"We pride ourselves on featuring the best of wine to our customers and expanding the wine.com experience into new areas, and this presents the dining aficionado a simple way to locate premier, hard-to-find wines."

"A fantastic meal is not complete without an equally good bottle of wine, and this partnership makes it easy for Internet users to enjoy both," said Jeff Edwards, OpenTable.com CEO. "We're excited about offering our users the added benefit of access to their favorite wines, and introducing wine.com's members to the benefits of rewards-based online restaurant reservations."

The relationship will benefit oenophiles and food connoisseurs alike as wine.com will work with OpenTable.com to feature wines from the wine lists of OpenTable.com member restaurants, which include many of the country's top dining destinations.

OpenTable.com members will have convenient online access to the wine lists of their favorite restaurants, information from wine.com that will help them select from that list, and - by linking back to wine.com - will be able to order those wines to enjoy at home. Wine.com customers will be able to access OpenTable.com's restaurant search and reservation engine from many key areas of the wine.com site.
