Able Grape a Wine Search Engine


Able Grape is a wine industry specific search engine. Currently it is in a beta version but Able Grape’s database is currently over 14 million pages. This is a great set forward for Wine 2.0 but will anyone use it?

I’m not sure that the ability to search for ‘Spain’ instead of ‘Wines from Spain’ will be a big enough time saver for me to switch from Google or Yahoo to Able Grape. All of Able Grapes searches are within the wine industry so all wine specific terms don’t needed to be added. A search for Mission Hill Winery could be entered as ‘Mission Hill.’

I’d make the move if Google couldn’t find what I was looking for because it’s my default search engine.
