An App That Bacchus Would Buy
Reading this post does not in any way accredit anyone as an official Sommelier. George Clooney’s Lake Como Villa Residence…rather impressive…so stems the rumor via Adele’s gang.
My most immediate curiosity leans toward the supposed murmurings that recently Francis Ford Coppola, Paul Giamatti and Avery Wang (Shazam inventor) all swung by to not only pay George a boys-will-be-boys visit, but more importantly, they met to discuss the world according to Bacchus.
While the above scenario appears HIGHLY unlikely, what’s not unlikely is that the world’s wine business will go grape upon discovering the latest wino app smartly dubbed Snooth.com. My father – the pontificating, self-proclaimed Sommelier – said it best.
Simply put, it’s “Shazam for Wine” – plus a cool connection to your camera phone.
Download-compatible now (free or for a small fee ) to one’s iProduct lineup:
Much like Shazam helped you figure out that tedious song stuck in your brain’s right hemisphere, this app helps one figure out where to pick up the prized Pinot Noir that your boss prefers come holiday season. So whether you’re on this year’s planning committee for the Catalina Wine Mixer or just hosting the monthly “Napa Night” gathering with your friends, the below “How-To Guide” breaks down a few steps for using Snooth.com effectively.
1). Enjoy a bottle for any number of social reasons (Spring Picnic, Summer Squash Day, etc.)
2). Sneak a snapshot of the label you need because impressing clients takes skill and the enemy might lurk anywhere
3). Navigate the index to see where your selection sits readily available for purchase near your current GPS coordinates
4). Use the handy scroll feature to check options if there’s not a particular label you’re looking to pick up; it’s broken down by type, country, and price
5). Swirl your sampling to not only inspect the wine’s legs, but to also show with a self-convincing grin that if necessary, you could easily appear wiser than an actual Sommelier
Funny enough, I saw a tweet that perfectly summarizes the genius steering Snooth.com exponentially past successful:
Naturally, the leadership behind Snooth.com’s beautiful concept consolidates the two.
And the end result?
An app that our dearest friend Bacchus would absolutely approve – and download himself.
