    Great app for wine reviews and scores. The 100 point system is useful (better than the 5-point system, in my opinion) and Galloni has put together a rockstar group of critics. Between this and Delectable, my wine tech bases are covered!
  • Vinous is the way to go!

    Thank god Galloni left the WA to create Vinous, and thank god I can have Vinous in my pocket! Quite literally, I now have tens of thousands of reviews in my pocket with the app, and now Neal Martin’s banter to boot. Jump ship from WA...Vinous is the way to go.
  • Sleek and easy to use

    I love the app when I’m choosing new wines I haven’t tried before and I want to make sure they’re worth the money. It looks like other users don’t like to sign in with google or Facebook but as I use google for most things I don’t have a problem with it.
  • The reviews are what matter

    There is no question that Vinous has the best reviewers and that's what counts. I use this app all the time when trying to choose wines. It has saved me thousands of dollars of bad choices. Galloni says it's bad an I steer clear. Tanzer likes a wine... good investment. I get that it is annoying for some people to pay for good information but if you pay peanuts (or nothing) you should get monkeys (or nothing. Really helpful app. Good tools. Nice to look at. All good.
  • The best app for wine lovers...

    Hands down the best app for wine. Whether I’m shopping, trying to pick out a bottle at a restaurant or deciding how to bulk up my cellar, Vinous is my go-to.
  • Thought it might be cool

    By thought this would be neat
    I had this app and thought it would be cool To compare wines I’ve rated to a pro. Turns out they are now charging you for that feature and a lot ... a lot of wines are not even rated. It’s like following someone on Instagram and not being able to have your own input.

    On an iPad, the app will not turn to landscape. You cannot search for articles, only wines. It keeps forgetting that I am logged in. It cannot connect with the Delectable app, despite having a button to do so. Also, I signed up for the monthly subscription, and that means that a lot of the content is not accessible. If the article has multiple parts, like an article on Castello di Arma, when you click on the next part of the article, it kicks out to the website (instead of staying in the app), which the monthly subscription doesn’t give access to. So you can read the intro, but none of the content. In short, if you’re not going to sign up for the $140/year, I’m not sure what you get. The scores are available other places for free, Delectable gives the reviews for a monthly charges and also more wines community rated as well, and you can’t get complete articles or search articles without the website.
  • Ditto. Useless app.

  • Easy to get stuck

    When you're navigating through to various parts of the app, it easy to find yourself without a back button or a menu item to select. However I did find that the top section is where you swipe 'back' to see previous pages. Clever, but not too clear. Wish the articles were more interesting, and the content more helpful without having to pay. Such as 'try a week of vinous for free before paying'.
