IF YOU LOVE WINE, but you don't know much about the names, types, regions and wine pairings, this app will help make wine shopping easy, not overwhelming.
RECOMMENDATIONS - This app will help you BEFORE you buy. It's made for the 99% of wine shoppers who need some help in the store or restaurant. Simply tell the app what you're eating, or provide some general taste preferences (example: red, fruity, cherry), and Hello Vino will recommend the perfect bottle for every occasion.
WINE LABEL SCANNER - Ever purchased a wine based on the label design? Now you actually have a good excuse! Snap a pic of the front wine label and Hello Vino will tell your about the wine (tasting notes, ratings, food pairings, etc.) - you can even order more of that delicious vino through the app.
REMEMBER EVERY WINE - You'll never forget another wine with Hello Vino's photographic memory. Simply snap a pic and take a quick note to remember all of your wine purchases. You can also rate and share your favorite bottles via Facebook, Twitter & email.
WINE SEARCH ENGINE - Powered by wine-searcher.com, the industry's largest and most reliable wine search engine, the database includes more than 6 million wines.
COMMUNITY WINE RATINGS - Consumer ratings are now available, contributed by our community of more than 2 million Hello Vino app users.
WINE GUIDE - An incredible dictionary of wine varieties. And, by popular demand (we’ve literally received hundreds of requests), you can use the app ”in reverse“ by getting food pairings and recipes based on the wine you already have. For example, if you already have a nice bottle of Pinot Noir, the app will suggest types of foods that pair well (with recipes powered by Yummly!).
WINE PRO ON-CALL - Speak to a LIVE PERSON to help with your wine buying. It’s like having your very own wine expert on-demand. We have a team of wine-educated assistants based in California wine country, ready to help you find the perfect bottle.
INSIDER WINE DEALS - Our wine experts have hand-picked the best wine deals available online. We also have promo codes for 1-cent shipping and even wine gift cards & vouchers (while they last). You can also easily buy wines using Apple Pay.
FOOD & WINE PAIRINGS - Whether it's pepperoni pizza, filet mignon, or even mac & cheese, Hello Vino has the largest food and wine pairing database in all the App Store. Simply choose your dish, then the app will tell you the best wine for the meal.
WINE GIFT IDEAS - Need to bring a killer bottle of wine to your next festivus? Hello Vino has you covered with wine recommendations for every occasion (date night, holidays, dinner with the boss, etc.).

Nice app that needs a few tweaks
I really like this app. It lets you enter the wines you own, as any good wine app should, a company it with a photo and flesh it out with your own notes. What I didn't like was that I found no way to delete a wine once you entered it. It does provide the option to delete except, it really doesn't delete it. The intruding wine will just show up again after deleting it like a paranormal haunting. I really like the layout of the app and the colors that accompany it. However the thumbnails of the wine listings are way to small and need to be larger. And the app does not rotate to vertical mode. It stays horizontal which I find very un user friendly. One big plus is the app does not require you to register to use it, although you may get more enjoyment out of it if you do. It would also be nice to have region maps of the wines. Otherwise I really like this app. The three main issues if corrected would make this a great pick. The wine recommendations by meal and taste is quite nice.
I love this app, but...
I am a newbie in the wine world and I really enjoy this app. It's not based on social interaction like Delectable, which I hate, but gives you details about all wines. I've had it for a year now and it has helped choosing wines for meals, based on what I've enjoyed, and my taste (and budget)! It's great that we can save our own wines but I agree with the other review: we should be able to edit the entry after we saved it. I'd also like to see the ads-free feature to be cheaper. There's no reason to ask for $3 to remove ads.
I Love Wine
No really I do, and I promised myself that I would use this app more often this year to track the wines I like. This is a simple, useful, friendly, and fairly deep application. I don't use all its features, although I have explored everything this app has to offer; in fact, I really only use it to track the wines I drink, but it's free and like I said it's fairly deep depending on how much you intend to use of it. I like it so it gets 4 stars. There are some features I wish it had, but it's no reason not to get it.
