Wine Maps provides a handy visual reference, for the wine regions in twenty countries around the world. Its a great tool for anyone looking to learn more about the world of wine, and even better for those looking for maps to study from. Its perfect for those teaching others about wine, and Wine Maps can even provide printouts of its maps using Air Print (which can be used in a commercial setting).
Wine Maps focuses exclusively on mapping the wine regions of the world. It offers one hundred and sixteen static maps, defining the wine regions. It is NOT an encyclopaedia of wine, and does not give any textual definitions or comment. Wine Maps is a purely visual reference, which allows you to search for the location of a wine region. With the exception of the top wineries in Bordeaux, individual vineyards do not appear on the maps. There's just too many of them!
Each map is one or two taps away from the main screen. Simply choose from the main wine region list, and you instantly have a map of that region. You can search for regions by name, and Wine Maps will neatly zoom into its location. Each map has the wine regions clearly presented, along with rivers, cities, and major towns.
Wine Maps is also bundled with a companion app for your Apple TV. Allowing you to show of your wine knowledge, and TV simultaneously!

Ratings and Reviews
Best in its class, a work in progress...
Don’t be fooled by my title; wine maps will always be a work in progress. You will NOT find a better wine map app at $.99. Even electronic wine books with maps are not as nicely portrayed as those in this app. As the developer continues to refine current content and add new maps, which he certainly intends to do as indicated by the version history, this app will easily attain 5 Stars.
A note about the navigation system: It is clean and simple. And while I found myself wanting to either navigate or explore additional information within the actual maps, I quickly adapted to using only the search and drop down menu. It would be a considerable amount of work—but worthy of an additional purchase option, if active navigation within maps could be used to display pop-up information about the selected region.
Great for novice and professionals!
This map has helped me with my staff and introducing them to new regions. It has also been amazing while I study, maps are crucial in the Somm world and this has been so helpful for me on the go!
This app is amazing! I love all the details, you can zoom into a specific area, AND YOU CAN PRINT IT!
I’d love to see grape varietals along with the regions. Perhaps that would be difficult, especially with new world wines.
Anyhow, glad I purchased it, for ONLY .99 cents :)
