Social Media Wine Influencers and #Winelover-s (2013)

2 Klout lists have attracted particular attention in the wine world: the Klout list of social media wine influencers compiled by the Germany-based wine journalist Mario Scheuermann and the Klout list of #winelover-s compiled by USA-based Luiz Alberto.


Klout attempts to measure social media participants’ influence across social networks. The Klout score, a number between 1 and 100, is a representation of one’s overall social media influence, with higher scores corresponding to a higher assessment. The analysis is done on data taken from sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, and measures the size of a social media participant’s network, the content created and how others interact (retweet, comment, etc.) with that content.

Klout was founded in 2009 in San Francisco by Joe Fernandez and Binh Tran. Klout currently has 40 employees.

Mario Scheuermann’s List of Social Media Wine Influencers

The German wine journalist Mario Scheuermann has compiled a list of global social media wine influencers on Klout. The list contains wine personalities from all over the world, currently 442, ranked by their Klout score. Leading the list is Jancis Robinson with a score of 84.

I feel honored to be on Mario Scheuermann's list.
