A Better Website for Wine Lovers

Redesigned WineSpectator.com offers improved tools, easier use and more interactivity
Aug 5, 2009

As the wine community continues its vibrant growth online, WineSpectator.com is evolving to meet new needs and encourage more engagement among wine lovers. A redesign of the site, launched on Aug. 5, delivers improved tools, easier use and more interactivity.

Within the site itself, a fresh look showcases the unmatched breadth and depth of its content, from at-a-glance lists of new wine ratings to up-to-date vintage charts to games and expert Q&As. Improved navigation and a smarter site search, with results grouped by category, aim to help visitors handily find the information they need. A newly streamlined version of the Personal Wine List makes it easier for members to manage their wine cellars.

The addition of comments sections to many free-access news and feature stories invites more communication among wine lovers and interaction with Wine Spectator's editors. (Only members may post comments, but all visitors may read them on these articles.)

In addition, WineSpectator.com is reaching out to the wider Internet community through popular social media sites. Wine lovers can follow feeds of many of our free Web site updates—including Daily Wine Picks and breaking news—on our Twitter page, and become fans of Wine Spectator on Facebook, where they can get site updates and interact with other fans. The addition of a "share" option on WineSpectator.com's free articles makes it easier for visitors to post links on their own pages or favorite sites.

Originally launched in 1996, WineSpectator.com is the authoritative source for wine information on the Web. Original content—including feature stories and selected wine ratings that are free to all visitors—is posted daily. Members enjoy access to more than 217,000 wine ratings, along with exclusive tasting reports, auction prices, editors' blogs and the Insider and Advance ratings newsletters. For more information, take a site tour.

Note to WineSpectator.com members: To access all the features of our new site, you will need to log in again, even if you had previously selected the "keep me logged in" option. If you forgot your password, please visit Customer Care.
