wine collection without leaving the house. Offering
subscribers the chance to trade wines from their
personal cellars for a bottle from their neighbor’s,
corktraders.com is a quick and easy way to get in
on special allocations, shop for rare wines and post

of Chilean reds you got for Christmas? Now you can
wine-swap it at corktraders.com

Pass the bottle at CorkTraders!
By Jennifer's Review

So — here we are on the verge of 2009… the economy is .. let’s say challanging…. the mind-set out there is not the best and for us wine-o’s .. we may be looking at 2 things; Curbing our wine fetish (gasp!…-clutching chest-… nnoooooo…) OR look for some alternatives to continue trying great wine! I say, let’s look at the alternatives because let’s face it… if you are a REAL wine lover… nothing is going to stop you from getting the wines you love! So why fight it?

With all that said — enter a great new website: CorkTraders.com ! The name is very descriptive of the concept that’s held within those virtual walls! Trading corks… or passing the bottle!


Pass the bottle globally

Have you ever been to a wine trading/swapping party? That’s a party where everyone invited brings a bottle of wine to swap with other guests at the party! You have an opportunity, depending on whose invited, to walk away with a new tasting challange on a wine you may never have had the opportunity to try!

Now, take that local party concept and multiply it times the World Wide Web and you have one heck of a wine swapping party! Wines you may never have a chance to get your hands on previously can now be yours. That is… if you have something someone wants elsewhere! Jeromy Roush (aka corktrader headmaster!) is the man behind this virtual concept of a world wide web trading “party”. Members of corktraders.com benefit because they don’t pay the typical commission or auction fees you might pay when trading/buying wines from other regions. The forums are full of great tips / advice on wine and it’s a great place to learn more about different wines you may be tempted to try!

Want to try a wine from Spice Route Wineries in South Africa? Contact fellow cork trader Eileen to see if she’d be willing to trade for a wine in your cellar! How about a 1999 bottle of Marchesi di Montecristo Nerello Del Bastardo Vino da Tavola? Someone’s got one!

So, think a little out of the wine bottle…… check out the site and start sharing your cellar to find some new great wines!

Corktraders made the news again. If you attended the Red Wine and Blues event in Redlands, check out a copy of Inland Living Magazine for pictures of us.
