Is there a place where I can find wines that are similar to another Wine.
Like they do at Barnes and Noble if you like this author than you may like this Wine ETC????
Would be a great tool, to find other wines that are similar

Have you had a wine that you have decided you like and you want to know about similar wines? Let us know what you have decided you like and I am sure a lot of forum members could make suggestions

Definitely...DUNCAN 906 is correct!
Also if you search on Snooth or other sites, for one wine, you are usually guided to similar wines.. Some sites actually say something like "Those who bought/liked/tasted/drank this wine, also bought / liked the following..."

Amour, your suggestion certainly sounds reasonable, but I could not find one of those "Those who liked this also liked . . ." sections in the Snooth wine lookup. If I am wrong and can't see something right under my nose, I am very OK with somebody correcting me.
However, off to the right there is a box that links to lists that might be helpful to you, MRiley. For the sake of example, let's say that you liked the Robert Mondavi 2009 Napa Valley Fume Blanc and you would like to expand to something similar--whatever they heck that might mean ;-). If you look above you'll see a box below the Snooth logo that says "Search millions of wines." If you type "Mondavi Fume Blanc 2009," and click on the Search button (has the magnifying glass icon) you will get a list of three candidates. The second one is what we want. So, click on it and you get to the detail page for that wine. If you scroll down a tad and look to the right you'll see a box that says "Sauvignon Blanc Top Lists." These are lists of wines, prepared by Snooth, experts, participants and mentors, that do, in fact, have similarities to the target wine. In this case the lists are:
- Sauvignon Blanc from Chile by Constance Chamberlain
- Top 10 Sauvignon Blanc Producers by Gregory Dal Piaz
- Wines Less Traveled: Sauvignon Blanc by Matt Walker
- Sancerre & Pouilly Fume by Barberolo
So, I think these lists will give you some good ideas. Often, when you look at these lists, you will see that other Snooth participants have added additional comments.
Of course, as Duncan suggests, you can always post your specific question here on the forum. Believe me, we love to show off.
