A new dating site aimed at wine lovers has been launched by Francoise Pauly, the founder of wine jobs website VineaJobs.

VineaLove is aimed at wine aficionados and professionals alike, and will be available in several languages. It has already signed up eight ambassadors – all wine professionals or with a wine background – to promote the site in the Netherlands, Japan, Romania, Turkey, USA, Italy, Morocco and France.
‘There are so many dating websites out there, but I could only find one small one in the US that is aimed at wine lovers, and that is closed to anyone outside America,’ Pauly told Decanter.com.
‘Yet there are over 2200 groups with wine in the title on LinkedIn alone, and wine lovers are already sharing ideas on countless blogs and social media sites. This combines the social media aspect with a dating website.’
The first 1,000 members will receive free membership, and fees after that will be between €15-€18 per month depending on the country. So far 100 members have joined, before the beta version of the site goes live this Sunday, 16 June.
