If you've ever gone to buy a bottle of wine without knowing exactly which one you want and why, you've probably felt overwhelmed with the vast amount of options and prices available. And as you can't always go around with a wine expert, you can download Vivino - Wine Scanner to your iPhone to know exactly what you're buying or tasting.
A wine expert always with you
This application for iOS (also available for Android smartphones and tablets in APK format) works as a mobile sommelier, as it allows you to identify any bottle of wine through its label and offers you plenty of information: variety, year, price, opinions, critics, ratings... And all the latter by simply scanning the label with the camera of your phone.
Looking for sweet wine? Rosé? Red? White? Vivino will help you out.
It's definitely an application that can be missing on your phone if you're a wine lover, or at least if you want to look like a wine expert, and it also lets you carry out the following actions:
- Scan the labels of different wines.
- Read reviews and opinions about them.
- Scan wine lists to find the most suitable one for your dinner.
- Save lists of favorite wines.
- Compare wines you like.
- Get in touch with other wine lovers like yourself.
- Share references with your contacts.
- Receive decent offers to purchase wine online.
- Create and save a database with all the wines you've tasted.
For those of you that prefer beer, Vivino - Wine Scanner is a kind of Untappd for wines, although the function to scan labels makes it even more complete than the social network aimed at the world of beers.
