Uptown Network today announced that Shula’s 347 Grill has expanded their iPad Wine List well beyond wines. The upgraded app now allows guests to explore food such as desserts and cocktails, beer and martinis. There is even an extensive selection of single malt scotch.

“We have definitely seen an uptick in wine sales based on our introduction of the Uptown Network iPad Wine List,” said Francesco Balli, the Managing Partner of Shula’s 347 Grill in Coral Gables, FL. “One of the biggest advantages of rolling out this app, is the “WOW” factor that patrons will remember. We completely eliminated our traditional paper printed wine lists and only use the iPad Personal Sommelier. We have now expanded its benefits to so much more.”

In addition to being available in the restaurant, the Shula’s 347 Grill app is available to anyone with an iPad for free. The app can be downloaded by searching ‘Personal Sommelier’ on Apple’s App Store.

“People love it! Because of its versatile search-ability, it helps give all of our wines a great chance of being purchased, not just the big movers,” said Balli. “It’s another item that makes dining with us that much more special, not just another night out to dinner.”

“We are excited to see our customers expanding the value of our app and network,” said Phil Turner, VP of Research and Development at Uptown Network. “Shula’s 347 Grill wisely has increased their offerings to over 70 million iPad users.”
