Wine Maps provides a handy visual reference, for the wine regions in twenty countries around the world. Its a great tool for anyone looking to learn more about the world of wine, and even better for those looking for maps to study from. It's perfect for those teaching others about wine, and Wine Maps provides a number of ways of exporting or printing maps.

Wine Maps focuses exclusively on mapping the wine regions of the world. It offers one hundred and twenty two maps, defining the wine regions. It is NOT an encyclopaedia of wine, and does not give any textual definitions or comment. Wine Maps is a purely visual reference, which allows you to search for the location of a wine region. With the exception of the top wineries in Bordeaux, individual vineyards do not appear on the maps. There's just too many of them!

Each map is one or two taps away from the main screen. Simply choose from the main wine region list, and you instantly have a map of that region. You can search for regions by name, and Wine Maps will neatly zoom into its location. The surrounding regions will be greyed out to highlight the selected region. Each map has the wine regions clearly presented, along with rivers, cities, and major towns. 

You can adjust the major components for map. for example to hide the labels for wine regions. You can hide the rivers, or the towns and cities. On each map, controls are provided to show, grey out, or hide individual wine regions.

For commercial users, who would like to make more extensive use of the maps, an in-app purchase has been added. This provides a licence to distribute maps, via websites, videos, presentations, and more.

Wine Maps is also bundled with a companion app for your Apple TV. Allowing you to show off your wine knowledge, and TV simultaneously!

Excellent wine maps!

I work in the wine industry. I use the maps to teach restaurant owners where the wine they are buying comes from. I love this app. I would recommend updating the maps as there are new AVAs popping up. Thank you!

Best in its class, a work in progress...

Don’t be fooled by my title; wine maps will always be a work in progress. You will NOT find a better wine map app at $.99. Even electronic wine books with maps are not as nicely portrayed as those in this app. As the developer continues to refine current content and add new maps, which he certainly intends to do as indicated by the version history, this app will easily attain 5 Stars.

A note about the navigation system: It is clean and simple. And while I found myself wanting to either navigate or explore additional information within the actual maps, I quickly adapted to using only the search and drop down menu. It would be a considerable amount of work—but worthy of an additional purchase option, if active navigation within maps could be used to display pop-up information about the selected region.

Great Tool for Studying Wine

These maps are very well organized and easy to read. One of the best quick-reference tools for wine studies that I have seen. I have never encountered a glitch and I appreciate that new appellations are added in a timely fashion.
