VIN DU VIN

 

http://www.vinduvin.com/

 

A great website set by John Kesoglou (CEO), a wine lover of Greek origin. When John firstly got involved in wine visiting the wineries of Napa Valley in 1997, found out that there was no website that functioned as a database providing complete information about wineries and the regions where one can find them. Seeing this gap, he decided to start Vin du Vin in order to bring together wine consumers with wineries and vineyards around the world!
