Wine Finder

Welcome to the Wine PocketList VinFinder

Here’s where you can search and sort to create your customized “Wine PocketList,” and save it in your own online cellar. Create and save multiple lists, and access saved lists at any time. Print them out to accompany you to the bottle shop or grocery store as you hunt down that perfect wine.

Refine your search through whatever criteria you choose using the comprehensive “VinFinder Search.” Or, members can “Quick Search” our database by winery to find a particular wine.

Here’s how the WinePocket List works:

Step 1: Choose a range of wines and prices that you like.
Step 2: Sort them any way you want: by price, type, region, winery, etc.
Step 3: Save the Results in your private “virtual cellar”.
Step 4: Print shopping lists and purchase the perfect wines for you.

VinFinder Search

To customize your search, choose as many or as few fields as you like (Price, Grades, Wine Types, etc.). The more stringent your parameters, the fewer wines you will get in your list. Please keep in mind that while the free trial shows only five wines in the search results, it will tell you how many wines are in our database that fit your parameters. Members get complete results.

This means that many of the wines you’ll find on the shelf simply don’t measure up.

Whatever your passion for wine, (Australian WineCalifornia WineFrench WineItalian Wine or any other wine…) our wine reviews will help you understand which wines are really the best for you.
