Since 1980, Platter's has been the wine-lover's essential guide to exploring the world of South African wine, including ratings of over 8,000 wines and key winery information. The Platter's app is your Platter's "in your pocket" and features all the new edition's ratings, top wine lists and wines of the year.

3. There may occasionally be wines that are not in the database, this is usually due to producer non-submission or brand new vintages (wines still to be assessed by our tasters), but you are welcome to email us to check.
4. Existing Platter's web users can log in to the app using their current Platter's username and password to access your favourites lists.

I downloaded the app but because of the reviews I am worried to subscribe and waste my money.
Maybe a one month trial would help.

Historical Reviews

I’ve been a subscriber since the App was launched and find it extremely helpful as a guide when shopping for wine.

I do however feel a bit done in, as - unlike those who purchase the book yearly - a lot if historical reviews seem to ‘disappear’ with every year’s update. I also feel that there is lots if interesting information in the hard copy that could/ should be included in the app. If this is not possible, why not offer a package deal whereby subscribers can get the book at a much reduced price annually?

Worst App Ever try Vivino

I bought this app, it worked badly at first and then not at all. It now stops me from unsubscribing and takes money every month. It also won’t let me log in now. Twrrible
