Find Out What to Expect from a Bottle of Wine with Drync
Walking through the wine section at a liquor or wine store can be overwhelming. There
are so many varietals, wineries, and regions out there that it’s impossible to know if
you’ll like a wine until you try it. The descriptions on the back of the bottles can give you
an idea of the flavor profile but they’re just a start. All that being said, it would be nice to
know what you’re getting into before you make your choice. The Drync app helps you do
Drync does for wine what Shazam does for music—you can simply scan a wine label
using your phone’s camera and the app will pull up the wine’s information. Drync
features a database of 1.7 million wines and each entry features a wealth of information.
The information about each wine features tasting notes, community ratings, a list of other
wines from the same winery, and some suggestions of other wines Drync users enjoyed.
In addition to being able to scan wine labels, you can also just browse wines using filters
such as region and varietal or search them using the wine’s name.
As you try wines, you can rate them and add notes that the community can read. You can
also add wines you’ve searched to a wishlist. If you’d like to learn more about wine,
there’s a Collections section featuring blog posts and collections curated by the
sommeliers at Drync. While the app features ordering functionality to allow users to
order wines they discover within Drync, this only works for users in the United States.
Whether you’re a casual wine drinker or a connoisseur, you can find a wealth of wine
information within the Drync app.
