* Portraits of Grief

The New York Times has been publishing "Portraits of Grief," a series of profiles of some of the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks. The final daily profile appeared Dec. 31, but additional profiles will be published from time to time. All profiles will remain on NYTimes.com indefinitely, and a collection will be published in book form next year, with profits going to the Times Neediest Cases Fund.

The current collection includes an archival search engine searchable by name, company, city or keyword for profiles of the victims. (Registration is required for The New York Times site, but it is free. If you are not registered, simply fill in the form on your first visit.)

We were deeply touched by the stories of so many people who were lost in the terrorist attack. As wine lovers, we were particularly interested to see how many of them were in some way involved with wine, as a profession or personal interest. This collection of links includes selected profiles that included references to "wine" and "champagne."
