A few days ago, we found a Spanish wine video site called, Vinus, a new start up covering Spanish wine, history and culture in a very hip and trendy way. Founded in the beginning of August, it has already published 3 videos, all of which feature a rapidly speaking female host covering a variety of 5 minute topics. The best way to describe the format is CNN meets Entertainment Tonight, adding some additional social media on the side like Twitter and Flickr.
Although we are very excited to see this new format, we do have a few critiques:
On the positive side, we sincerely hope that this program will help Spaniards boast about other wines in Spain other than Rioja! It will be interesting to see how successful this is and whether the non-web-savvy Spanish populous will adopt it as a reliable wine resource.
At this point, the service is only offered in Spanish with no indication of translating it into English in the future. So if you want to brush up on your Castellano (Spanish from Spain), check it out!
