Wine Wednesday is short and sweet this week because mama bear has been slightly under the weather after a very hectic weekend of organizing, hosting, and drinking far too much delicious wine at dad’s 75th birthday party in Montreal… But if you’re reading this, I know you are a lover of good wine! Are you often stumped on choosing one? Can’t remember the name of a delicious wine you ordered a while back (maybe ’cause you had one glass too many)? Looking for new suggestions? Well, download Vivino and all your wine problems are solved!
This app blends the functionality of Twitter/Instagram by following and having followers, as well as having geo-tagging so you can look up wines at nearby LCBOs and restaurants. Having just started using this app, my favourite part is that if anyone has tried a wine at a nearby location, you can get its tasting notes, its ratings and before spending that $30 to $60, decide whether it’s worth the purchase. The feed is also fun – you know how you get addicted to running through the photo feed on Instagram? Imagine this feed only being wine labels… a little piece of heaven right there! You may see a wine you’ve always wanted to try but have never known if it was good or bad. This feed will tell you that. And if you find a wine that you love, take a picture of the label and post it – your followers will totally appreciate the feedback. Nowadays, nobody likes to spend their hard-earned cash on a bottle of wine that’s a lemon!
I highly recommend getting on this app – totally easy to get started. Download Vivino on the App Store or in Google Play and sign in through Facebook. Then you’re ready to go. Follow me at ViewtheVibe – you know I’ll be posting regularly! Or think you know wines better than everyone else? Get on this app and help out the rest of us who just enjoy a really good glass of vino. You’ll be the most popular kid in class, I promise you that!
