A bunch of other wine bloggers have already mentioned Vinolin but I thought that I’d add to the chorus. It’s a great one stop shop for what’s been happening in the wine blogosphere. I manage probably 120 wine RSS feeds in my Netvibes homepage, which was a bit of a pain to compile and takes a while to load, but now all I need is Vinolin. Nice job Pras.
Vinolin’s creator Pras is the lead developer for Inertia Beverage Group and I had a chance to have lunch with him last summer. We talked briefly about the project and I have to say it is looking a whole lot better than the alpha preview I saw back then (and it was pretty sexy even then).
One of the more interesting features of the site is that it displays a list of the the top 14 most frequently updated blogs. Perhaps it will motivate me and others to get back into daily posting so we can make the list. You never know!
Vinolin has the polish and the eye candy to attract a more mainstream wine crowd while highlighting some undiscovered wine bloggers. I would think the next step would be to create some buzz and traffic to the site. If Pras can do just that and garner some steady traffic to Violin it might just become the information hub for the vinosphere.
