C&C Wine: A Few Updates and New Features

StefanoOver the last weeks I have added a few new features, updates and enhancements to the wine-related part of Clicks & Corks that I hope readers will find helpful in navigating the growing content of the blog. Below is a summary of what’s new:

1. As requested by several readers, I have added symbol-based quality ratings and pricing information to all reviewed wines based on a scale from 1 to 5

2. I have added a new page that explains the quality ratings and pricing symbols

3. I have added a new index page with links to all reviewed wines, breaking them down by country and type and indicating their symbol-based rating and price point

4. I have slightly revisited the format of my wine reviews, moving my conclusions about the wine and its rating to the top of the post so if someone just wants to read the short of it, they can do so right away without having to scroll down to the end of the post – of course, those who enjoy learning more about the producer, the varieties, the appellation and how the wine did in my detailed ISA-compliant tasting, they can still do so by reading on!

5. I have created a new page listing those reviewed wines that in my view have the best quality to price ratio in the pricing bands (i) $20 and below and (ii) $21 to $40

6. I have updated the Grape Variety Archive with several new varieties: take the time to check them out!

That’s all for now: hope you find these changes helpful.

    Wow, you’ve done a wonderful job Stefano! I’ve already been a huge fan of your wine reviews but the new rating system makes it so easy to visually assess each review. Love it! By the way, I went to an ‘Italian natural reds’ wine tasting and discussion on Wednesday of this week, it was so wonderful! I have a growing appreciation for Italian wines now. I mentioned to the wonderful Sommelier running it (Jeremy Prus, http://www.gourmettraveller.com.au/events/restaurant-awards/2013/7/2014-gourmet-traveller-restaurant-awards-nominations/sommelier-of-the-year-jeremy-prus,-lalla-rookh,-perth,-wa/) that I read your blog for most of my Italian wine tips! 🙂
