Unverified wines?

Posted by dmichalek, Nov 1, 2013.

What does it mean when the wines are unverified? How do you verify that a particular listing is accurate and listed from the appropriate winery?

I think that this part of Snooth should work like a Wiki. There is a lot of verified listings with awfully wrong data; wrong vintage, mixed labels,  a chilean red listed as a rosé from Toro Spain. Things like those.

Diego is right here in that the original intent was to have this part of Snooth function more or less as a wiki We have several ways to 'verify' a wine. The most obvious is when someone associated with the brand comes in and marks it as verified. Usually this is quite accurate. The second is when someone comes in and completes a wine's details. We assume that if someone is spending the time to add all the details to a wine that they are doing so with the correct data and this method is also quite accurate. The finale method involves duplication from multiple sources. We get a lot of our data from retailers, and they in turn get their data from other outside sources. Unfortunately there are not infrequent occurrences of incorrect data for specific wines that are fed to multiple retailers via a single data clearinghouse. That means that we might get twenty distinct feeds from retailers all listing a wine incorrectly, but with identical information. We take these 20 duplicate feeds to mean that the information on this wine is correct, and that yields a significant number of verified yet incorrectly listed wines. 


We've been trying to fix this problem for years now, and there is no easy work around. Any suggestions would of course be welcome!

All wikies allow that anyone could edit them, whole articles or just a word. Maybe Snooth should do that.

It's have written and translated whole articles in wikipedia. I  would not mind to change a few words in some obviously wrong entry.

Diego, the editing and validation schemes in Wikipedia are actually fairly sophisticated. It's not a case that just anybody can write just anything.

Perhaps a Specs sheet from Snooth, with active monitoring by an editor would be useful?!

I agree with Diego that there are a lot of errors on the database. I have just finished a bottle of Chinon  I bought on my trip there back in May so I wrote up a review for Snooth as usual and then decided to check what I had said about the last bottle of Chinon I had had. This was the Domaine du Colombier back in July 2013 and I have discovered that my review of this wine is now reporting to a winery in Vacqueyras,hundreds of miles away from Chinon.

Somebody has just recently reviewed  Chateau Paul Mas Gres de Montpellier Clos de Savignac.There are contact details for this winery including a website but the description is of a Spanish sherry producer

Im looking Into the chinon now as well.

Greg That is the one. I looked at this review and then clicked on the winery. The address and website seem right but the description is of a Spanish sherry producer
