Hello Vino – Wine Recommendations by Drive Thru Interactive is the perfect app for wine drinkers – both connoisseurs and newbies included! The app give recommendations on which wines taste good with different meals, which wines are good to drink on certain holidays or special occasions and which wines go well with your taste preference. Now, before I get too far into my review, you should know it’s coming from someone who’s fairly new to drinking wine. I’ll be honest for a second, only to tell you that I couldn’t tell a red wine from a white wine! With that being said, Hello Vino is nearly a necessity for someone like me!
Beyond recommendations and food pairings, Hello Vino has another feature that I just love! It’s called the Wine Label Image Recognition. You can take a picture of the wine you want to purchase or already have purchased, and Hello Vino will give you all kinds of information on that particular wine including tasting notes, ratings and of course amazing food pairings! Hello Vino’s wine database is huge, so it’s sure to have info on the wine you’re looking into buying! I’ve learned more about wine from Hello Vino in one day than I’ve learned in all my life! Love this app!

You don’t need to know anything about wine to use Hello Vino. All you have to do is tell the app what you’re eating, or provide your taste preferences, and Hello Vino will help you pick the perfect bottle off the shelf.
WINE LABEL IMAGE RECOGNITION
Ever purchased a wine based on the design of its label? Now you actually have a good excuse! Snap a pic of the wine label and Hello Vino will give you all the goods (tasting notes, ratings, food pairings and more!).
NEVER FORGET ANOTHER WINE
Just in case you’re having trouble remembering that delicious wine you tasted last night, Hello Vino will help you easily save and track all the wines you love (and hate).
Whether it’s pepperoni pizza, filet mignon, or even mac & cheese, Hello Vino will give you recommendations for the best wines to pair with your meal.
Need to bring a killer bottle of wine to your next festivus? Hello Vino has you covered with wine recommendations for every occasion (date night, holidays, dinner with the boss, etc.).
LARGEST WINE DATABASE
We tied down a dozen sommeliers and plugged their brains into our supermegacomputer in order to bring you the world’s most detailed wine database.
We get by with a little help from our friends. Your new friend and Certified Sommelier Elizabeth Schneider has provided “quick wine reviews” that break down widely available wines that you can find in your local store. Take a listen to the 2-minute audio reviews that talk about the wine in a “normal” way (not wine “geek speak”).
