Washington, DC - January 12, 2011 - Wine-Reviews Inc. today announced it acquired The Bordeaux Technology Group., a Greenville, SC-based Wine services company.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Bordeaux entered the Wine services market in early 2008 and gained a foothold through its strength in marketing, branding and the technology expertise of a limited partnership with Wine-Reviews Inc.
With the acquisition of Bordeaux, Wine-Reviews has transformed from a stand alone news portal service to a full service Wine information and Technology company. With the acquisition of The Bordeaux Technology Group, Wine-Reviews will provide the current Bordeaux customer base with better support and upgrade options. Future Bordeaux releases will have an auto upgrade option built in, this feature will allow the end user to upgrade to the newest version with a single mouse click.
Wine-Reviews plans to re-write all of the current code used in Bordeaux and provide a vastly improved graphical user interface to make the process of installing Windows applications and games on Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and OpenIndiana as easy and strait forward as possible. The current GUI is written in GTK and is extremely limited in it's functionality and options.
