It’s like having a shopping bag full of wine fact sheets and tasting notes all easily accessible on your smart phone.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
The 8th Annual San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival recently partnered with Hello Vino to provide a free mobile app so attendees could save and remember their favorite wines on their smartphones.
The Grand Finale of the five-day festival was the Grand Tasting Event on the Embarcadero Park North behind Seaport Village, where purveyors poured over 800 wines. Event-goers were introduced to the free Hello Vino app when visiting tasting tables throughout the day.
Hello Vino, a free mobile app available for both iPhone and Android devices, recommends the perfect type of wine for a meal, specific occasion, or by personal taste preference. The new release of Hello Vino 2.0 allows consumers to save wines, submit notes, ratings, and create shopping lists. The app also provides a simple point-and-shoot feature which allows users to snap a picture of a wine label to receive tasting notes, food pairings, and both professional and consumer ratings.
“It has become common for wine event attendees to snap pictures of wine labels to remember their favorites,” remarks Jim Kopp, VP of Strategic Development at Hello Vino. “With Hello Vino, they are able to save the label image, receive complete information on the wine, store, rate, and comment on their discoveries. It’s like having a shopping bag full of wine fact sheets and tasting notes all easily accessible on your smartphone."
The free Hello Vino apps currently serve hundreds of thousands of wine recommendations to shoppers every month. To assist wineries at events, the company offers the ability to pre-load wines being poured into its database, customizing the app experience for the wine consumer.
