Make a Wine Selection

For many of us, the thought of finding the right wine for our meal can be a daunting undertaking. I'm no wine expert by any means, but I do have some friends that take their wine seriously, and I'm a bit fearful of choosing the wrong one. Thankfully there's an app for that. These are the two best apps I've found to make pairing a great wine with my meal easy.

Pocket Wine Pairing

Food and wine pairing has never been so clear, accessible and easy to understand.

Pocket Wine Pairing

Pocket Wine Pairing

For those who are looking for a great wine to pair with a specific meal

This app takes the mystery out of pairing and gives you all the guidance, information and examples you need to make successful pairings every time. It has a detailed index of all sorts of meal types, so you can find the best match for the meal you're preparing. Although Pocket Wine Pairing has most everything one would want to pair a wine with their meal, there is an optional upgrade that will allow you to receive access to all the content in the Pocket Wine app, which unlocks the complex world of wine and gives you an insight that has taken others years to achieve.

Why we love it

The Pocket Wine app is one of the best all-around wine apps available. This app concentrates on specifically the wine pairing section. It is comprehensive, and easy to use.

Wine4.Me

Wine4.Me helps you find a great wine for your favorite dish or special occasion

Wine4.Me

Wine4.Me Pairing

For those who want to learn more about wine and wine pairing

You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy wine. Wine4.Me helps you explore wine with confidence by offering you personalized wine rankings based on your own unique taste profile. All the wines in Wine4.Me’s extensive database are objectively analyzed one by a team of wine evaluators, who can pinpoint wine characteristics with a 90% repeat rate, which is pretty stellar. This data is intricately indexed by patent-pending technology and passed through the company’s proprietary algorithm that compares the profile of each wine to your taste profile to offer personalized wine rankings. Worried about finding a great wine? Wine4.Me’s wine selections are widely available at many stores and wine outlets across the country.

Why we love it

Learning about wine can sometimes be an intimidating adventure. Wine4.Me does a great job of educating non-wine experts, and gives them the knowledge they need to feel free to explore.

Make a List and Check It Twice

Once you've found the recipes you need to make your holiday meal one to remember, it's time to shop for groceries. I oftentimes find it a hassle to walk around the grocery store with my list in one hand and a pen in the other. Thankfully, these apps make grocery trips a little better. Try them out and see which one works for you.
