Hello Vino! Cool App for Any Wine Lover

By: Cresta

I recently downloaded an app to my iPhone so that I have notes handy when I’m in the wine aisle or out at a restaurant. Hello Vino is a great app for any wine lover, with many options to choose from. You can download the app for iPhone or Android, and it’s FREE.

You can choose a wine:

  • To go with a specific meal or food.  Select the food – from pizza to cheese to dessert – and Hello Vino will provide suggestions on the best wine pairing.
  • For an occasion. Whether it’s a gift, special holiday or a tasting party, get suggestions on the type of wine you should consider, including at least three specific recommendations.
  • By taste preference. The app selects the best wines to fit your taste, whether that’s red, white, pink. Dry, fruity, sweet.
  • By country, then by region. Know that you prefer wines from Argentina? Tap that and Hello Vino provides different regions to choose from, then at least three specific recommendations.
  • There’s also a section dedicated to Holiday Wines and Gifts.

This app includes a search function so that you may search by brand name, food pairing and taste preference. There’s also a wine label image recognition function (but you must purchase label scanner credits to use this). The My Wines tab allows you to save favorites, as well as wines that you’d like to try (Wishlist). There’s also a Reviews tab with two-minute audio reviews of select wines. Give the wine a thumbs up and save it to your shopping list. Share the wine on Facebook or Tweet it. Each wine highlights tasting notes and includes an average price.

You can download this app from the iTunes App Store and the Android Market. Or visit www.hellovino.com.

  1. Like it! Going to tell my wife, who’s the wineie (is there a “foodie” parallel) in our family…
