“For most of us, wine remains a big mystery,” David Goldman reports for CNNMoney. “Making a selection at a wine store is a daunting task that usually comes down to just two decisions: red or white and what price you’re willing to pay. Then you just choose the wine with the prettiest label.”
“A new app called Next Glass aims to make buying wine much easier — and a whole lot more scientific,” Goldman reports. “Next Glass works like this: When you first download the app, you are asked to rate a few wines that you like. Then, at a wine store, you scan a wine bottle’s label. You’ll instantly get a score out of 100. The higher the score, the more likely you’ll enjoy that wine.”
“And if wine’s not your thing, don’t fret: Next Glass also rates beer,” Goldman reports. “When you scan a wine or beer, the app will also recommend similar items that you might like. And Next Glass will even tell you how many calories are in a glass of the wine or beer you scan.”
