WinePosts is a natural extension of the VinCellar community platform, because it allows users to go beyond writing individual tasting notes and now gives them the power to share all aspects of a story or experience around a selection of wines.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 3, 2009
Vinfolio, the foremost source for fine wine, announces the launch of WinePosts, an exciting new social networking feature that builds upon the community platform in VinCellar, the company’s free online cellar management application. Named the most innovative wine social network by Vintank, the wine industry digital think tank, VinCellar offers wine collectors and enthusiasts a robust multimedia platform to track and share information about wine. The addition of WinePosts now provides users the ability to share their experiences with wine including photos, videos and traditional text opinion on both single wines, as well as groups of wines.
“Part of enjoying wine involves sharing your experiences and learning from others,” says Vinfolio Founder and CEO , Stephen Bachmann, “WinePosts is a natural extension of the VinCellar community platform, because it allows users to go beyond writing individual tasting notes and now gives them the power to share all aspects of a story or experience around a selection of wines.” VinCellar users can create WinePosts about any topic and then personalize their post with tasting notes, photos, videos and links to detailed wine pages on Vinfolio’s site. These experiences can then be shared on VinCellar, Facebook, Twitter and other social networks through a unique URL for each WinePost.
“The best part about developing features like WinePosts for the community is that users end up defining them,” says Jay Moore, Vice President of Marketing. “We anticipate the community will find unique ways of using Wineposts that will generate lively comments and engage even more users. And what a wonderful way to share holiday wine and food experiences.”
Through VinCellar, Vinfolio has fostered the growth of a wine-focused community of collectors and enthusiasts who have written over 30,000 wine tasting notes. WinePosts, adds new depth to the other community features in VinCellar including an expansive platform for bloggers, Facebook and Twitter integration, as well as an iPhone-optimized site.
