Vinopedia, a new wine search tool

Again? Not quite. You might have used vinopedia.com when it was called freewinesearcher.com.  the new version includes now 800,000 American wines and 600,000 European wines. Paul Mabray, from VinTank as well as Gary V praised its searchability quality in their tweets.

Let’s try to look for some wines. I used the “Refine Criteria” tool and requested a 2000 red wine at about $20 with a 91 rating in Napa Valley. Weirdly enough the system selected “Red wines younger than 2000 from Napa Valley rated at least 91 points”. My price point was ignored. I suppose it’s only the bugs of an early start and they’ll be corrected very soon. or I was a little clumsy using the tool!

There are several value added features I really enjoyed: the price alerts and the mobile access. Having a mobile access is very important nowadays when you’re a consumer. While standing in line or in a supermarket’s aisle it is so handy to be able to connect and get information.

Vinopedia.com is still a work in progress but it is a great tool that just needs some improvement. Good luck!
