Wine Keeper

WineKeeper is an application designed to track and manage wines--the ones you're tasting and the ones in your cellar right now. It's designed to be fast, flexible, and easy to use, particularly when you're actually out experiencing wines, at restaurants, winery tasting rooms and more.

Enter in as much or as little information as you want, while you taste. You can include detailed tasting notes and your own personalized score for a wine, or data such as vintage year, wine name, region and appellation, alcohol level, price per bottle, when the wine will be prime to drink, and much more. Or, simply snap a photo of the bottle label and leave the details for later. After all, you're enjoying wine, not taking inventory!

In keeping with the idea of ease of entry, Wine Keeper also allows you to geotag your tasting location with one press of a button, so you can come back later and instantly see right in the included mapping screen where you were when you tasted a particular wine. Also, if you're tasting multiple wines at the same, Wine Keeper will save you the trouble of re-inputing repeating information such as the winery name, tasting location, tasting date, and GPS coordinates, with a one-button repeat key. You can also access a white color card to help judge the tint of your wine.

As you build your library of wine tastings, Wine Keeper helps you track your collection with useful sorting and searching features. You can browse through your tastings by Winery, added date and score, and even better, you can perform free-form searches on any number of criteria, including winery and wine name, vintage year, tasting location, wine region and appellation, and score. Searching is real-time and instantaneous, too.

In addition to tasting wines, Wine Keeper also features fields to help you track and organize your wine cellar. You can easily add and remove wines to your cellar, which is tracked separately from tastings, and as you add bottles or pop corks, one press allows you to modify the state of your current holdings. In addition to number of bottles, wine Keeper also helps you track when and where you purchased your wine, for how much, and what bottle sizes you have in your cellar.

In addition to keeping notes on individual wines, Wine Keeper also features an integrated note-taking tool, so you can keep the rest of your wine information in one place and instantly accessible. If you have a wish list, price list, recommendations for other tastings from friends and colleagues, or anything else, keep them on-hand and with the rest of your wine tasting information with the Notes feature.

Wine Keeper is in active development, with many more features planned for the near future. I'm always happy to chat with other wine enthusiasts on feedback, suggestions, and bug reports/criticisms. If you like the app, let me know! If not, let me know as well and I'll see what I can do make it better.

What's new in version 1.4
Thanks to everyone who wrote in with requests for updates! The most critical is the addition of new vintage years, no longer do you have to select "no vintage" or "unknown" for your 2012 and later wines. New vintages up to 2016 are now supported!

Also, another long overdue addition is support for 4" retina displays (iPhone 5, 5c, 5s). This comes along with basic iOS7 support. It's not perfect, but I wanted to get it out there for everyone with wider screens to start using.

There are also a few minor new features, including a few new search parameters:
-Winery Name
-Wine name
-Tasting Location
-Region
-Vintage Year
-Varietal
-Rating
-@Rating (@8 is all wines rated 80-89, @9 is all 90s)
Our verdict: Good
  • + Wine Keeper is a highly rated app (4.5-star).
