Rated best app for wine shoppers by NY Times, NPR, Mashable - Hello Vino is your personal wine assistant. This all-in-one wine app gives you wine recommendations for meals, occasions, holidays, and also based on your taste preferences. NO SNOBS ALLOWED!

"Hello Vino can help almost anyone navigate a wine list." - NY Times

"This app is incredible. Even the newest wine drinkers should feel at ease..." - Mashable

"If you want to impress your date, pull up Hello Vino to make it look like you know whether to order a Zinfandel or a Malbec." - NPR Morning Edition

IF YOU LOVE WINE, but you don't know much about all the obscure grape varieties, regions, vintages or other wine geek-speak, this app is for you.

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, 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 wine label and Hello Vino will tell your about the wine (tasting notes, ratings, food pairings, etc.) and you can even order more of that delicious vino through the app.

REMEMBER EVERY WINE - Now 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.

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)!

WINE REVIEWS FOR "NORMAL" PEOPLE - Wine podcast celebrity (and Certified Sommelier) Elizabeth Schneider's audio wine reviews include wines you can actually find in your local store (instead of obscure wines only the wine geeks drink). Take a listen to her reviews that cut out the snobbery and explain wine in a "normal" way.

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.).

What's New in Version 3.7.1

This "vintage 3.7" release has a beautiful design upgrade for iOS 7, along with these MAJOR improvements and additions to the Hello Vino app:

BRAND NEW WINE LABEL SCANNER - We've completely replaced the image recognition technology, and added REAL-TIME wine label identification by our team. That's correct - if the label scanner doesn't return a response right away, we'll personally identify the wine label in a matter of seconds.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The wine label image recognition in earlier versions of the app will no longer work - please update to version 3.7 today.

YOUR WINE PHOTOS NOW IN "THE CLOUD" - We want to make sure you never lose your wine photos when you upgrade your device, so we're now backing up all beautiful pics up in "the cloud" so you can access them on both your iPhone and iPad (and even our web site).

OVER 10,000 NEW WINES available through our revolutionary wine recommendation engine. The app will suggest the perfect wines according to your personal taste preferences, meals and special occasions, while also directing you to nearby stores for purchase (or you can simply order through the app).

EXPERT REVIEWS FOR THE NEW YEAR - Our wine expert has new reviews to help you with wines that are sure to impress (while also helping you avoid some disasters).

THOUSANDS OF DELICIOUS FOOD & WINE PAIRINGS - If the beautiful photos aren't enough to get you hungry and thirsty, we've added even more dishes to our incredibly comprehensive food & wine pairing section.

-- NOTES FOR 3.7.1 --

This release includes a fix for a bug that some iPhone 4/4S users were experiencing with the label scanner. Special thanks to Roger F. for discovering it, reaching out, and working with us on squashing the bug!

As always, email with any issues, questions or suggestions. We sincerely appreciate all the love and feedback.

Customer Reviews

Fun and responsive

My friends and I have had a great deal of fun trying wines and comparing our thoughts to reviews on hello vino, and I love the various ways to pick mood or adventure. I was disappointed in the pairings with food, emailed the experts about what I found lacking, and was extremely pleased to receive a personal and prompt answer! I cannot say enough how fantastic this is! The people behind the ap care to make it better for the end user, and welcome suggestions. I'm a believer.

Hello Vino

I really like your site and have entered all of my wines. I would rate you five stars if you would let me sort my wines by red or white! Also the sorting by date in my wines does not work. Take care of these and you are ***** by me!


2/5/14. Your updated version looks good but is not easy to use (IPad). I like to keep my wine inventory and tasting notes. You have made it harder to do that!

Great app-in-progress

The most useful thing about this app, for me, is keeping track of wines and what I thought of them. There are a few quirks, like it doesn't automatically capitalize like most apps do, and I find a lot of the other stuff extraneous, but it's beautiful and I find it very helpful.
