About the site . . .

Winebork.com was originally written by the legendary Dr. Mark Alguard to collect the wine opinions of a group of Silicon Valley physicists and engineers who had been drinking wine together for more than 30 years. The site was begun for fun, but developed over time into a religiously maintained record of the group's wine tasting activities.

The group has dispersed in recent years and the site has been completely rewritten by me (H.T.); the collection of reviews is now more in the nature of a personal wine diary than a collection of group tasting notes. I post here opinions of each new wine I sample, though the site itself includes many of the earlier group reviews. The reviews are based on a leisurely pass through a full bottle of wine, and not on an isolated sip at a winery or formal tasting. The wines are often tasted blind, though not exclusively.

I'd love to hear your opinions as well. There's an email link in the the navigation bar. Email any comments you might have on a given wine and I'll add them to the review. (I've been forced to forego online feedback because of past external hacking issues with online forms).
