building a website for your pub, café, bar, restaurant, or whatever. Compatibility with the FoodPress plugin allows you to showcase your restaurant’s menu in anintuitive and visually pleasing way.
The Brewhouse also supports the Booked! plugin, allowing you to accept reservations and bookings online. Also fully compatible: WooCommerce, for setting up your own online store. Good stuff.
Visual composer, Revolution slider, and Swiper Slider are included.More Info/Download
A fairly recent addition to our WordPress brewery themes roundup, Moonshiners is a fun, visually engaging theme with a load of character and style. It’s a fantastic option for anyone looking for a light-weight, easy to install theme.
But that doesn’t mean it’s not versatile: three distinct homepage layouts are provided, one for breweries, a second for distilleries, and a third for pubs. Users also have an unlimited blog and portfolio layouts to work with. Color options are in the back-end, and a PSD is provided if you really have to get in there and re-work some things. Though, frankly, I’m not sure why you would: this is one of our favorite designs on our list, and I’d probably recommend against changing it too much.
Both Visual Composer and Revolution Slider are bundled – par for the course at this point – and Contact Form 7 is supported. Video tutorials are included.More Info/Download
Brewery: A WordPress Theme for Beer Makers
Built on the the robust Foundation 5 framework, the simply-titled Brewery theme is fast, modern and puts user experience first. The stylish design is perfect for breweries, hobbyists and beer enthusiasts in general.
Brewery includes both a beer directory, to showcase your product, and a store directory so thirsty visitors will know where to find you. With full support for the popular WooCommerce plugin, Brewery will allow you to start selling right away.
The theme is responsive, speed optimized, and easy to customize (thanks to WordPress Live Customizer integration).More Info/Download
Growler WordPress Brewery Theme
Now for the WordPress brewery themes. As far we can tell, Growler is the best available, in terms of design – it’s contemporary, flat and tasteful – and in terms of features.
Growler is responsive and retina-ready, as you might expect from such a new theme, and it’s easy to customize. It’s a fully capable e-commerce theme and features an events post type with an easy to use calendar.
Translation ready, and performance optimized. Built on top of the popular HTML5 Boilerplate. Photoshop files are also included, for when you want to take this lovely theme and make it ugly as sin with your own inept design ability.More Info/Download
Here’s where things get a bit dicey. The next theme we’ve got for you, “Premium Beer WordPress Theme”, and the last three brewery themes on our list, are TemplateMonster products. They look fantastic, as TemplateMonster themes often do, but be aware that they’re best suited for non-developers interested in extra services like installation and hosting.
If you’re not sure how to upload your own logo using theme settings, and would rather just pay someone else to handle it, TemplateMonster is for you.
This theme is 100% responsive with useful theme options in the admin, and supports all the WP post formats. Translation ready and packed with 80+ shortcodes.More Info/Download
An elegant, minimalistic design that makes excellent use of white space and typography. Includes a slider, and standard features like responsiveness, 80+ shortcodes, and a few custom widgets for social sharing, recent comment etc. 600+ Google Fonts are also included.More Info/Download
The Best American Brewery
The Best American Brewery theme boasts a modern, flat design. It’s an understatement to say that that’s a trendy aesthetic now. Featuring large vector icons and shapes, and bold typography. TBAB includes many of the same features as the other TemplateMonster themes on our list: 80+ shortcodes, custom widgets, responsive, mobile-ready design, and theme options for adjusting fonts and layout.More Info/Download
