helps you find a new favorite wine!

I have to honestly say that I find my favorite wines in two ways... by taste and by sight - I am a sucker for fabulous packaging that draws my eye when I head out to the store and I love tasting new wines at friends' houses.  I also love roaming around the Charleston Wine and Food Festival every year to discover new wines, but I couldn't tell you if the tannins are good or bad or if it's oak-y with a hint of cherry.  I know what I like and I will go back and buy the same wines again, until something else catches my eye or I meet a new wine at a party.  Did you know that 90% of us buy wines that we know - we've had to have tried it before... wouldn't it be great to be able to try new wines based on what you know you like, but haven't tried yet?

My favorite wine of all time is actually Kittling Ridge ice wine from near my home in Ontario, Canada - something that I was introduced to when I was much younger, and that I buy as a special occasion wine whenever I get home.  They also make an ice wine brandy that is to die for... especially when poured over vanilla ice cream, but that's a story for another post.  Unlike most of the other wines out there, ice wine is incredibly sweet and unlike anything else you've ever tasted... and it's one of those wines that calls for a special place and time... but for every day, I usually enjoy a Shiraz or a Merlot when I shop for a red wine, and a nice Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio when I'm looking for a white... but I'd love to be able to branch out and try more new things and that's where comes in!

Finding a site like allows me to take what I know that I like - certain types of wine and contries/regions that I have liked wines from - and uses what it knows to recommend wines I might like to try!  I can look for reds, whites or both and I can tweak my preferences as I go! Not unlike Netflix or Spotify for movies and music, learns about what you like and don't like and makes recommendations you can use to find your next favorite!  You can buy right on the site, or print out and take your list to your local wine store!   The other thing that I like is that is women-founded and women-lead!
