Which is why we put together this quick list about the apps you can use to look up wine and what goes well with them. We are about to make your life much easier, all you need to do is pay attention and click a link.

Vivino: Buy The right wine

This is probably the most famous apps out there for wine lovers. It tells you all about what you are about to drink or what you want to drink later on. If you visit restaurants often then this will likely be your favorite. It is also available for free on Google Play and the App Store.

The best function is that you can scan labels. This way whenever you go wine shopping you can easily access every single bit of information about the drink of your choice. That includes rating, taste, pairings and price. It can also tell you if this certain wine is available cheaper at another store.

But if you prefer drinking at restaurants then you can also do quick searches. In this case, you will also reach a wine profile where you can see all the information listed above. It makes choosing much easier and you don’t have to blindly pick a wine. (Quick tip: this app will make sure that you impress your date with your wine knowledge!)

And at last, you can also rate and describe your experience. You can talk about the taste and what you had it with, helping other wine lovers understand the nature of your drink. This way you can suggest new pairings or tell others how something is off in the description.

Just Wine

The Just Wine app is great for those who are just beginning to discover the world of wine. It gives you guides on how to taste, open a bottle and other useful things. You can also learn fun facts about wine.

The other interesting aspect is that it lists events that will be around you. All of them are about wine, so if you want to be more social through your hobby then this is your chance. These events often include wine tasting as well, so even if you are more introverted you might consider going.

You can find ratings, tastes, prices and bargains. You can also search locally, which means you won’t be in a situation where you found your perfect wine but have to drive an hour to get it. Those situations can be avoided with this function.

Library of Wines

But you can also have a “cellar”. This application lets you create a library of your wines, your favourites, the ones you want to drink and what you have already drunk.
