Vinography is a wine blog dedicated to wine reviews, restaurant reviews, news, and commentary about the world of wine.[2] It was started by Alder Yarrow in January 2004, and has been described by The Independent as an interesting source of wine related info from the San Francisco Bay area.[3] It receives some of the highest web traffic of any wine blog.[4] The blog has been noted by Food & Wine Magazine[5] and The Wall Street Journal [6] for its popularity and comprehensiveness.

The blog's author and founder, Alder Yarrow, a graduate of Stanford University, runs an interactive design and strategy consulting firm in San Francisco and also serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of Sommelier Journal and as a nominating member for the Vintners Hall of Fame.

The name is a portmanteau of vino, the Latin root meaning "wine", and the Greek word graphein, meaning "write".
