Trust us, you’re not the only one who thinks wine selection is complicated. All those fancy terms, exotic grapes and locations, and snobby wine know-it-alls. We just want a nice wine to go with the fabulous meal we threw together. Why can’t it be easier to narrow down the overwhelming selection in the wine aisle or have a sommelier (is that what those wine experts are called?) give us a straight answer? Is there an app for that?
Please put your hands together for Hello Vino, the best wine app that goes above and beyond simple food-and-wine pairings. Uncork this free wine app for iPhone and Android devices, then dive deep into the wonderful world of wine. Start by searching for a wine according to occasion, country or region, taste preference, or (of course) meal and food pairings. (There’s even a section for candy bars!) All wine recommendations come complete with acclaimed, popular and bargain-brand selections, along with other types of wine you might enjoy in different wine families. Simply tap a particular wine for more information.
If you already have a wine on hand, enter its information and Hello Vino will spit out a list of deliciousness, ranging from the common meats, cheeses, and desserts to gravies, seasonings, pizzas, and ethnic foods that pair well with your wine. No meal category is left unturned with this wine app. Try a fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon with a hint of spice to wash down your next roast beef sandwich.
But what makes this the best wine app? Try searching wines by brand names with the wine-label-image recognition feature. Just download a package of label-image scans ($0.99 for 20 shots), which enables Hello Vino to read wine-bottle labels. Point your camera at a wine-bottle label to snap a photo, and the app reads your label photo and pulls up brand info such as images, price, ratings, regions, vintage year, and description. Save it to your personal wine list or share it on Facebook or Twitter. You can also add your own review if your palate so dares.
There is nothing to lose and everything to gain from downloading this free wine app for iPhone and Android. You will be amazed at how easy the app is to navigate and how quickly you can find your perfect wine for any occasion. You’ll soon be drinking the Hello Vino Kool-Aid, er, wine, too!
