This newly launched app, available worldwide for both iPhone and Android devices, is like a social media hub for wine novices and enthusiasts alike. Fill your Instagram-esque profile with information regarding your wine know-how and photos of your wine-tasting experiences. Learn about various wines through ratings and reviews and start to learn more about your own preferences. Connect with other nearby wine lovers and organize wine-focused events. Save your favorite wines for easy reference and learn about food and wine pairings. You can even participate in wine-related challenges and take quizzes to test your wine know-how.


Possibly the best part? Your feed on the platform won’t be A.I.- or algorithm-generated, meaning you will see only the content you want to see, from the first time you log in and take the palate quiz to help you start building your favorites lists.

In other words, Winelikes is all things wine in one, singular social media-geared platform, allowing you to connect with others and plan experiences based on what you see and learn within the app.


Winelikes is now available on the Apple App Store and on the Google Play store.
