May 24, 2011 – MyWinePal has updated the Wine Reviews page to be queried on multiple criteria as well as producing an interactive map of the winery location (http://mywinepal.com/wine-reviews/).
In the previous version of MyWinePal’s page a static Excel spreadsheet was available for wine enthusiasts to view and download. The new Wine Reviews page uses a database with query form that now allows you to select wines based on:
- Wine Label
- Winery Name
- Country / Region
- Wine Rating
- Review Date
- Colour / Style
One or more of these criteria can be combined and the results of the MyWinePal reviews will be presented. If a winery location is available, a “Map It” button will be visible, which allows you to see the location of the winery in a separate map pop up window. Aerial imagery can also be turned on to see the winery land.
Karl from MyWinePal said "People love interactivity and the ability to see places on a map. Once you select a wine, you can view the winery location and imagine the land, the sun on the grapes and more that went into producing the wine".
