Your friend the oenophile brought a great wine to dinner last night. You loved it but couldn’t hang onto every detail she rattled off — the name and slope grade of the vineyard, what kind of soil makes up the slope — but you know the producer, (say, Littorai), and you‘ve got to have a bottle for yourself. Enter “Littorai” into Wine-Searcher’s search field, and you’ll find prices and contact information for merchants waiting for you to snatch it up. The search can be refined to merchants located five miles from your home, or to the seaside hamlet where you’ll be on vacation next week, or to Paris, Buenos Aires, London — anywhere you may go for business or pleasure. Wine-Searcher’s listings are updated twice a week and include auction prices and winery-direct prices. A comprehensive list of grape varieties helps anyone tell Barbera from Bondara. It is also a great resource for educational information on wine regions of Europe, the United States, the Southern Hemisphere, and the ever-expanding wine-making territory.
