Wine Library TV, a popular wine video blog that shares the wine expertise of founder and host Gary Vaynerchuk, has announced it has acquired the wine social network Cork'd. In simple terms, Cork'd is site for a wine lover to share and rate wine. It seems like a great fit as Gary highlights wines that Cork'd enables users a way to suggest and keep track of the wine you would like to try - they have excellent crossover. I briefly highlighted Cork'd while showcasing wine and web 2.0.
In chatting with Gary today over email, he offered this explanation for acquiring Cork'd:
"From the day I saw Corkd.com I knew they nailed it... to have the honor to take Cork'd to the next level and most importantly to give "THE PEOPLE" what they deserve is not only exciting but an honor!"
Gary also mentioned that there are plans to integrate OpenID and SMS functionality into Cork'd.
