Buying wines on line in Europe

It turns out that one of our friends in Rome, Giulio, has a brother who sells wine on line.  He only delivers in Europe, but the website is so clever that we decided to post it on MagoGuide.com anyway.  The name is callmewine.com.  Besides, if you’re in Europe for a couple of weeks or a month, it might be worthwhile ordering and having your wine delivered.
callmewineWhat’s so clever about it?  You can get the wine list sorted all different ways including wine type, region, etc.  In addition, however, you can also get suggestions for wines based on what you’re cooking, the type of grape you’re interested in, and awards that have been won.  Finally, if you log in, it will keep track of what you’ve bought and mark your favorites.

Another feature that we enjoyed was the “Winery of the Week” post on the front page.  This is interesting information and made the wine buying experience even more personal.

Granted, the “What to Cook” feature on the front page is currently Italian only, but it provides pictures of the food and the names of the suggested wines are in bold, so English-only speakers should be able to figure it out.  And besides, you should be practicing your Italian anyway.

The prices seem good and the delivery costs reasonable.  Check them out.
