San Rafael, Calif. -- The just-launched Wine Industry Marketplace at winesandvinesdirectory.com features more than 3,600 suppliers who sell everything from barrels to labels to software, tractors and weather stations. Powered by the industry’s leading database -- Wines & Vines IndustryBase -- the Wine Industry Marketplace brings buyers and sellers together across North America.

Wines & Vines, the most trusted and established publisher in the wine industry, also announces release of its 2010 Directory/Buyer’s Guide in print. This invaluable resource provides more help than ever to wineries and grapegrowers across North America, while filling information gaps for a host of other industry participants, including suppliers, distributors, wine writers, public and private agencies and more.

The 800-page print edition of the 2010 Directory/Buyer’s Guide and the powerful new Wine Industry Marketplace website will both debut this week at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in Sacramento, Calif.
