About Wine-Searcher

'The most successful, and seriously useful, price comparison website' (Jancis Robinson MW).

Search Engine

The Wine-Searcher database and search engine bring together wines and prices from merchants around the world. It was created in 1999, and is now used by millions to locate, compare and purchase wines. The database grows daily and is constantly monitored for quality. Manual and automated procedures are run daily to remove lists that are out-of-date or incorrect in any way. If you are a merchant or winery, it's free to add your price list.

Wine-Searcher answers such questions as: The search engine offers two levels of service:

Free: prioritizes the results of Wine-Searcher's sponsors. If none of our sponsors list the searched-for wine, we still try to give a result wherever possible.

PRO: shows all results for the searched-for wine. As well as the added searching power, a PRO account offers a host of other useful features.
