Miles Raymond was on to something. Yes, the protagonist of Sideways was divorced, unsuccessful, neurotic, and had a bit of a drinking problem. But he knew one thing: It’s hard to beat a good bottle of wine shared with a good friend.
Isn’t that all any of us want, really? If only life imitated art. Le sigh.
But life is about to blow art out of the water: Enter Grapeshare.
Starting in the next few months, you’ll be able to share the wine you love (and the wine you regrettably don’t) with friends online through Grapeshare.
Grapeshare helps connect people with wine. You can think of Grapeshare in many ways (“super neat-o” comes to mind): It’s kind of like Twitter or Goodreads, but just for oenophiles. It’s kind of like a wine bar, but one that goes wherever you go and lacks pretentious servers. It’s definitely all kinds of awesome.
Here’s a little taste (no, that won’t be the last drinking joke in this post):
We know: it looks freaking amazing, and you’re thinking, “Well hey, I think
Grapeshare might be my kind of place. How do I get on this awesome train?”
Easy. Go to the website – which you’ll want to bookmark, obviously – and sign
up with your email address to get updates. You can also follow us on Twitter
(@grapeshare) and like us on Facebook (search for Grapeshare). Check out our blog for wine tips and stories, and to keep updated on new features yet to be uncorked (you were warned).
There is so much more exciting stuff to come, we almost cannot stand it. We’re
practically dancing around at the thought of what’s in store, and we promise it’s
not because we just finished off a delightful bottle of Sineann Pinot Noir.
We can’t help but think that Miles Raymond would have been a lot happier if he’d
had Grapeshare in his life. He may even have found a Merlot he could stomach
– maybe. But you don’t have to face a bleak, Grapeshare-less existence. Just
connect with us, and we promise you days of wine and happiness, in more
convenient form than a Napa Valley vineyard.
