Wine Search calculates the level of mark-up made by a restaurant. Use Wine Search to find out the best value wines on a list, so you can order your wine with confidence. Wine Search also tells you the main grape variety and region of the wine being searched for. You can enter a specific vintage of a wine, or let Wine Search find the prices of different vintages for you.
All you do is type in the name of the wine, and (optionally) the list price that the restaurant is quoting; Wine Search calculates the mark-up level for you. You can even enter the service charge too if there is a fixed service charge applied at the restaurant, and Wine Search will adjust the mark-up level to reflect this. Wine Search copes with sales tax/VAT too.
By knowing the mark-up level that the restaurant is applying, you can decide whether to splash out on something special, or instead find a bargain. Either way, you will know how much the restaurant is adding to the retail price, and where to buy that wine if you like it.
Wine Search is also useful if in a wine shop, as you can see the lowest, average, and highest prices being charged elsewhere (the wine prices used are those supplied to the well-known Wine-Searcher database). Wine Search finds merchants stocking that particular wine and lets you compare prices, so making sure that you are not paying over the odds.
Finally, if you are a sommelier, Wine Search conveniently calculates the gross profit on a given wine.
