Vinometer is a multipurpose, customizable and particularly helpful wine tasting notebook in the form of a smartphone app both for wine connoisseurs and oenophiles (wine lovers). But it is much more than that: it also encourages the sharing of experience and provides a forum for discussion about the description and quality assessment of wines.
Wine connoisseurs and wine associations have developed several methodologies and rating systems to describe wines and assess the quality of wines; namely the 100-point evaluation system recommended by Robert Parker (The Wine Advocate) or the OIV (International Organisation of Vine and Wine), and the terminology for describing wine taught by the WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) in many countries.
None of the wine evaluation systems can satisfy everyone in every situation. Needs related to wine drinking and wine tasting vary widely. Wine writers, sommeliers, wine buyers, students and wine enthusiasts describe and evaluate wines according to various criteria, depending on the given situation, for instance a wine course, wine tasting at a wine festival, wine and food pairing, rating at a wine competition or weekday wine drinking.
Vinometer is specifically designed to help wine experts and wine lovers record wine tasting notes, tailored to their diverse needs.
You can pick one of a wider and wider range of our wine tasting notes templates in our app. Whatever wine tasting methodology you have chosen to apply, you can take your notes to a whole new level. You no longer need to type in your handwritten notes or comb through notebooks and papers in vain. You can search through your notes using complex filters, such as sensory attributes, growing environment, or other characteristics you’ve recorded.
But Vinometer is so much more than a helpful tool for wine tasting: it encourages the sharing of experience and provides a forum for dialogue between wine professionals, as well as between wine drinkers, about wine tasting.
Have you ever felt confused at seeing a score given by a wine enthusiast to a wine? Have you ever had an argument with wine experts about the quality of a wine? Have you ever forgotten what exactly was your criteria in evaluating a wine? If you’re in the wine business or interested in wine tasting, we’re going to help you make your concept a reality and share it with the world by involving you in an intense dialogue on wines and the assessment of wine quality. We have always believed that more transparent and more clearly defined wine classification systems significantly help consumers navigate the world of wine.
Another purpose of Vinometer is to clarify tasting terms and make wine tasting a great experience for everyone, while contributing to strengthen the professional underpinnings of wine evaluation.
