Wine Snob will help you understand Wine and Food pairings, terminology and best of all, allow you to quickly and easily enter in the wines that you drink along with tasting notes, price, vintage…etc. Wine Snob even lets you save a picture of the label with each entry!

We asked expert sommeliers and winemakers to share their wealth of knowledge with our app users. The result is a VASTLY expanded varietal listing (from Aglianico to Zinfandel), a complete revision of useful wine information and an expanded food and wine pairing list that includes an impressive list of cheeses.
