Delectable Wine Helps You Remember Great Vintages

Screen Shot 2013-09-20 at 2.28.50 AMRemembering great bottles of wine can be a challenge. Delectable Wine wants to solve this problem by giving you a location to store lists of your favorite wines and help you discover other wines that you might like.

The free iOS app uses your phone’s camera to take a photo of a wine bottle’s label. It then scans the label to match it with the bottle that you are drinking and gives you the name of the winemaker, the vintage and the wine name. The app includes a wine journal, so you can save notes on your favorite wines. There is also a social component, so you can follow your friends and sommeliers to get recommendations about other bottles. The app has more than 2 million wines in its database and almost a million users.

Here is more about how it works:

Simply take a picture of the wine and we’ll do the rest! Delectable’s comprehensive database of wines combined with unparalleled photo recognition (plus our team of wine experts to guarantee accuracy) makes remembering the wines you are drinking, learning about them, and buying them again easier than ever.
