Wineglass app identifies wine menus using only smartphone camera
Selecting wine from a new menu can be a daunting task if you’re not a sommelier such as myself. It usually doesn’t end in disaster, but if you don’t want to ask your server for his or her favorite bottle, you should try WineGlass to determine what’s best for your tastes. All you have to do is snap a photo and the app turns the image into an interactive database of wine reviews using information from CellarTracker. TGIF?
WineGlass started with a conversation between brothers Roddy and Alec Lindsay in 2012. The Brothers Lindsay were staring at a wine list in a restaurant in Moscow, eyes glazed over with anxiety and shame. Like many poor saps whose wine knowledge consisted of a preference for white, or possibly red, the natural instinct was simply to choose the second cheapest.
