Frequently Asked Questions
This is our ongoing Frequently Asked Questions. Use this form to contact us
if you'd like any questions answered that aren't listed herein.
- What is the purpose of this site?
LaWineClub was initially created as a central clearing house for Tasting Notes (TNs), which are reviews of wine. If you have
ever tasted any wine and have an opinion on it, we welcome your input. Feel free to add your own tasting note and share your
experience with others.
- Is there a local community surrounding this web site?
Yes and no. The site exists to address an international audience online with its TN database, and most of us participate in
various forums all around the net, but you will also find articles
relative to a regional wine community in the New Orleans area. This is where the site is located and developed and so we also
add information on local happenings and related news.
- Can anyone contribute to the site?
Absolutely! This is the purpose of the site. Suggest articles/news/editorial and please feel free to post your TNs here. We
are providing tools so that those who post their TNs here can easily cut-and-paste and export the data into a variety of other
systems. This is an "open source" system encouraging the free exchange of information.
- Who's behind LaWineClub.com?
This site is run by a grass roots group of wine enthusiasts who are donating their time and energy to create a nice place in cyberspace where people can come together and discuss wine. At present there are no commercial sponsors and we work hard to make the site as objective as possible
- Are the people behind LaWineClub.com affilliated with any other web site or anyone in the industry?
Nope. We all frequent a variety of web sites. The author of the custom system here, Mike, is a programmer by trade and
is donating his time to building the site with no initial commercial support. Perhaps in the future we can strengthen our
ties to other players in the industry, but we intend to do so in a manner such that we do not alienate anyone. This is a public
service first and foremost.
