Fourteen promising drinks inventions unveiled in 2018

Blind tasting wine app

Launched in June, WineGame is a new app that transforms any collection of wine bottles into a multiple choice blind tasting quiz, inviting players to test their tastebuds while learning about wine in a fun and informal setting.

It was developed as a “late-night lark” between co-founders Rob Wilder and his “partner-in-wine”, José Andrés, who would often challenge each other to name the wine hidden inside a paper bag.

The app works by inviting a host to first input their wines by taking a picture of each label, before concealing the wine labels from guests. All players can login in on their own device using a code generated by the host. The app then generates a multiple choice quiz that challenges players in turn to identify the grape, country, region and vintage/label of a wine, drawing on a database that includes “nearly every bottle of wine in the world”.

The app is free to download from the Apple app store and Google play.
