ABOUT ME

Name: VINORATER (aka VR)
Home: California, United States
About Me: WHY THIS BLOG? Truth is, it's getting harder to find good wine at an everyday price (around $12 and under). So I've trolled respectable sources far and wide (Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Food & Wine, Robert Parker, Stephen Tanzer, New York Times, and other strong reviewers) for the "best of the best-priced", and tried every wine personally before recommending it. I also only include wines that are fairly easy to find. Plus, I've added useful info on wine pairings, wine terms, and wine news and other interesting wine info. Let's share, and please pass on any recommendations, thoughts and critics... Cheers! VinoRater
