Whether you want to learn more about your favourite varietals or simply need a convenient way to keep track of every wine you try, take a look at these four apps that promise to become any wine lover's best friend.
Delectable - Free
Delectable not only allows you to keep track of what you have been drinking, but also provides a space in which to see the bottles that sommeliers and wine writers from all around the world have been loving (or hating). With advanced label reading technology, this app will recognise the brand, varietal, region and vintage just by scanning the bottle in front of you. This makes it easier than ever to remember what wines you have tried and which ones are still on your list. The ability to follow wine drinkers from all around the world also provides great opportunity to discover brands or creations that you might not have come across before. The best part about this app is that it caters to everyone.
Wine Notes - Free
For those that consider themselves a wine connoisseur, the Wine Notes app will be your new addiction. This wonderful app allows you to rate and track your personal wine reviews and if you wish, share with family and friends via Twitter and Facebook.
Wine Notes is the perfect platform to record your favourite (or not so favourite) wines for future reference and comparison, with other features including a wish list for adding the wines that you love, and a barcode scanner that gives you wine reviews in an instant!
Gourmet Traveller Wine - Free
Created by Australia’s leading independent beverage magazine, the Gourmet Traveller WINE app is a brilliant extension of what this publication has to offer. With everything you need in one convenient place, wine lovers will enjoy reading everything from wine reviews and news to recommendations and bottles to look out for - all written by Gourmet Traveller’s dedicated team of wine experts.
The app also details the best wine experiences to explore throughout Australia, including restaurants and wineries, ingredients for the perfect wine pairings as well as upcoming wine events in your area.
Having won the 2015 Summer Awards for Best Mobile App Design, this is the perfect app to boost your wine knowledge.
Wine Events - Free
If you want to completely immerse yourself in the wine world, there is certainly no shortage of dedicated events for you to attend no matter where you are in the world. Wine Events is your comprehensive diary detailing these festivities, detailing everything you need to know about events near you. Spanning hundreds of wine regions throughout the world, this is a great option to take with you travelling as it can let you in on local festivals or winery events that you might not be aware of otherwise.
