This directory lists hundreds of wine-related Websites that I have found and enjoyed, and it features my candid comments about many of them. It is not an exhaustive list of every wine site on the Web, but it represents my best advice about a wide range of places to get good information about wine.

Each page of this directory features two categories: THE BEST OF THE WEB, for the sites that I consider most interesting and worth a visit; and THE REST OF THE WEB, where we review other noteworthy wine-related sites.

A directory like this requires the help of many people, and I am grateful to all the friends and colleagues who have pitched in to keep it up to date and especially to help create the most recent revision and update in April 2001.

Please note that clicking on the hotlink to any site outside Wine Lovers' Page will "spawn" a new browser window. When you're finished exploring, simply close the new window, and your original window will still be right here where you started.


To suggest a site for inclusion, recommend that we add a new category, or inform us about a link that's "broken" or changed to a new address, please send us E-mail at
