Chow needs a special section devoted to wine: wine education, wines for those on a strict budget, wine pairings, cooking with wine, etc. Wine interest is extremely high among young people and Chow's target audience.
Yes, a wine board is needed, as is a site specifc, i.e., NYC or SF or other locale for comments/critiques on wine shops. BTW - as a recently turned 59 year old Manhattanite, may I say that wine and food is not an interest of the young only. My friends and I dine and often and feel "a day without wine, is like a day without sun."
I am going to go out on a limb and tell folks about a wine shop on E57th, Crush - explore, little known but good to great wines from little known producers. I am not affiliated with them.
