Wine Shopping
Directories, Lists, and Portals

Links newly added are indicated by ""new".". This page was last checked and updated July 24, 2011 (many links that were not working or had devolved to become either useless or mere portals for blatant sales-pitches were eliminated).

Some of the sites on this page employ databases to find, sort, and present contact information and/or links; most sites (like PfW) simply have pages of links. One common conundrum is to attempt to be comprehensive while employing some scheme to prevent the pages from becoming too-oversized for efficient browsing. Additionally, some server-based technologies seem to have difficulty maintaining logical organizational schemes for grouping and sorting their content ... (or lazy humans doing incomplete coding).
