Note from Nat …

Howdy Wine Lovers,

I'm not able to address issues posted here, so please e-mail me if you have a feature to suggest or there's a bug to fix:


The new label scanner will improve with your help in adding new wines and labels. Let's make this app even better together!

This is a labor of love for me as a journalist: it has cost me personally more than $100,000 to create and keep updating this app ... so please be kind and patient ;)



P.S. Please upgrade your smartphone to Apple's most recent operating system (iOS) to optimize app performance. It's free to do this:

App didn't work

The scanner works sometimes, but wouldn't give me reviews w/out joining their community. Even then I'd have to by a subscription to get the review.

useful but not free

This app is only free for two months, but I found it really helpful especially when shopping. I love the cellar, wish list, and shopping features. Not to mention how easy it is to access the wine reviews. The bar scan worked. It does not, however, have that many reviews and some are short and not helpful.

Great Pairing App

Tons of free reviews from a well respected wine taster with a talent for pairing wines and food. As such, its most powerful and best feature is that you can start by selecting either a favorite food and let Natalie suggest a varietal that pairs well, or start with a wine and let her suggest foods or cheeses that pair well. Even better, once you select a varietal, it leads you to specific wines with Natalie's reviews. The app even includes wine friendly recipes.

The application is web-based, thus the app stays fresh and current, as it integrates into her website. This eliminates having to download large updates from time-to-time. The app easily pulls current reviews, recent newsletters, etc.

Great app for anyone who is interested in pairing suggestions.
