Approach Guides Wine for iPad

The wine professionals’ guide to the world’s wines

Breaking from the pervasive model of 100-point ratings in favor of descriptions that communicate the essence of wines, Approach Guides is the first app that empower users to make informed wine choices by providing detailed, country-specific profiles of regions, appellations, grape varieties and vintages.  This unique approach has made Approach Guides the most respected wine app on the market, used by professionals and consumers around the world, from New York City to London to Hong Kong.

Why create an iPad-specific version?

We made a decision early on to build two device-specific apps — for the the iPhone and iPad — rather than a universal one in order to create the ideal experience for our users. One of the most powerful features of the app is the rather transparent database operating in the background that links countries, regions, appellations and grape varieties. Displaying these connections is rather complex and can only be truly optimized by crafting a unique product for each device.

Future releases

The Approach Guides Wine app for iPad currently features the wines of Argentina, Australia, New ZealandChile, France, GermanyItaly, Spain, and USA (Napa, Sonoma, Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and Washington State). Buy now and look forward to our regular, FREE updates as new countries and regions are added.
