“The Ultimate App for Wine Enthusiasts” – iPhoneLife Magazine
Take your wine knowledge and enjoyment to the next level with our comprehensive app. It is one of the most popular wine apps in the USA, UK and Canada and is probably the best investment you can make in wine.
Simple and easy to use, the app provides you with insights that would otherwise take years to acquire. For example, understanding wine styles is a revelation and will enable you to approach wines with confidence, like a professional. After using the app for a short while, every wine store you walk into will become an Aladdin’s Cave of hidden treasures.
The unique cellar management function allows you to record and track your wines in a highly visual and meaningful way. Style icons are assigned to each wine and essential details can be seen at a glance. You can save as many photos as you like for each wine and add as much, or as little, information as you want, including notes and ratings. Editing is easy, and search and sort functions allow you to view your wines in multiple ways.
In addition, you can explore a range of dedicated sections in the app on wine styles, grape varieties, food pairing and a unique taste profiling tool to reveal the wines you love based on the foods you like, which is both fun and informative.
Key benefits include:
• Record all your wines by adding them to the app (add as many wines as you like, there is no limit). View them in a highly visual and meaningful format and profile your cellar in multiple ways.
• Sync your wines between iPhone and iPad – you can add the app to your other Apple devices free of charge.
• Gain a revealing insight into wine styles through clear and easy to understand definitions.
• Unlimited access to over 100 grape varieties and blends, showing key attributes, detailed descriptions, regional information and food pairing advice for each.
• Dedicated Food Pairing section with expert advice and pairing recommendations for hundreds of meal types.
• Discover your personal taste profile, and those of your friends and family, in the unique My Taste guide.
• Access an extensive Glossary of wine terms, specifically written for the app.
• Frequently Asked Questions section answers all the important questions you may have.
Please note that Pocket Wine does NOT try to sell you wines or review individual wines. The app is dedicated to maximizing your enjoyment and understanding of wine, while providing a professional platform to record your wine experiences and manage your cellar.
The app has now moved to a subscription model with monthly ($0.99), annual ($5.99) and lifetime ($19.99) options. All previous purchasers of the full Pro version of the app have been granted lifetime status.
The app content has been revised and update, with some bug fixes and a number of important improvements:
• Styles tab now displays relevant cellar stats below each style - showing number of wines added, number of bottles in the cellar and cellar value.
• Sort options on the My Wines tab have been extended to include Vintage (year). When vintage is selected your wines will be displayed from oldest to youngest.
• A “Duplicate” wine button has been added next to the "Edit" button when a wine is displayed – very handy when you want to enter a new vintage of a previously added wine.
• Five new grape varieties have been added – Frappato (Fruity), Malvasia Nera (Fruity), Susumaniello (Powerful), Thrapsathiri (Rich) and Vernaccia di San Gimignano (Crisp) – bringing the total number of grape varieties and blends in the app to 115.
• Glossary content has been extended to include new terms, such as, Pét Nat.
• Frequently Asked Questions section has been updated. It is highly recommended you read this section before using the app.
Ratings and Reviews
Everything a wine newbie could possibly need except....
As a person new to wine I have been searching high and low for a simple app to allow me to track my wines, get information on different varieties of wine, and not have to deal with a bunch of unnecessary extras like seeing what the “pros” are drinking. This app does exactly what I need it to, but it also gives wine pairing suggestions which is completely awesome! I love this app and it is definitely worth upgrading to the full unlocked version for $3.99. With that being said, the only reason I gave this app a 4 and not a 5 star rating is because it doesn’t have the sparking wine, rose wine, and dessert wine categories, or the ability to read labels. The not having a label reading ability is in no way a deal breaker, but if at the very least the publisher adds the missing wine categories (if it ever does) I can easily give this app 5 star rating with or without label reading capabilities.
Useful, easy to use and elegant.
Very useful app for anyone working in the wine trade, but also for wine enthusiasts. Being able to add as many photos as you like to each bottle entry is excellent. It's great for adding screenshots of reviews and / or ratings of a wine and you can also add screenshots of data from producer websites. I do most of this on my iPhone and then view it on the iPad where it looks great in the larger format making it ideal for showing to customers. And you get all this and a ton of information on grape varieties and food pairing for just $3.99. Hard to beat.
Paid option is worth it!
I am the order writer for the wine section at a Trader Joe’s and this app has been invaluable! From the information on obscure grapes including the regions they grow in to the very detailed food pairing list, the app has been very helpful in my own personal search to discover new wines as well as help others find their new favorite.
