I should point out that we have something similar to my own rating scale on the main site these days:
|5 - Outstanding||An outstanding wine that, as well as giving you a great deal of drinking pleasure, was worth the money spent and should definitely be recommended to others.|
|4 - Very Good||A delicious, memorable, well-made wine that you’re likely to recommend to others.|
|3 - Good||A good wine that left you feeling quite pleased with the value, and which you’d be happy to vouch for.|
|2 - Fair||Perhaps an unmemorable everyday wine or a disappointing fine wine – a wine that came across as a little awkward, or which was ok for some but one that you might think twice about buying again.|
|1 - Poor||A poor experience, maybe with something off-putting or faulty about it and one not worth buying again, or mentioning only to suggest others avoid it.|
What do you think of this? Have you given any ratings?
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but in the last few weeks these ratings have been made easier to find since it used to require 10 member reviews before the average would display, but we’ve dropped that own to only 3 reviews, so a LOT more wines are now showing the average rating when you browse the product page (before you see the reviews).
It makes it particularly useful when you find something you love, you can give it a star rating so others can find it too.
