Adegga, the Social Wine Discovery service, has recently introduced AVIN codes for wines. AVIN is a free unique code for wines, similar to an open ISBN for books. When naming wines, people often use different names while refering to the same wine. This is certainly true for Greek wines abroad, as the consumer can easily be confused about the name. I fully support Adegga’s efforts to unify wine names in a single database, thereby providing simple ways to access this information. I have already updated all tasting notes from the Dionysia with the AVIN codes, and plan to use AVIN codes on any new references to wines in this blog. This should be very helpful to pinpoint any single wine. Please comment your suggestions/feedback.
