Powerful instant wine label recognition app released for oenophiles

June 22, 2014

Wine-AppWine buyers may be able shave some time in the liquor aisles with the help of a powerful revamped wine app that provides ratings, tasting notes and descriptions via real-time label recognition.

Called Delectable, the updated wine app has the stamp of approval from wine expert Jancis Robinson, who called the label-recognition app a reliable, accurate “brilliant piece of programming.”

Here’s how it works: Users take a photo of the wine label and get instant identification — averaging 2.6 seconds — of the wine maker, wine name, grapes and region.

Ratings and reviews are available from both professionals — winemakers, sommeliers and wine journalists — and the Delectable community.

The latest updates also allow users to add favorite bottles to a digital album, add ratings, tag friends, locations and make wine purchases.

While several label-recognition wine apps exist — Vivino, Wine-searcher, Cor.kz — JancisRobinson.com heaped unrestrained praise on Delectable, calling it the best on the market.

“It defeats every other label-recognition app on the market for one simple reason: it identified every label 100% accurately with no corrections required.”
