There are many wine pairing and tasting apps available for smartphones right now, but few people know which source to trust for their decisions. Wine Spectator, one of the most trusted and reliable wine publications in the United States, has just made choosing a wine app easier by releasing their own. WineRatings+ was designed to help users pick a wine for whatever upcoming occasion might be on the calendar, but it also contains a myriad of other useful features. The publication explains that the app is for connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike.

Free Version of the App Gives Users World-Class Expertise

The app is currently only available for the iPhone and the iPod Touch, but the basic version is absolutely free. Although users can also pay for premium content, the free version of the app is outstanding on its own. With the free version, users can browse the extensive vintage wine charts created by the experts behind the publication. They can also watch video exclusive to the app and read informative articles about wine on the real-time news feed. Editor and publisher at Wine Spectator, Marvin R. Shanken, explains that even the free version of the app will prove to be the most comprehensive and worldly wine app available on the market.

Premium Version Stacked with Endless Features

As if the free version wasn’t helpful enough, the premium content can be accessed for $2.99 a month and will prove to be the wine-lover’s bible. No longer will you need to stand in the wine shop feeling dazed and confused at all of your options. For example, the premium app will provide access to more than 270,000 wine reviews so that users can make educated judgments anywhere they need to. Whether on a classy first date or looking for a good Chardonnay to go with your Chinese takeout, the reviews will provide expert insight on the go.

Even if you don’t opt for the premium version of the app, downloading it will be like hiring a personal sommelier to assist in all of your fine wine decisions. It brings the Wine Spectator publication to life by giving you the expertise and advice typical to the magazine right at your fingertips in any situation. If you’ve ever found yourself feeling intimidated by all of the wine options at a fancy restaurant or your local wine shop, the app is worth a download.
