Featured as one of the “Best New Apps” on the App Store!

Food and wine pairing has never been so clear, accessible and easy to understand. This FREE app from Wine Paradigm gives you complete access to the comprehensive food pairing features in Pocket Wine - one of the most popular wine apps in the USA, UK and Canada. It gives you a detailed index of hundreds of meal types, showing you the best matches for different wine styles, grape varieties and blends. A “Do’s & Don’ts” section, along with a “Quick Guide To Food Types” provides valuable and easy to follow information enabling you to discover even more unique food and wine pairings for yourself.

In addition, the app gives you access to the “My Wines” section, where you can add photos and details of wines you like, as well as adding them to your cellar. The app also allows you to view and sample many of the features and content of our parent app, Pocket Wine. Use this FREE app for as long as you like, and as often as you like (you don't need to login, it works offline and it's also ad free). You can choose to upgrade at any time for a once only purchase price - no monthly or annual charges - and access all the content to give yourself the full Pocket Wine experience.

Here’s what some users of our full Pocket Wine app had to say:

Very helpful

I mostly use this ap for food pairings. It is much better than others I have tried, although it still is not as extensive as I would like.

Ideal - 5 Star

This is ideal for wine enthusiasts of all levels. It has excellent content and the best food and wine pairing information I have found on any app. Small price to upgrade is well worth it.

Poor value

I can’t believe I got charged 3.00 for this app. It still does not have a comprehensive list of grapes and does not include any wines for pairing with desserts.

It is a half hearted attempt at trying to look like it provides an entire vault of knowledge, when it doesn’t even come close.

Do not waste your time or your three bucks.........

Developer Response ,

Very sorry you feel this way about the app, which has taken thousands of hours to develop. The app includes comprehensive information on 110 grape varieties and blends. The content in this one section of the app alone is equivalent to at least two average sized novels and it’s all been written specifically for the app. The main characteristics of each grape variety are shown, along with a detailed description, regional information and a food pairing guide. In addition, the app also includes the following sections: Styles (definitions of each of the six table wine styles), Food (comprehensive food pairing information and advice for hundreds of meal types), My Wines (ability to add an unlimited number of your wines to the app and manage your cellar), My Taste (unique taste profiling tool to understand your taste preferences), Places (index of wine regions and appellations) and a large Glossary of wine terms. And all of this is available for a one time only cost of $3.99 - there are no monthly or annual charges and you don’t have to log in to use the app - we do not collect any personal data. We believe the insights contained within the app, especially with regard to table wine styles, will transform a users understanding and enjoyment of wine. We engage with users every day who absolutely love the app. Perhaps, if you spend some time exploring the app, you might change your mind. Either way, we hope you continue to love and enjoy wine.
