Press Release Summary: Corktraders, Inc. has formalized the age-old concept of wine trading by creating an online community where enthusiasts can come together to swap their wine, knowledge and experiences.
Press Release Body: Redlands, CA - October 13, 2008 - The world's first online wine swapping community, Corktraders.com, was launched on Thursday, October 9th. Corktraders.com is a subscription-based website where members throughout the world can browse one another's cellars to locate wines they would like to "swap" for their own without any monetary exchange. The community was created based on an informal concept that has existed among novice wine enthusiasts, advanced collectors and even industry leaders for years: swapping wine. Corktraders.com enables connoisseurs to expand their trading network and find fellow swappers and wines for trade outside of their immediate circle of friends and acquaintances.
Corktraders.com intends to bring the most novice wine enthusiasts together who are looking to swap for pure entertainment, along with serious collectors and industry affiliates who receive exclusive wine allocations and wouldn't mind trading a portion of their wines to try something new. Restaurants and wine boutiques that would like to swap out inventory may also find Corktraders.com useful for their business.
The website's "Main Cellar" is a comprehensive list of all wines that have been added by members, which makes searching for a specific wine simple for Corktraders subscribers. Once members locate a wine or wines they would like to "swap" for their own, the website allows them to offer a trade and negotiate with counter offers, if necessary, until both parties are satisfied. Corktraders.com leaves it up to members themselves to arrange the physical exchange of wines from one party to the other; however, the site provides links for information regarding "safe trading" and shipping laws.
Along with bringing members together to trade their wines, Corktraders.com also provides discussion forums, wine reviews, wish list features, and members can upload wines with no intention of trading but rather to showcase their cellar to the community.
Membership dues for Corktraders.com are as follows: $9.99/month, $25.99/quarter or $99.99/annual. All memberships include a 14 day free trial and unlimited trading and access to the website. Corktraders.com does not charge any additional commission or transaction fees.
