Your Road Map to the New Zachys.com!
To say that we are excited about the new Zachys.com would certainly be the understatement of the year!! When Zachys launched it's first web site in 1999 (Almost 10 years ago) it created great buzz and energy around the store....and we've done it again.
After 7 months of intensive work from the "NextGen" team (Named "NextGen" for the next generation of zachys.com ) we are extremely proud to launch this site. Built from the ground up we wanted to make sure the site had all the functionality that is necessary to run today's Zachys.... and If I have to sit in another day-long meeting in a locked conference room with story boards and flow charts I am going to scream!!!
Nothing is ever perfect from the start, and we realize that the site still has a few mechanical hiccups which we are addressing on a daily basis.
As you take the time to work your way through our new web site you will notice that it has quite a few new features and we thought it would be helpful to give you a highlight of all the new bells and whistles...
New Search Engine - By far one of the most exciting parts of the new site is the dynamic search tool that has been implemented. We have partnered up with a patented search engine technology that currently powers some of the nation's largest retailers...if you're going to do it you should really DO IT was our philosophy. You can now search and mix/match in any of the following categories... Click here to view a quick tutorial

We realize there will be a learning curve with the change of our site and how wines can be searched but we're confident once you get to know the new navigation you'll be pleasantly surprised at the ease of use. Here's a testimonial from one of our customers.
"...the search functionality is really strong...A simple “yquem” search yielded all of your selections. This is huge when it comes to trying to find a wine quickly, which has become a task at other sites...Best of luck with the new site." Brian 10/08
