What better way to celebrate than with a fine bottle of wine? For the discerning drinker, who would like something a little less harsh on the palette than what’s on offer in the local supermarket, there’s Vivino.
This comprehensive app for wine lovers allows you to browse the Market tab and buy from a curated list of offers, as well as search wines within your budget that have been highly rated by the app’s committed community of wine drinkers. Buying is incredibly easy.
But this is much more than a shopping app. As a member of the Vivino community you can also contribute to the reviews once you’ve tried your wines. This all helps towards building your own taste profile within the app. So, if you have consistently rated Californian pinot noir highly, the chart will show you. You can then choose to stick with your favourite flavours, or try something new.
There’s more fun to be had with the wine scanning function. Give the wine list in a restaurant a sneaky scan and find out whether the hefty price tag on that Bordeaux is worth the spend. Check the ratings on that supermarket offer, or look in your own wine rack and scan to find out whether the bottle you’ve pulled out is a special one or a cheap one, only fit for cooking.
You can then add these wines to your personal cellar on the app, so that next time you have guests and can’t remember what’s worth opening, you can check the My Cellar section in the app. Cheers to that.
