I love wine but I fully admit that I’m a bit of a neanderthal when it comes to being able to pick a good wine from a not-so-good wine. As I have discovered, price isn’t necessarily a reflection of a wine that is good and there is certainly an element of personal tastes that come into the picture. Compounding my problem is when I go to my local grocer or “bottle store” (AKA Liquor Store), there is a dizzying number of wines of all times and all price ranges. Regardless of your wine selecting skills, there is a great app that can help you find that perfect wine as you stand there looking at a wall of bottles. The Vivino Wine Scanner app allows you to scan the label of any wine and instantly get peer ratings, price ranges and reviews of that wine. It helps eliminate the guess work so you can find wines you like at a price that is right.
The Vivino Wine Scanner app is one of those apps that just makes life easier. It works amazingly well and I’ve yet to find a bottle of wine that it didn’t recognise. Literally all you do is snap a photo of the label of the wine bottle and it does all the work of giving you information about that wine. It has become my favourite app to use while I’m stood in my grocer trying to find that bottle of wine that goes with that meal.
