Ratings and Reviews
This app is literally amazing
I normally stick to the same brands of wine because I like to stick to what I know but this app has definitely changed that for me. First of all, the app is gorgeously designed!!!! I was amazed at the sophisticated simplicity of the design, and I LOVE how user-friendly it is. It’s so easy to navigate through the endless offers of this app. I can’t wait to try the wineries in California, France AND Italy (whenever COVID allows us to do that) and this app has made it easy for me to have it right at the touch of my fingers. Thank you for this app!!!!!
Only access w/ paid subscription - no basic access anymore
Just like others noticed, this app now only works with a paid subscription that amounts to $36/ year.
Like other users, I decided to press the delete button and after many years of use (10y?), it now is history and no longer on my phone.
I used it now for many years mainly for a quick look at the vintage charts and every once in a while I also had a subscription but I found that unless you are in the industry it’s not worth spending this for occasional use. I’m not a fan of a subscription model, especially not for things you only need once in a while. I thought it was a good play on their part as a teaser to get the magazine or even if you wanted to get individual ratings which were only available with a subscription. Maybe it’s worth if you get it as part of a magazine subscription as well but not as standalone.
WS mentioned that their website is mobile friendly and the basic info is still free on their site.

Needs better list capabilities
I have been using the website for both ratings searches and keeping track of my cellar. The app is much nicer for searching with the infinite scrolling and easy sorting. However, I’m not sure I’ll take the time to add my wines to lists. There is no way to search a list and no way to see what’s in the drink now window in your cellar. I’d really love a filter or two so I could an Italian red that’s ready to drink but will be past the best drink window by 2022, for example. So this is nice for being in the wine shop but not useful for being at home and trying to figure out what to pull out for dinner.
