"Champagne, champagne for everyone!"

Reviewed by / Oct 10, 2013

Discover new wines, remember the ones you love, and share your experiences with friends

Diogenes once said, "What I like to drink most is wine that belongs to others." While this may be true for most of us, there's also great appeal in being able to navigate your own way through a wine list at a restaurant, or at least through the fun aisles of the grocery store. Given the practically infinite variety of bottles, however, how is one supposed to make informed decisions without resorting to the house red? Enter Vivino, which serves at once as the Wikipedia and Facebook of wines.

Use Vivino to take a clear photo of the label on the bottle in front of you, and its scanning mechanism will identify the bottle and pull up a wealth of useful, relevant information from its indices. It's the sort of trick you don't quite believe until you try it for yourself - I haven't been able to stump it yet. Vivino's had a detailed report for every single wine I've scanned, which includes an average rating according to other users, average price point, where I can find this wine for purchase in my area, information about the winery, and serving tips with food. You can even read tasting notes written by other users, offering observations as specific as "grass, white flowers, peach on the nose" and "notes of dried red berries, hints of saddle leather and cigar box."

When you open a wine for tasting, you can mark the time and place on the app, then add your own ranking and tasting notes as you enjoy. These can be shared with the Vivino community at large, or kept to yourself as a private wine journal. Rank enough wines and the app will start to give you recommendations based on your personal taste.

The design is clean, and navigation is intuitive.

Pop the cork on the world of the fermented grape. Vivino is a must-have app for wine lovers looking to keep track of what they've tried.

    Great app, but it won't give me the correct badges. When it does, it takes some away. Love the pic search, manual review, and wine database.

    Used to be a one time payment to get all features but now charges $5 a month just so you can add wine to "your cellar." Update* There is no access to my cellar. It is locked via premium and so is my fast track availability.

    It was good, until last update. I had a pro account, and i payed for it, and now they tell me to pay every month. Thx, but NO.

    Just too bad that the premium version is prohibitively expensive.

    An app I use with every wine I taste and drink, in part a hobby and in part a good way to create my personal wine library.
