Going on a romantic date or group dinner with friends? Are you usually the one that will shy away from picking the wine because you’re afraid of making uninformed choices?
Good news! The three applications below will remove the anxiety and confusion from reading a wine list. Build confidence and develop your own wine vocabulary, guided by millions of expert tasting notes from the online wine community.
Though this application is free, it’s only available for iPhones. This is one of the most easy-to-use beginner wine apps.
You navigate through a periodic table-like interface to learn about grape variety, country, or food and wine matching, and there’s clever features such as audio files to teach you how to pronounce different grape varieties, and tips on what to drink next if you like a certain style.
Vivino is availablefor iPhones and Androids. Vivino is definitely more for the moderate to advanced wine drinker with its comprehensive collection of more than one million wines.
A wine-themed mix of Flickr and music-spotting app Shazam, Vivino uses image-recognition software, scanning photos of bottles and connecting them to a database.
There’s space for you to write a tasting note and rate the wine, links to other wines from the same producer, and some rather broad-brush food-and-wine matching suggestions.
This app also uses image-recognition software, which makes the whole process that much easier. Just take a picture of a wine list at a bar or restaurant – WineGlass will instantly scan the image and give you an interactive version on your iPhone.
WineGlass shows you ratings, reviews, price information and food pairings for each wine, helping you make smart choices for your own taste and budget.
