Yahoo News June 23, 2010 – The free Nat Decants iPhone and BlackBerry app has dished up more than 7.2 million mouth-watering wine reviews, pairings and recipes since its launch in February.
Nat Decants now bundles a suite of 10 wine apps rolled into one, including a cellar journal, articles, blog posts, glossary, newsletter, pairings, wine reviews, recipes, book excerpt and world winery directory.
“This new app gives wine lovers a complete dinner solution at their fingertips,” says Natalie MacLean, editor of one of the largest wine sites at on the web at NatalieMacLean.com. “Start with a pairing, get a couple of tasty wine recommendations and a recipe, and you’re all set for the evening.” Instead of having to access several apps to put together a dinner plan, you’ve got your answer in a few clicks on the Nat Decants app.
The new mobile app is the fruit of MacLean’s eight years of hedonistic research. As a certified sommelier and winner of the World’s Best Wine Writer at the World Food Media Awards, she has written and vetted all the pairings, wine reviews and information in the app, rather than relying on computer-generated algorithms and crowd-sourced material.
“There are two trends that are exploding in popularity now: interest in food and wine, and the convenience of mobile apps,” says MacLean. “That makes the Nat Decants mobile app a natural fit like steak and shiraz—or champagne and potato chips. As a wine-loving geek, I love finding ways for new technology to help us savor all of life’s pleasures, wherever we are.”
The free Nat Decants app was selected among the top five food and wine apps by the New York Times, Globe & Mail and Computerworld Magazine.
The app can be downloaded from Apple’s iTunes or BlackBerry’s App World. For more information on the new features, please visit: http://www.nataliemaclean.com/mobileapp
