Apps to choose the perfect glass of wineWith Valentine's Day coming up, impress your sweetheart by navigating the wine list with confidence. Instead of blindly guessing on a bottle or choosing the cheapest wine by the glass, pull out your smartphone to do some some quick research at the table....
[MUSIC] Pinot grigio or pinot noir? Cabernet or chardonnay? Eliminate the guesswork when choosing a glass of wine with a five dollar app, WineGlass. Start by taking a photo of a wine list. The app will scan it and magically turn it into an interactive list where you can tap on an item to find out the wine's ratings, reviews, pairings, and price points. When you find something you like, save it into your Cellar Tracker account for next time. The free Vivino app offers the menu scanning feature, plus the ability to research bottles while you're shopping in a wine store. Take a photo of any label, and up pops instant information about its quality and reviews from other Vivino users. This app encourages social interactions as you can post your tasting notes to social media, follow the accounts of other users, and even comment on what your friends are drinking. The free drink app takes the photo scanning feature one step further, and lets you purchase bottles you like directly through the app. Keep track of tasting notes and discover new wines through the drink community.
