WineRatings+ by Wine Spectator Reviews

UNC Prof

Great app for identifying good wines  UNC Prof  5 star

I use this app every time I go wine shopping. It has easily paid for itself in steering me away from poor and often expensive wines and towards less expensive more highly rated ones.


Serviceable Wine App  shilohmedia  4 star

Ignore all the crybaby people who complain that the app costs money. If you want value and quality, you pay for it. Obviously. You want free, crappy reviews from non-experts, have a good time. You want discussions and ratings from world renowned connoisseurs, pay for the app. On that same note, the free content has many wonderful articles and expert advice. I have removed one star because there is confusion about what content is on what source and there is no way to get an easy answer. I want to be able to have one source, pay one fee and have access to everything.

New app please

Don't get the magazine  New app please"  1 star

Awful customer service. I never asked for the magazine but they continue to send it to my house for free. It's huge and takes up my whole mailbox. Because I live in an expensive community , they want to use the average income as stats to impress their readers . It's junk , I don't want it never asked for and asked them no less than 5 times to remove me from their mailing list

Stream roller

Free to download  Stream roller  1 star

Just of no use unless you loose your wallet on this. If you are hoping that you can access a world of wine just by downloading, you are mistaken. All you are doing is increasing number of downloads of a useless wine app


Free....really?  Dtshelt  1 star

Sad that this is "free" when you download but there is absolutely nothing you can do with it without adding the paid subscription. Going with Vivino.

James in London

Why call it free when it isn't?  James in London  2 star

Just be up front and say the app is useless unless you buy the $2.99 library. Or a subscription. Deleted and decided to stick with Vivino.


Triple Charges and Type-in search  JRNeb  2 star

WS has separate subscriptions for this app $36, WS online $60, and WS magazine $50. Each has overlapping content but different services. Type-in versus barcode or label-scan search is a major drag.


Skip it  dogfart10  1 star

I'm a subscriber to the print and online Wine Spectator magazine...$75/yr for that privilege. Astounded that my membership isn't enough to get me access to even basic info via the mobile app. Very sad.


I won't pat subscription  Davidpran  1 star

Horrible. I won't pay for a subscription to be able to search. I agreed to have advertisement of wines and related or suggestions, so get paid by the advertisers , not me the end user. Not agreed, so already deleted and happy using another app.


Keeps getting better and better  redwing00  5 star

The updates to this app are a big improvement and there are new wines added regularly. Very useful when I am looking at a wine list in a restaurant.


Meh!  DrMikeDC  2 star

Okay for older wines but because restaurants have recently bought vintages I find it less useful when I really need help


Misleading  hperk21  1 star

They make you pay - not free


Not really free.  chicago312man  1 star

I would have thought this would be free for print subscribers yo magazine.


Basic Flaw  leftymarx  1 star

"Enable this device" button simply doesn't work,, making me wonder what I'm paying $2.99/mo for...


Very nice to learn from  bduluth  5 star

Excellent learning tool that has most of the good wines in a decent bottle shop. It's nice to search and quickly find a wine and a basic taste profile. Well worth the price.


Worth the upgrade  LSU_Will  5 star

I held off for a long time upgrading to all of the reviews. Long story short, it's the best wine app for getting quick info that will help with your buying decisions. For the cost of a bottle per year :). I hate wasting time in the grocery store or wine shop looking up wine info. It can be slow and frustrating. This app makes it fun and quick.


Worthless unless you subscribe for 3.00 a month  SbPonzo  1 star

Which they don't tell you until it's downloaded and the "free content" is nonexistent. mb people would subscribe if they had a trial run, or if it wasn't such a ridiculous price.

Dule mule

Worthless ad for a paid app  Dule mule  1 star

This doesnt do anything other than give a few locations and recommend buy or drink from an entire region. Free app give no specific information and even though you have a magazine subscription, the real app is not free. Don't bother.

Boston tea

Great app, well worth the subscription  Boston tea  5 star

This app is invaluable when shopping or dining out. The search is very intuitive, you can search on any part of any attribute. Love it!! TomD.


Don't waste your time...  Jamm1274  1 star

Pointless app unless you pay a monthly fee.
