Get uncorked

For all wine lovers out there, there is a new site in town. Cork’d is created by Dan Cederholm and Dan Benjamin, two well-known design profiles in the blogosphere, and done in Ruby on Rails. It is a community, note book and shopping list for people who like wine. Simple as that, really.

In true Web 2.0 spirit, you may tag the wines, share your thoughts with fellow tasters, add some of them to your list of “drinking buddies”, subscribe to feeds and all that stuff. It also features blazing colors and large buttons, so you don’t miss any of the action even after a glass or two.

Check it out! Or rather, cork up!
