Last week we covered food delivery apps and we received plenty of positive feedback because apparently people love food. Being the geniuses we are, we determined that people also love wine and so that is where our focus is for this post. We’re breaking down and dropping knowledge on 8 popular wine apps in Apple’s App Store. Sit back, relax, grab some Brie and drink in the data.
