Vivino Wine Tasting App with Bottle Image Recognition


YouTube link

Vivino is a cool app from a couple of wine entrepreneurs in Denmark who have created an app with a database of over half a million bottles and 12,000 wineries throughout the world. The app has a unique spin on a wine app by offering image recognition of wine bottles. From the above video, we see some of the features include:

  • Identify and remember wines with image recognition.
  • Database of 500K wines.
  • Read more about the wine including description, where to buy, etc.
  • Like, dislike and review the wine.
  • Share the wine with friends.

Another cool feature of Vivino is that it’s available cross-platform on iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7. To download for BlackBerry, head over to

    I did a quick test on my 9700 with the app and it is EXTREMELY difficult to use. Certain buttons can’t be selected, unless your cursor is in “select” mode. The text fields are seemingly non-standard and sometimes misses key-presses. I don’t know how they did it, but it is painful…

    Oh, and you can’t exit the app. Too bad, I was looking for an app like this. This app is a failure. I don’t recommend anyone install this.
