New rating system
Welcome to this week’s wine quiz here at Vino in Love. As usual there will be five questions of all difficulties. Simply use the comment section below to answer them.
But before we start with the quiz I want to inform you that we now use a rating system for wines that we review (from time time old tasting will get updated with a rating). Wines are rated on a scale from 1 to 5 where 5 stars correspond to the very best rating that a wine can achieve. The plugin that I now use is very useful because on Google search results the rating and the price will now be shown. Example:
It will probably take a few weeks though til it will show up properly on Google. That’s because Google will have to recrawl all pages and update them in its search results and sometimes that takes time. The rating will also appear at the bottom of every wine review. Wines rated with less than 2.5 stars are not recommended. Should you have questions and suggestions regarding the rating then you can post them in the comment.

I am looking for your feedback on this idea: guest blogging
Recently I thought about the idea of featuring a guest post every week/month. What do you think about this idea? Would you be interested in writing a guest post for Vino in Love? You have probably seen this feature from other blogs. If not here is how this would work:
- You, the guest author, will write an article with unique content (no republishing) which I will not edit without your permission.
- The content will be attributed to your name and you may link to your blog.
- Benefits for you: Reach out to a large, new audience. Benefits for me: Free, relevant and unique content.
- It is up to me to decide whether or not I will publish the article.
- The article should somehow relate to wine and be around 500 to 800 words long.
