To keep you up to date on our continuing progress since we began publishing and to explain why we are asking for donations: We are now close to celebrating our 6th year on the Internet! When The Wine Cellar Insider debuted in June 2010, we started out with about 1,800 wine tasting notes, 300 pages on various chateau, wineries and other wine related topics with perhaps 1,500 images and 100 posts. We were also on a shared hosting environment, which for those of you that have been readers for a while now will recall, it took quite a bit of time for you gain access to the website with those slower servers. Today, that is no longer the case! As I am sure you noticed, we have just gone through an extensive redesign. We are using a state of the art design and as we are now completely responsive, our site should work perfectly on your mobile devices and or tablets.
Currently we provide over 1,000 detailed, searchable pages of exclusive content on a myriad of wine topics and issues, Bordeaux chateaux and other wineries in other regions including Chateauneuf du Pape , The Rhone Valley and California . Those pages are always being updated on a continuous basis. By 2016, we offer more than 12,000 unique, exclusive. searchable wine tasting notes! We are also closing in on 700 posts and don’t forget, you have more than exclusive 5,000 photographic images on the site too!
