About this website
WineLoversPage.com is dedicated to the premise that fine wine is a feast for all the senses -- including the mind.
And that you don't have to be a snob -- or wealthy -- to appreciate wine's pleasures.
We give you objective consumer-oriented tips on wines of good value, and make you a part of our international online community of wine lovers who enjoy intelligent talk about good things to eat and drink.
Whether you're new to the world of wine, an expert wine taster or a wine professional, you'll find something to interest you on The Wine Lovers' Page.
More than an online copy of a printed wine magazine, we're a new kind of information medium -- with Web interactivity.
Stop by to check the tasting notes and articles we publish daily -- but stay for much more! Thanks to online technology -- our field for nearly 15 years -- you get a flexible site that you tailor to fit your own level of wine knowledge, interests and needs. You can even participate as a reporter, writer and commentator!
Check out our Wine Lovers' Questionary, presenting the world of wine as a clear, organized online encyclopedia with links to the answers you seek. The Wine Lovers' Lexicon doesn't just describe the most common wine words in clear, simple terms but tells how to pronounce them. Other popular features include our Quick Online Tasting Course, covering the wine-tasting basics; and the Wine and Food Matching Engine to help you find the perfect wine to go with your dinner.
The Wine Tasting Toolbox gives novice and enthusiast alike all the resources you'll need to host a wine-tasting party in one easy list, including tasting forms you can print out for your own use.

Our fully searchable archives include notes on more than 50,000 wines -- by far the largest body of serious, consumer-written wine reports on the Internet.
