Canadian Start-up makes big splash with new app for wine enthusiasts, the first in a series of apps targeting the food and beverage industries
CALGARY, Dec. 16, 2013 /CNW/ – Attention all wine enthusiasts and oenophiles! A brand new, exclusive wine tasting app, Just Wine, has hit the Apple App Store. Mobility Quotient, a Calgary based mobile solutions agency, (www.mobilityquotient.com), saw a need in the marketplace for an easy to use yet comprehensive
mobile app for all wine lovers, from beginners to the most experienced
Just Wine features an interactive LEARN section, which shows users how to swirl, sniff and swish their wines,
how to distinguish unique flavours and aromas when tasting wine, and
how to determine the sometimes subtle differences between grape
varietals like Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots.
People can add their favourite and not yet favourite wines to their own
unique collection, adding pictures and tasting notes as they enjoy
their vino from home, wine tastings, or restaurants. Speaking of wine
tastings, the Just Wine EVENTS section has a loaded list of local wine events and educational classes
all in one convenient place. Restaurants will benefit from having
their wine menus added to the Just Wine app, allowing their cellar
selections to be available to diners 24/7.
DISCOVER local vineyards, and featured wines created by Just Wine staff and
regularly updated lists to help choose what wine to pair with your next
meal. Choosing a wine to food pairing can be intimidating, but the
Just Wine “Sommelier Spotlight” will help users, with advice from wine experts, making the wine
experience more approachable and giving consumers more confidence.
Specialty wine stores will be able to showcase their inventory to
customers, creating new business while educating the masses on the joys
“What gets me excited about Just Wine is the ability to enjoy wine at a
level that most people can’t yet,” explains Nikhil (Nick) Sonpal, CEO
of Mobility Quotient. “There’s this notion that you have to spend a lot of money and talk to
an intimidating sommelier to be able to get the best wine for the food
that you’re about to consume. And that’s just not the case. Wine is
no longer for the elite, it is for the masses, and wine can be enjoyed
at any price point.” Nikhil’s passion and excitement for wine is
apparent, and the need for this app came about organically, “as a way
to bring family together and to bridge the gap between what you don’t
know about wine and what you should know about wine. You no longer have
to resort to “googling” for wine information, Just Wine is the only
resource you need to get the most out of your experience.”
Just Wine is now available for download on the Apple app store for 99¢,
worldwide, on iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5S and iPod touch.
