Top 100 wine sites in April 2011

Here is the quarterly ranking of web sites. Webmasters need not apply as the contest includes all sites. The table shows only the top 100. Selection is done from public website metrics. These figures permit to include all sites — not just blogs.

Herebelow is an analysis of the results.

Trackers and apps

In the previous installment I started adding wine applications and tasting note pads. The list should now be complete. The wine non-blogs that stand at the top of this top 100 are: Snooth, Cork’d (no longer updated), Cellar Tracker, eRobertParker, Vinquire, Winezap.

How to participate

Websites are automatically included in the contest as soon as I learn of their existence. To be eligible to the next issue of the Cellarer wine directory, the below conditions must be met:

  1. The main topic should be wine.
  2. Producing estates and wine sellers are excluded. Some of them run wonderful websites but the type of information is different.
  3. The purpose is to present sites with articles. This is why inventories of tasting notes (trackers) or cellar applications are excluded.

If you disagree with the directory criteria, please comment below or e-mail me.

You can follow the directory evolution by subscribing to the feed on websites blog RSS.
