Greetings from, now 1,408 winery listings strong! We broke the 1,400 mark.

A trip down memory lane. You are reading the 111th edition of the WineRelease monthly newsletter. Published on the 15th of the month since May 2000 (and proudly less than a dozen 'day late' issues). On Saturday, July 08, 2000 at 5:59 PM, Jeff Winick was the first subscriber that didn't know me (previous subscribers were all family and friends). I emailed him last month to see if he is still reading (and ask if it was okay to mention him) and he replied "I've been an avid subscriber of yours since the moment I signed up back in 2000. I'd be honored to have you make reference to my status as your first subscriber. Congratulations on a great newsletter. Keep up the good work. Cheers, Jeff Winick"

Thanks Jeff!

And we added a blog to our site to allow feedback on different news snippets: We will add to it in the future, especially when reporting our survey results.

And since we are on the subject of surveys, we are thinking of three different survey topics, to get your preferences, for the near future:
  1. Winery mailing lists
  2. Wine shopping
  3. Wine blogs
If you have questions you want to see included, reply to this email.

And if you want to fall in love with wine all over again, watch this beautifully produced 13 minute wine documentary (if it doesn't show in your email, click the "CRUSH, a B. Napa Film" link):
