Answers.com adds Wine Lover’s Companion


Everyone and his mother knows and uses Wikipedia. I even saw the presenters use it on BBC News 24 last week. I’ve used it myself on a few occasions in researching for wine details, in many areas it is lacking though.

I have been a fan of Answers.com for awhile, they offer a little desktop widget thingy that is handy for quick look-ups. They have just added The contents of the New Wine Lover’s Companion by Ron and Sharon Herbst. This is brimming with definitions and terms from across the wine industry. Grape varieties, wine tasting terms, events and notes on history are all included. There is a pronunciation guide too.

It offers plenty of info but is not perfect - many grape varieties are not listed (the more obscure ones mainly) but it is a welcome addition to web-based search options.
