Wine.com, the nation's largest online wine retailer, has been
ranked the #1 wine website in the world in a recent study conducted by
the Bordeaux Business School in Bordeaux, France (www.bordeaux-bs.edu). The
e-Performance Barometer study, first released at Vinexpo on June 20, is
now available in English (www.wine.com/bordeaux-bs-study)
and ranks the best retail wine websites as rated by Internet users in
seven countries: France, Spain, Germany, the UK, Italy, Australia and
Over 2800 Internet users completed an online questionnaire analyzing
28 sites from the same seven countries. In addition, 100 users per site
were observed performing specific navigational tasks, such as
purchasing wine. The study analyzed and ranked each site on seven
performance criteria: information, product offering, site design, ease
of use, security/privacy, interactivity/personalization and reliability.
Wine.com was ranked #1 in every single category.

of the rankings we've seen published in the past, this study is based on
an exhaustive, data-driven analysis of consumer preferences" said Rich
Bergsund, Wine.com CEO.
