Classicwines Gets a New Taste

classicwinesSince I’m a fan of drinking wine more than I am learning about it, you’re more likely to find me at the bar rather than hanging out in a virtual cellar.

But if you are a modern wine enthusiast who likes to talk bouquet and get wine suggestions from people with more (or less) experience than you, it’s time to pop the cork on ClassicWines.com.

Wineys can gather, interact and meet with people who are passionate about wine and wine lifestyles. The site prides itself on helping take the snobbery out of wines, a stigma that is often attached to the glass-bottled liquid grapes.

Classicwines allows you to browse for a specific bottle of wine , compare prices at online shops, and leave a ratings.

According to Mark Shay, founder of ClassicWines.com:

“People with a desire to learn and experiment with wine now have a new place to gather, interact and meet with people who are passionate about wine and wine lifestyles…The goal of this upgrade was to help our audience learn from each other, not just the experts.”

Registered users (21 and up, please) can create a ‘personal virtual cellar’, that lets you keep tasting notes, leave reviews and take advantage of other social networking tools.
