Wine App for Apple iPhone – Hello Vino

Today we discovered a site and really cool application called “Hello Vino” for the iPhone.  Having just added it to ours, we’ve not had the pleasure of fully testing it out but we wanted to share it with you.

There’s not many apps for iPhone that provide this in depth of an experience that we’ve encountered. Hope you enjoy it, we think it’s really cool 🙂

If you have or know or a Wine App for the iPhone, please leave us a link in the comments so we can investigate it and give a review. We’re hoping the “Hello Vino” app will be all it’s graped up to be.

  • Gamay – – rabbit, beef, shallots, sausages, pork roast, roast poultry, turkey, ham
  • Gewurztraminer – Asian cuisines and pork-based sausages
  • Grenache – herbed meatballs, roasted pheasant, corned beef
  • Merlot – roast duck, beef stew, most red meats
  • Nebbiolo – flavorful meats, cheeses, spicy Italian meats and aged Parmesan cheese
  • Pinot Noir -pork, pasts,fish stew, and Chinese food
