  • Gotten better over the years, could be improved

    By Nick Summy
    This app has been around forever. If you look at the reviews some of them stretch back 7 years. I've used this off and on during that time, and it's gone from a borderline useless app to one that is pretty useful. I agree that the WS subscription model requires you pay separately for this, print magazines, and online access, but that aside this app is worth a few bucks a month if you buy wine regularly. Many times ratings labels in stores are for different vintages or releases, so it's good to double check. My one suggestion to improve this app would be to filter based on number of cases released. Many of the higher rated wines have very limited releases so it would be nice to sort out the ones you know you won't ever find in the local stores. Also adding the ability to filter multiple years. Currently you can only filter by one year at a time.
  • Excellent content and functionality

    By Dorybeet
    I have been using the newly released app for a week now, and I think it's tremendous. The search feature is so well done, allowing both casual browsing and laser-focused precision. I'm a fan of WS wine critics and scoring as well, so this app is ideal for me.
  • Too expensive

    By Eyuhddyiokvft
    36 bucks a year. Free version useless. Not for me.
  • Worthless

    By Geckobvi
    Pretty much worthless unless you want to spend $2.99 per month for the paid version. Deleting the app now.
  • Broken

    By FF Genius
    Normally this app is fantastic. The latest version is broken. We can no longer search for basic terms like “Syrah”
  • Great app for identifying good wines

    By UNC Prof
    I use this app every time I go wine shopping. It has easily paid for itself in steering me away from poor and often expensive wines and towards less expensive more highly rated ones.
  • Serviceable Wine App

    By shilohmedia
    Ignore all the crybaby people who complain that the app costs money. If you want value and quality, you pay for it. Obviously. You want free, crappy reviews from non-experts, have a good time. You want discussions and ratings from world renowned connoisseurs, pay for the app. On that same note, the free content has many wonderful articles and expert advice. I have removed one star because there is confusion about what content is on what source and there is no way to get an easy answer. I want to be able to have one source, pay one fee and have access to everything.
  • Don't get the magazine

    By New app please"
    Awful customer service. I never asked for the magazine but they continue to send it to my house for free. It's huge and takes up my whole mailbox. Because I live in an expensive community , they want to use the average income as stats to impress their readers . It's junk , I don't want it never asked for and asked them no less than 5 times to remove me from their mailing list
  • Free to download

    By Stream roller
    Just of no use unless you loose your wallet on this. If you are hoping that you can access a world of wine just by downloading, you are mistaken. All you are doing is increasing number of downloads of a useless wine app
  • Free....really?

    By Dtshelt
    Sad that this is "free" when you download but there is absolutely nothing you can do with it without adding the paid subscription. Going with Vivino.
