The user interface is highly suitable for the iOS and makes this reference tool so much more accessible than it would otherwise be as a cumbersome book. Each of the entries is alphabetized but users are likely better off using the interactive Appendix featured in this app.
The content of this app is vast and varied. You will learn about grape varieties, wine styles, places of origin, techniques used to make wines, and basically everything else you need to know about any given wine. Users will also get access to a glossary of terms which they can easily look up if they come across a confusing jargon term in this app or at a party.
This app will hold your hand right from teaching you what to look out for when purchasing wine, to the correct temperature for serving the wine. Learn about the glass styles, bottles, and openers along with the perfect pairings for specific food items.
