Vivino Wine Scanner gains top lists and more in new Windows Phone update


I sometimes say that after the first sip, each additional swallow is just the means to the goal.

Apps like this are for true connoisseurs of vineyards and vintages. Good hobby, expensive, but surely rewarding.

This app has gotten me off CellarTracker. Have about 40 "cellared" wines and another 30+ in the "drink me now" wine fridge. CT was always overkill since we generally only buy sampler cases or quick consumption purchases. Ever since using untappd for beer I've longed for a major wine network to go 1-5* rating over the ridiculous 100 point scale. Haven't had a bottle fail to scan yet. Do wish I could do a tad more with the storage aspect (construct my layout grid and visualize wine as stored).

In curious, does it only recognise American wines. I'm from South Africa, which as you may know, is wine heaven haha this app may proof very helpful

No, it works wonders also in Europe, including German Whites, Spanish Reds etc. Also South Africa and Australia are well represented.

The good thing is, if a wine is not automatically recognised, you can add it manually, or wait 'til it gets hand scanned by the People at Vivino. With the Pro version you can also cut the queue ;-)

This is awesome! I had no idea an app like this existed. I'm sure this will quickly become one of my most used since my camera roll is full of wines I've tried and liked.
