Very, very many thanks to the almost incredible number of purple pages members – well over 700 - who responded to our emailed survey asking for information to help us improve this site. I haven't had time to analyse the results yet but those who have seen them all tell me there is some wonderfully helpful comment there. You can be sure we will act on your suggestions as much as is humanly and technologically possible. We'll be picking the five most helpful responses, and those who wrote them will be receiving a preview copy of our new DVD of the multi-award-winning Vintners' Tales BBC2 tv series as well as a donation of £100 made on your behalf to Wine Relief.
However…so far responses from those who have never joined purple pages or whose membership has lapsed are still a tiny fraction of members' responses. It stands to reason therefore that if you were kindly to take the trouble to answer this survey, you stand a very much higher chance of winning one of the five DVDs set aside for non members. The DVD consists of ten 10-minute film portraits of amusing or venerable wine folk, including Michael Broadbent, Harry Waugh, Edmund Penning-Rowsell, Adam Brett-Smith of Corney & Barrow, Farr Vintners, Richards and Walford, Bill Baker of Reid Wines and Nigel Wilson of Lincoln College, Oxford.
Please let us know what you think of site, however rude your comments. We really would like you to like it more, but can't unless we have your feedback.
