The Indian Wine List is an exclusive wine and food pairing app that helps you select the type of wine to match your delicacy. The app has a very clean and simple user interface. The home screen greets you with the Wine and Food Pairing Guide, a Wine Catalogue, a Monthly Selection and even a virtual cellar.
The Wine and Food Pairing Guide lists various categories of food such as Salads, Pizza, Meat, Sushi and even Indian Dishes. These items further have a sub menu listing the types of delicacies. For instance, if you enter the Cheese section, it has 6 different types of cheese. When you tap on any one, you get a list of wines to choose from that you can pair with.
The wine details include a bottle image with the name, a tasting note stating the contents of the wine, a pairing note suggesting other delicacies to pair with, serving and storage temperatures and the price per bottle. The bottom of this screen gives options to find similar wines, add it to your virtual cellar and even tweet about it.
The IWL wine catalogue features eight Indian wineries; Sula, Vallonne, York, Reveilo, Fratteli, Four Seasons, Good Earth and Zampa and lists 78 wines from across these vineyards. You can choose your wine on the basis of the type of Grape, Ocassion and the Winery.
The Monthly Selection menu gives you updates on food and wine pairings at select restaurants. These include an image of the dish, pairing notes, the price of the dish, the price per glass of the recommended wine and the restaurant serving it with contact details.
You can always visit your in-app cellar to view the list of wines you've chosen either to try out yourself or perhaps gift it to someone.
Currently, only the iOS version of the app is available. However, Android users will be able to experience the app in May. The Indian Wine List app is a first of its kind in India and tells you more or less everything you need to know about certain types of wines. So if you'd like to be known as the wine connoisseur around your block, this is the app for you.
