This app does not sell brands or specific wines. Instead, winebuff approaches wine like a real pro. Our information comes from studying the grape, region, climate and terroir and will even turn the novice wine quaffer into a connoisseur in no time.

With over 400 regions (and counting) winebuff is a powerful tool for any wine enthusiast. Whether it is that Chablis left over from the dinner party or that champers you’ve been saving, winebuff will inform you of what to expect and even suggest a food pairing.

Question: How does winebuff work when it doesn’t describe individual, branded wines?

Answer: Most wine regions are carefully regulated and must follow certain rules. This means that different appellations will produce wine of a certain character based on the grape varieties, geography and production methods allowed.

Question: I don’t know anything about wine. Is this useful to me?

Answer: winebuff is an easy to use reference for wines. It is deliberately made simple to leave out all the unimportant information and instead focuses on the relevant and interesting - perfect for any budding wine enthusiast.
