Amanda Gobba Needs improvement 1) Incorrect data – I have submitted incorrect data before but Vivino never got back to me on it. 2) when the app can’t find your wine, apparently they have expert team to help manual search for your wine. I have used that functionality before but with no feedback from Vivino Ozan Makinaci Fantastic way to find great wine! Jason Hindson Excellent tool for tracking and discovering new wines. J Scott It’s okay. Scanner seems to be reliable. Some wine data is incorrect, probably for lesser reviewed bottles. I had a Spanish Tempranillo and found an entry for it, but it listed an incorrect winery and location of origin (Chile!?), even with photos of labels declaring “product of Spain” right there in the entry. The other users’ notes are helpful when I’m trying to decide whether or not to try a new wine. And app staff gets back to you pretty quickly when the wine is not in the system — what a cool service! I also like being able to see a wine’s avg price, so I know if I’m paying for the wine or the store in currently in. Rik G 1 star until it works on the Gear again. After i will give it 5 stars again. I never use the phone app, I used the gear 2 version when it worked. * i already contacted you via email and you dont care about the gear app. You said you will never bring it back so my review will stay at 1 star. You got Android wear support why not gear support??

Slow delivery. This is sometimes related to the phantom inventory issue because stores might be waiting to see if they can actually get a wine from the distributor, a warehouse, another store location or Mars. But the bottom line is that, too often, it takes a week or more for a wine to leave the store after it’s ordered. Most wine bought in America is purchased for immediate consumption; even getting people to take the leap to order online and wait a day or two is a stretch and if it’s going to take even longer — a week or more — forget it. That will leave online shopping only to wine geeks and serious collectors, and there aren’t enough of them to support a whole online industry. Much of the attraction of the Web, after all, is its immediacy.

Real reviews, from you. We like real people giving real reviews. We want your opinion because you’re on the hook for what you sell, just as we prefer to see handwritten signs in a wine shop instead of numbers and preprinted shelf-talkers from the distributor. We want to know what you think. If you are using a winery’s description of its wine, say so. Too many wine Web sites pretend that this self-promotional chest-beating is their own opinion, which is lazy and misleading.

Additional Resources:Here are four wine retailers that do online right, from robust sites that are stylish and clean to information, education, communication with customers and delivery. Some other sites to look at are chambersstwines.com, sherry-lehmann.com, wallywine.com and zachys.com. We like the energy at haskells.com and surdyks.com, and there’s only one Gary Vaynerchuk at winelibrary.com. Go to bottlerocketwine.com and we dare you not to smile at the home page — and then explore. Laws differ on delivery, but these sites are fun to visit anyway.klwines.com The Web site of California-based K&L Wine Merchants.winemonger.com A California-based Web-only store.astorwines.com The Web site of New York-based Astor Wines & Spirits.wine.com The granddaddy of Internet wine sites, based in San Francisco.

Finally, we would urge even smaller stores that can’t deliver — either because of local laws or because they don’t have the resources — to create a vibrant, updated Web site. It’s interesting that one of the giants of online wine retailing, K&L Wine Merchants in California, says a large part of its online business is “will-call” — people who order online and then pick it up. These days, people do an awful lot of thinking, fantasizing and buying of wine during work hours. You want to make sure the site they’re looking at is yours.

Tedious “drill-down” menus. It appears to us that many wine stores now are buying off-the-rack Web sites designed by people who have never shopped at a wine store. Instead of giving us a feeling that we are browsing through a store, we have more of a sense that we’ve dialed into one of those endless voice mail prompts on the phone. “If you want red wine, press 1. If you want 2005 red wine, press 2.” This is not fun. Other search screens are simply antiseptic. When we’re searching, we want to get to the “virtual shelf” as soon as possible.

Too many emails. A few years ago, some wine stores realized that if they sent customers an email blast saying something like “99-point Parker wine just arrived!” they could sell a lot of wine really fast. Now, some stores send us several emails every day — with an ever-increasing number of exclamation points!!! — cluttering our inboxes and making us agitated.

Eleanor, Napa County / Sonoma County (California) Red Wine 2013 ($65): In an era where blended red wines are all the rage, the Francis Ford Coppola winery gives us Eleanor, a blend that utilizes the money grape from France’s Rhone Valley (Syrah) and the money grape from Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon). Eleanor also is a blend from two counties, Napa and Sonoma. The result is a scintillating red blend that is sophisticated, firmly structured, very dry, and oh so complex, showing nuances of red currant, blackberry, cassis and a hint of graphite. Adding to the intrigue and complexity, there is a splash of Petite Sirah in the blend, just for fun. A stunning wine and a Platinum award-winner at the 2017 Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition. 97 Robert Whitley May 30, 2017

Sodaro Estate Winery, a relatively new player on the wine competition circuit, shared the honor (with Coppola’s Eleanor) for second-highest scoring wine of the Critics Challenge. Sodaro’s 2010 Estate Blend ($100) for its vineyard in the Coombsville sub-appellation of the Napa Valley rang up a score of 97 points. Sodaro also had gold medals for two different Cabernet Sauvignons.

You should start to see improvements in this area moving forward. Cheers!

Web sites from another century. Some really fine stores out there haven’t spruced up their sites since dirt was invented. For instance, popswine.com and specsonline.com have fine selections of wine, but, heavens, those sites are a fright. We figure brownderby.com is supposed to look olde-fashioned, but it just looks olde, crammed with words but not enough pictures and graphics; it’s a good example of a site that actually has a great deal of thoughtful information but doesn’t feel comfortable, and much of wine shopping is about feel. If a Web site looks dusty, shoppers might worry that the store is, too.
