First of, I do have an account on Vivino. I admit I’m not the most frequent user, but I am trying to post more. The problem for me is that I usually take a picture of the wine and then later I post it on instagram or something, and I always forget about Vivino…
Anyone use it? Love it? Hate it?
Know of any good accounts to follow?
Any tips are welcomed!
For those who are not familiar, Vivino is an app created for those of you who either like reviewing wines or for those who like reading wine reviews. Many consumers will read reviews before purchasing, either in a wine magazine like Decanter or online. The app is an easy way to get quick access to wine reviews. If you want to review a wine you can also read what other people thought of that same wine. It’s a pretty good tool, and I want to get better at using it.
Hi, I experimented with Vivino a few years ago, but for some reason it didn’t always recognize the pictures I took of the labels… So I gave up after a while. I think cellartracker is an interesting alternative.
I have experienced the same problem with vivino as well. Hey, thanks for your comment. I will download Cellartracker and check it out!
I find it very reliable – occasionally it doesn’t recognise a label (1 in 15 or so maybe) but it’s easy to enter the wine manually. It’s fun *and* useful – I have learnt a lot from reading other people’s reviews, and been introduced to some cracking wines.
Henry C-R on Vivino.
