WINE BY MOOD SYSTEM - Finally A Way to Understand Wine!
** “We select most consumer goods based on mood/feeling so it makes sense to also do it with wine.” **
Long time readers of wine writer Billy Munnelly will be familiar with his unique Mood Category System for buying and selecting wine. “It all starts with the situation and mood – tell me the situation, and I’ll tell you which wine. Once you identify the situation, my app will lead you to some appropriate wine choices.”
Billy’s app starts with basic choices between white, red and sweet/bubbly. It then takes you into the friendly Mood Category System which presents different situations and asks if you “Want to be Refreshed with lively white”, “Cruise with something nice ‘n easy”, “Schmooze with a rich red”, or perhaps “Go for Gusto with a rustic Italian”.
The user can choose to explore the recommended wine picks by Situation (Everyday Meals, Patio Sipper, House Red, Party On!) or by Billy's Theme (“Date the Beaujolais Boys”, “Pinot Pretenders”, Italian Classics).
You go from there to zoomable bottle shots of possible picks and a short personality bio in each wine. Share favourite wines and comments with friends on Facebook and Twitter
