Likelii: Recommendations For Wine Lovers & Explorers
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, then you know I like my wine, but though I’ve been learning a lot about wines venturing beyond my usual white variations and even have a few red favorites now, I still am a novice when it comes to knowing what wine to purchase.
It’s hard to keep track of all the great wines out there and I don’t always have someone around to provide me with a good recommendation that fits my taste.
In comes Likelii.com, a wine recommendation site with all kinds of wine varietals from chardonnay to pinot gris. The site is easy to use. You start by simply clicking on your most favorite wines (red, white, or mix) and answer a few questions to better assess your preferences in wine. Once completed, you are directed to a list of recommendations, which not only include perfect pairing options, but also a purchasing option right from the site itself.
You can rate the wine and if you like it, you can save it to your profile for future reference (something I so terribly needed!) and you can learn about topics ranging from wines based on destinations to wine trends.
I really like the fact that Likelii is a women-founded, women-led start-up that aims to help wine drinkers like myself, who want explore and try new wines. By simply noting one or two wines you have enjoyed in the past, Likelii’s search engine can recommend wines personalized to your tastes.
Now, for this review I must disclose, I was offered the opportunity to taste wines selected through the Likelii site (I know, tough job). If you would like to win the opportunity to try out the site and select some wine as well (i.e. FREE WINE), then check out the giveaway on the Likelii Facebook page through December 31, 2013.
Readers will have the chance to win one of three gift certificates worth $100 just for trying out the website and completing a short survey. Three winners will be chosen on 1/4/13.
It’s a pretty cool site that I think will make it a lot easier for your to select wine that best fits your palate, while at the same time learning about other options you might have never even known to consider. Give it a whirl and cheers!
