What's a RSS Feed? This recent Internet technology - "Really Simple Syndication" or "RSS" for short - allows you to use simple software to subscribe to articles distributed by many of your favorite Websites. WineLoversPage.com is pleased to make a RSS feed available for your enjoyment.

The WineLoversPage.com feed offers a headline, brief summary and hotlinks to the full content of many of our frequently updated features, including newly published articles by contributors, my 30 Second Wine Advisor and Wine Advisor FoodLetter, my wine-tasting reports, and links to hot topics as they develop on our Wine Lovers' Discussion Groups.
To access RSS Feeds, you must either download and install a small "RSS Aggregator" or "News Reader" program on your computer, or subscribe to a Web service like "My Yahoo!" that will assemble RSS feeds for you online. A RSS Aggregator behaves somewhat like a combination of your Web browser and your E-mail program. Like a browser, it allows you to enter a Web address and view any RSS feed online. Like an E-mail program, it allows you to subscribe to specific feeds, which then arrive periodically in an E-mail-style format in which you see a list of headlines and may click any of interest to view the full page.
A very highly rated shareware RSS Aggregator is FeedDemon (http://www.bradsoft.com/.
As noted, My Yahoo! has a first-rate Web-based RSS aggregator. Other recommended Web-based options include RocketInfo.com (http://reader.rocketinfo.com/desktop/), Feedster (http://feedster.com/), and NewsGator (http://www.newsgator.com/),
