It’s no secret that I love my wine. And although I’m no expert, I’ve got to the stage where I’m interested enough to start recording my thoughts about wine that we’ve tried and liked, and want to know what other people think about wines.
I was delighted, then, when I heard about Vivino. Vivino is an app (I’ve got it on my phone and my iPad) that’s all about wine. I can’t quite decide which bit of it I like best. I must admit to enjoying whipping out my phone, taking a photo of any wine label and watching as the app instantly finds the wine. I can then add it to my cellar, or record my own thoughts about it, and have a look at what other people think of it. Vivino also tells you the average price that people are paying per bottle.
I’ve been using the app for a while now and one of things I’m enjoying is the sense of community. You can follow friends (and make new ones – Vivino recommends ‘featured’ users – look out for me!), chat about wine, get awesome recommendations and recommend your favourites to others. There’s absolutely no snobbery, and while there are plenty of very knowledgeable people using the app, there are lots of people like me who enjoy the odd glass of wine and are interested in learning more.
And with the festive season right around the corner, there’s never been a better time to join. So what are you waiting for? Never drink bad wine again!
