Lovers Can Meet Locally Now
both beginning wine drinkers and connoisseurs alike, LocalWino.com
provides a well-organized online platform for local wine lovers of
all levels to discuss, research and discover the world of wine in
the non-threatening free sharing environment of a community forum.
distinguishing feature of the site as opposed to other online wine
forums is the local organization of the forum by cities within
specified states. This allows users to share, find, and discuss
details about wine within their own community. In addition to the
discussion forum, the site serves as a wine information portal for
various links and resources to the overall wine industry.
owner, James Matuszewski, explained, “After being a part of various
online wine forums, I saw a great need for a more organized format
for the type of discussions that were going on.” He feels as though
his site is catching the trend of online local community building.
“Look at what
CraigsList has done for people wanting to sell or barter (i.e. eBay)
without having to pay to ship all over the country…local wine
communities are very tight and always looking for ways to get
together and share their wine experiences or discoveries.”
In addition to
being set up by state and city, the discussion forums are very
smartly organized by subject as well. Self-proclaimed “winos” can
discuss general information about wine, wine shops & resources,
restaurant wine lists, wine clubs, wine travel or more wine & food
specific tasting subjects.
There is even a
social aspect of the forum where singles or couples can find each
other to get together for glass or two at the local wine hot spot.
“I wanted to
create as thorough and friendly a discussion forum as possible
without making it too overwhelming to its members,” stated
Matuszewski. “It really poses the opportunity for people to get more
personal with their love of wine and the possibility of local
contact. It’s exciting, and no one else is doing this.”
The site and
the forum are completely free of charge to its visitors or members.
As users log-in or register, they choose their region (state) and
then are given a prompt to choose their individual locale. Members
can also easily view or post to any of the forums designated by city
and find information about other locations as well.
