Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States said: “Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.” How true is this statement. As John Green had said in “The Fault in Our Stars”, champagne is “stars in a bottle”. Robert Louis Stevenson said wine is “bottled poetry”.
We can’t deny how erotically stimulative wine makes us feel and the older the wine is, the better. However, choosing the perfect wine can be as difficult as choosing the perfect Singapore’s web design. It is not always an easy task to choose a bottle of wine that we will actually end up enjoying. Do we go make a purchase based on the price, past experience, popularity, a combination of all three factors above or some other factors?
In today’s article, allow us to share with you some wine recommendation apps that might help you solve the above mentioned dilemma.
Early versions of wine apps were quick to react to what kind of information the user wanted to know, how would they want the information to be delivered and where was the user located when they accessed the information.
Today’s wine recommendation apps provided more than that. It takes note of the specific occasion that compelled the user to purchase a bottle of wine.
That’s Fiasco, an iPhone app that combines the user’s taste preferences with the occasion to recommend the perfect wine. Upon opening the app for the first time, the user has to answer a few simple questions to yield a fledgling taste profile (which keep on evolving as the ap is used more) to fortify that Fiasco will suggest a wine that the user will enjoy. When the user has to choose a wine, Fiasco requires its users to start by picking a “proxy” for the occasion(which could be date night or a gift for a friend) and provide secondary information such as food pairings or price range to recommend the ideal wine. To keep things interesting, Fiasco also include fun facts and characteristics of the selection with the recommendation.
Vintank is not a wine recommendation app. It is actually a Napa-based digital think tank for the wine industry, dedicated to the task of decrypting social technology to make it comprehensible and relevant for a winery’s specific brand.
VinTank examined, aggregated and scrutinized online wine conversations to draw out pertinent conversations related to brand, region or variety which empowered them to build a vast database of individuals and their wine preferences.
Drync is a free app that provides reviews and comments for wines listed in its database, which searches databases such as WineZap, Wine Search, Snooth and others. It allows users to scan, track, share and purchase wine immediately as well as providing a place to make tasting notes when the user sips the wine.
Drync is not the only app that furnishes image recognition of labels. Delectable does that too, and in addition to its photo-taking interface, Delectable’s users can search wines by winemaker, grape and vineyard. It also allows its users to add ratings to the wines once they are consumed.
