SIX WINE APPS WORTH SEEKING OUT

 

 

Delect

 

 

Delectable

Take this slick, easy-to-use label-recognition app to your local wine store and spend hours snapping bottles and finding user reviews, prices and ratings. The quality of the reviews is erratic, so compensate by following critics to find out what they’re drinking. Free; delectable.com


Vivino

Vivino

With almost 7.5 million users and over 13 million wine ratings in 2014, this is clearly a popular tool. Users can quickly scan the label of a wine and Vivino will provide the price, average rating and reviews, as well as a little info on the wine. I didn’t find all reviews that helpful. Free; vivino.com


corks

 

 

Corkz

Linked to CellarTracker’s large database, this wine review app’s tasting notes (they claim to have more than 2 million) are helpful and reliable. Just tap your wine into the search or scan the bar code and you’re good to go. cellartracker.com


Plonk
 

 

Plonk

Aimed at the complete beginner, this app includes an overview of grape varieties, wine styles, food pairings and country guides. I particularly liked the audio function, which teaches you how to pronounce the names of wines correctly. Free; plonk-app.co.uk

But where it really excels is in price comparison and helping you navigate the best places to buy a particular bottle. Free; wine-searcher.com
