Delectable Wines allows you to view ratings for your favourite wines or for wines you’re deliberating over at the bottle shop as well as post your own thoughts.

The app allows you to follow friends via other social media channels to see what’s popular in your circles. You can also follow the picks of popular sommeliers and winemakers to see what’s new and worthy of a sip (or two!)

The database is huge and ever growing. I tested the app with a cheeky pic of one of my parent’s Semillon. They own a very new and very small vineyard in the Hunter so the chances of their lovely drop appearing in an international database already was pretty slim.

No surprises, they didn’t recognise the label immediately. My actual shock came when 20 seconds later I received a notification saying that the vintage had been added by their wine experts for me to rate. Anyone that takes their wine this seriously and is this on-pulse with tech has my vote!

For Americans you can now also purchase your vino directly via the app. Don’t worry they’re rolling out international shopping shortly too!

With the Delectable Wines app you can share your fav picks with your social channels, see what wines you might like for next time and never pick a poor plonk on a quick bottle shop trip again!
