WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

New Mexico wineries[edit]

I was surprised to find not one single article on any of the many award-winning wineries in New Mexico. (Though there were a couple deleted ones, no surprise there...)

So, I've created List of wineries in New Mexico along with articles on seven notable wineries:

I'm not familiar with the project standards, so these probably need some work, infoboxes, etc. Feel free to help out. Skyerise (talk) 22:43, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Langton's Classification[edit]

Looking at developing a NavBox for the Langton's classification. In my view, each of the wines listed on the classification could be considered notable and as a result I initially looked at listing all the various wines under their particular classification, however this became quite long. My second attempt was to list just the wineries (with sub links where relevant), it does result in some duplicates however. What does everyone think? Screech1616 (talk) 13:21, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

In this case, as in the case of most other New World wines/wineries, my opinion is that there should usually be one entry for the producer covering all of their wines. Notable wines might get a section of their own within that article. I think it is much more useful for the reader to have all Henschke's or Grosset's wines, or at least the famous ones, described within one article. Tomas e (talk) 21:27, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
I don't agree, the listing is of Wines, not Wineries, strange to have e.g. Henschke three times without any more text as it is now. Or do you suggest to group everything together in a A-Z list and then in some way list what classification each winery's wines have?? I can't visualise that! --Stefan-S talk 01:13, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

The Rocks AVA[edit]

Hi, is this project active? I just reverted some edits to The Rocks AVA by a COI editor. AVAs are not my long suit, so I'm not sure if the edits were legit or not. It looks like marketing vs. official designation to me. Can someone look them over? Feel free to revert my reversion. Valfontis (talk) 00:28, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes, this project is correctly classified as semi-active. AVAs is not really my side of the Atlantic, but it seems to me that if the AVA is actually called "The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater", the article should probably be moved to the slightly cumbersome name "The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater AVA".
