Whether you’re a beginner wine enthusiast or a sommelier, reading wine labels and figuring which wines to drink can be a difficult task. Below, are the 3 best wine apps for all wine enthusiasts.
Considered by many as the “king of all wine apps”, Delectable allows users to save, share, and discover incredible wines with ease. It is the most popular wine app that allows users to connect with their wine and help consumers learn about wine. Users are able to obtain “accurate identification and information” on any bottle of wine from a single digital photo. Delectable has a database of over two million wines found across the globe. While wine labels can sometimes be hard to read, Delectable makes it easy to receive and store information about that great bottle of wine you just had at your favorite restaurant. It will tell you what vintage it is, what winery it came from, and how the winemaker prepared it. The best part is that you can order wine right from the app and have it delivered right to your door in a few days. It’s like Uber for wine.
Delectable, in my opinion, is the best wine app out there for the beginner or even expert wine enthusiast. It will continue to dominate the wine app industry. Earlier this week, it even raised another three million dollars in Series A funding. We should expect new features from them soon.
Vivino is another great wine app that also utilizes snapshots to generate information to users. Once a photo of a wine is taken, it will find out the wine’s average rating, price, and show comments from other Vivino users. After you have rated or placed wines in your wish list, the app will start giving you recommendations of wine for you to try. The more wine you rate, the better the recommendations will become. A great app for the wine enthusiasts that love to try new wine.
3) Hello Vino
The third wine app that has gotten considerable attention in recent years is Hello Vino. What makes Hello Vino stand out from Delectable and Vivino is its functionality as a wine, food-pairing app. It will tell you which wine to pair with that pizza you just made or that exotic Latin dish you just ordered at your favorite restaurant. Hello Vino helps you find the right wine bottle to go with the right food in an easy to use format. It also allows users to save all the pairings they searched for as well. It’s a great app for wine enthusiasts who have trouble pairing wine with food.
