What's New in Version 1.2
Great little app with loads of wine info
Covers the major regions, and a good selection of grapes, and describes how they go together.
Some decent cross-recommendations from grape to grape, but region to region is a bit weak.
Something that would really improve it is notes about different years in each region. What the year was like, when to drink it, anything like that really.
Love my grapes!
This app is great. I used it in the pub last night and ended up drinking a Godello....literally never heard of it before, and it was lush.
It looks cool too.
This is an excellent wine APP for people who are not that confident when buying or ordering wine. Simple but very effective and yes it is a smart looking APP!
