Information

PfW RECOMMENDS
WineAccess does not sell wine, per se, but bills itself as "the most complete shopping guide to fine wine on the web..." In fact, it is a sophisticated data base that integrates a very large list of wines with reviews and information from professionals and amateurs and a network of merchant sources, customized by ZIP code. Well-designed and easy to navigate.

PfW RECOMMENDS Wine Release logo. Wine Release lists imminent offerings from over 2000 wineries.

PfW HIGHLY RECOMMENDS Winesearcher logo. WineSearcher logo.WineSearcher is a regularly-updated database of containing hundreds of thousands of wine listings from thousands of merchants world-wide. Both fast and very user-friendly, if a wine is not listed here, it probably can't be found. Also handy for assessing the value of a bottle or cellar, the "Free Mode" limits searches to sponsoring retailers (over 150); "Professional Mode" requires an annual fee for full access.

PfW RECOMMENDS
WineZap lets you find, price, and compare wines online across hundreds of retailers in the U.S.A.; also offers various browsing modes to search by good value, food match, gift suitable, etc.
