What Do You Want to Know?

Tell us about the hot topics in your world


So, it's time once again for me to try and guess what it is our professional users want to read about today. As it turns out, this simple task is one of the most challenging of my week.

With my usual wine content it's actually pretty easy to zero on a topic that will be interesting for both myself and my readers, but here I am faced with a different audience: a fragmented audience, a knowledgeable audience, and perhaps a jaded audience. So, I sit here and I spend time guessing what might interest you.

Wanna help a guy out?

Tell me what you want to discuss. I'd love to know what the hot topics are in your neck of the woods. What's going on in the tasting room, on the retail floor, or in the cellar? We have a big audience and it truly represents people employed in every facet of our sometimes frustrating, sometimes rewarding, and apparently very romantic and attractive industry. So, what is it you want to talk about? E-mail us and let us know. Until I know more about what you want, you're gonna get... more monthly stats!
So, here we go with some stats for the past 30 days.

What's been hot on Snooth? This includes the run-up to Valentine's Day, so if you want to know what people were looking for, and maybe make a mental note for next year, here ya go...

So, what does it all mean? Well, there are some trends: people are looking for sweeter wines, no matter what the pros say, or the people say, for that matter. Big brands are still popular. Sparkling wine is THE Valentine's Day drop of choice, and if it's pink and sweet even better -- though people will settle for just sweet. And people always drink Cabernet.

I'm sort of excited to see what happens as the weather warms up and whites start making an apppearance on these lists. What will be the surprising dark horse and will anything challnge Chardonnay's supremacy? We'll have to wait to see, but you'll be able to find out here at Snooth.

By the way, I don't know if you've noticed but every Friday we're featuring some of our favorite blog posts of the week in our e-mail. We've featured some of our favorite bloggers, but we would also like to know who you think deserves more recognition for their work. Send us your suggestions and recommendations!

  • Hi Guys,
    I'm a Swede living in Alanya, Turkey for the last five years. I and my wife are running a restaurant by the name of 'Taste', where we serve innovative international dishes and change the menu every day, depending on what we can get hold of.
    When it comes to wines, we have a major issue. Eventhough Turkey is one of the, if not the oldest, wine producing country in the world, their wines really need to be improved. We have tried at least 100 different wines and found like 10 that could work with a spagetti Bolognese and one and just one that you can enjoy on it's own. The producer is KOCABAG and the grape is Cabarnet Souvignon. Unfortunately they have a very small production. Best Regards Tord Lack
