Welcome to the single most efficient way to learn about wine, an essential tool for budding sommeliers, those facing wine exams or anyone who would like to enjoy confident wine knowledge.

This is not a quiz app (although it has quizzes!); it’s all about learning and remembering the myriad of information around wine.

Decanter Know Your Wine is a microlearning app. It uses s p a c i n g to deliver learning in highly efficient short lessons. It asks you questions and uses Artificial Intelligence to learn from your answers so that you learn the content you're struggling with and don't keep repeating the stuff you know.

Use the app little and often and progress through a series of rankings en route to becoming a Know Your Wine Grand Master. Complete the program and your knowledge of wine will become exceptional. You might even begin to master some of our online quizzes! (

More questions will be added over time, so keep checking back.

Great app

I enjoyed using this while studying for the CMS Certified exam. I hope they will add Spain, Germany, Portugal, and New Zealand in the future. My only quibble is that once you’ve answered ~75% of the questions the quiz takes a long time to queue up 5 questions since there aren’t as many left. (Also: Made it to the end, and when only one question is left, it won't let you say "correct" - it marks it wrong so you can't finish and get to 100% - not cool!)

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review, delighted it helped and have taken on board your comment re the closing stages. We are working on new modules right now. - Re your comment regarding the last question, that obviously shouldn't happen (and we agree is not cool!), we've retested this extensively and can't recreate it, could you send an email to and we'll take a look at it with you and see if we can figure out what's going on. Thank you.

Out of Order Questions Lead to Frustration

The concepts presented by the app have good intensions and seem to structure a natural learning of wine while avoiding short term memory learning faults. Unfortunately the early questions being wildly out of order lead to consistent frustration on aspects way too difficult for the section.

During the first few modules, why are questions on specific vineyards or labels included? Material on wine label basics or what specific label information means has not even been introduced yet. Asking about individual champagne label details that early on provides no opportunity for learning and incentivizes one time memorization in order to progress only to be forgotten soon afterwards.

While the majority of questions are appropriate, encountering unrelated random facts adds artificial difficulty and confusion.

Cool app, could improve.

I like the app. It's definitely challenging for a wine neophyte like myself. Recommend adopting a flashcard system based on neuroscience like the Forever Fluent language learning app (Too many nuances to go over here, but it's about a lot more than using flashcards). Other two improvements I'd recommend are the inclusion of maps and pronunciation (sound files) for those of us without the requisite language background. Bottom line is I do recommend the app and enjoy using it on a daily basis.
