Canada’s First Wine & Food Mobile App

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Natalie MacLean, the woman behind Nat Decants, has just released Canada’s first wine and food mobile app. Natalie MacLean is a wine writer, speaker and judge. An accredited sommelier, she is a member of the National Capital Sommelier Guild and the Wine Writers Circle. She has also written a book about wine: Red, White and Drunk All Over.

The new, free mobile application for iPhone, iPod Touch, BlackBerry, Droid and other smartphones was developed by Cerado, and includes:

  • 380,000 professionally tested food and wine pairings not generated by computer algorithm
  • Access thousands of wine reviews by an independent journalist rather than by the wine store or winery that represents the wines
  • Search the reviews by winery, price, score, region, grape, vintage, food match, LCBO product code
  • Check how many bottles of a particular wine are in LCBO stores (you can narrow this by your postal code to see what’s in your closest stores)
  • Track your wines in your virtual cellar and add your own journal notes and scores
  • Search a directory of 10,000+ wineries to buy wine or plan a visit
  • Find thousands of tasty, tested recipes for every wine
  • Get wine savvy with articles, glossary definitions & blog posts
  • Share on Twitter, Facebook and e-mail with friends
