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.



  • Not good for recording favorites

    By VT cuisine
    This app is geared toward selling you wines. It is not good for recording your own history and favorites. It has no way for you to categorize wines you have tasted by type. You can only search them by name. Also I tried scanning several wine labels and only 1 out of 3 were recognized. The rest were not in the app’s database.
  • Photo my wines

    By Jan$$$
    Very awkward to get a photo and upload it. Not directly self explanatory in process. If photo taken from my camera files it truncated the picture so it’s hard to know how to take the picture for what I want to show.
  • Disappointing

    By BrtllyHnst
    This app is pretty disappointing. I had such high hopes, as the star rating was high, and the number of reviewers was high as well. I paid $3 to have adds removed, however every time you enter the app, I am hit with a full page add to sign up and save. Then I paid $5 to be able to take scans, because this is not a basic feature. You either enter an email address for a limited number, or pay for unlimited. Neither is worth it, as the feature doesn’t work properly. It takes a while to load. When it does I’ve experienced 3 issues 1) it can’t find my wine 2) the wine title is populated to the search field, making you think it found the wine, but you get a pop up saying the wine can’t be found 3) the wine is found, however when I try to select nothing happens. I would expect that after paying the amounts I did that I would t have anything to complain about.
  • Nice App

    By Bill zz
    Good app for those wishing to catalog their own wine collection or just all the wines they try for future reference. Offers suggestions for food pairings. Offers bargains on wine purchases. Good all around app for the general wine drinking public.
  • Good concept, poor execution

    By EA0220
    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!

    By Muhokie
    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

    By HabdkabDnsbjx
    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!

    By bamsf
