I’ve just read an interesting post over on TechCrunch about several new Web 2.0 Wine Sites.
Given that I killed off Winesurvey.org because of a lack of interest, I wonder whether these sites will do much better?
cork’d looks like it might have some momentum. It’s certainly got the Web 2.0 look and feel, and more reviews than I ever managed. I do like the tags for flavours (one of the best uses for tags I’ve ever seen), and Dan Cedeholm (I thoroughly recommend his books) is one of the guys behind cork’d, so the pedigree is good.
I do wonder if these sites will run into the problem I discovered – it’s hard to write a review of wine without drinking it, and not many people drink wine in front of their computer.
