Hello Vino is your virtual wine assistant. Buying wine is fun and easy with Hello Vino's recommendations for food and wine pairings, special occasions and personalized wine picks based on your taste preferences. -- HOW IT WORKS -- Similar to getting help from a wine expert, simply tap through Hello Vino's question-and-answer interface to find the perfect bottle for thousands of meals, special occasions, and flavor profiles. The Hello Vino app uses artificial intelligence to learn about your wine preferences. As you tap through the choices, scan wine labels and rate your favorites, the app will make new wine recommendations based on your activity and settings. Wine should be fun, not overwhelming or intimidating. Hello Vino has a strict NO SNOBS ALLOWED policy. -- APP FEATURES -- RECOMMENDATIONS - Choose your wine buying occasion (dinner, party gift, etc.) or provide your taste preferences (example: red wine, fruity, cherry flavors), and Hello Vino will recommend the perfect bottle. WINE FOR YOU - Wine is personal, and so is Hello Vino. Get personalized wine picks by setting your price range and specific taste preferences. FOOD & WINE PAIRINGS - Tap into Hello Vino's incredible database of food and wine pairings. Simply choose your dish, then the app will tell you the best wine for the meal. WINE LABEL SCANNER - Scan wines, save personal notes and ratings to remember all of your favorites. COMMUNITY WINE RATINGS - Consumer ratings on wines contributed by our community of more than 2 million Hello Vino app users. WINE GUIDE - An incredible dictionary of wine varieties with audio pronunciations, flavor profile descriptions and food pairings (with recipes powered by BigOven). WINE GIFT IDEAS - Need wine recommendations for a special occasion (date night, holidays, dinner with the boss)? We've got you covered. -- SUPPORT -- Please send feedback and support issues to help@hellovino.com for a quick response.



  • Good concept, poor execution

    Very limited number of wines in their database, and I very quickly found out that their tasting notes are the exact same for every single one of their Sauvignon Blancs. I’m hoping that with time they will improve the app.
  • Great!

    Very helpful- makes selections easy for meals. I recommend this to anyone expert or bovine.
  • Best wine app hands down

    By GorhamSt
    I have been using this for some time now and have gotten the updates over the years and just love the newer version. I have tried the other wine apps too like "Vivino", "delectable", etc., but this app is great for all wine lovers and I love how the latest version follows your preferences. It just seems like a big jump vs the other apps. It's funny because when I am out with friends we talk about how hello vino is not only great for the novice, but it is also an excellent app for someone who has enjoyed wine for years.
  • Perfect

    Just the app I was looking for. Downside is I cant order wines even though I'm 18, the legal age to drink in my country, and to order through the app you must be 21+
  • Great app!

    My go to source for choosing wines for gifts or to complement my meals! Fast, easy to use, and never disappoints!
  • Great app!

    Finally I can save the wines I like because so many times I forget them. Great upgrade, going to order wine through this now.

  • I want to like this app

    I think the premise is good, the AI was attractive to me, has a nice layout, but I have a few issues. FYI, I am $4.99 into this app, so I can scan. For instance, when I look up a wine type, like Bordeaux, or a maker, when I click the individual wines nothing happens. Also, there is no way to go to the next page on a long list that obviously continues on. Either I do not understand the fundamentals of using this app, the developers do not, or it is buggy. That is why I said 2 stars, in case it is user error. I tried to create an account and it would not let me register, said I have to be over 21. I am over 60 and I put in the appropriate birthdate. And why did I have to put in the same info in several places? Also, the wine descriptions are a little generic, I am labeled as a wine enthusiast. Being that this is somewhat associated and promoted with a popular podcast, I was hoping for more. No help files or ability to put in suggestions.
  • Decent

    Informative for novices like me, but no matter what label I take a pic of, it never pulls the right vintage. Many times I'm left with a generic description of the wine that isn't always 100% accurate.
