Hi Natalie, May 13, 2011

Let's dream. You walk into the liquor store, whip out your smartphone, point and click at the bar code on a bottle label and voila: the tasting note, score, pairings and recipes for that wine.

Dreams really can come true ... if you download my new iPhone and iPod app. Hey, it's free so I'm not paying for that wine too. Here's what you get:

- Instantly access tasting notes, scores, prices, recipes

- Search 150,000 wines at liquor stores across the country

- Find out how many bottles are in stock of each wine at the store you’re in as well as nearby stores via GPS real-time inventory search

- Track your purchases in your virtual cellar with just a few clicks

- Create a wine journal with your own wine notes and pictures

- Share your wines and pairings on Twitter and Facebook

Take 30 seconds and download it now so you can try it this weekend. Got a Droid? That's next. E-mail me for a sneak peak. The BlackBerry app is here. Think of me as your red-nosed fairy godmother.

Here are some quick tips on pairing wine and food and below, some terrific pairings you can try, which you'll find in the app along with many more ... More »
