Wine Hopper App Improvements Coming

Do you get the feeling that things are always changing? Hopefully these continual changes are for the better.

Well, the NC Wine Hopper app is growing again with these improvements in the works. Check out the list of items and let us know if these will help you to transition from a wine dabbler into a true wine hopper.

  • Individual ratings and notes for each winery – You will have an option to give your own rating of 1-5 along with notes made to help you recall why you gave the rating. This could grow even more with the ability to share the rating and notes with other users, but that is already being done with the review sites available through the app.
  • Select wineries within a certain distance from your location – You have the ability to display wineries within a region or county. You can also enter a partial name to display matching wineries. This option will allow viewing of all wineries within 10, 25 or 50 miles of your current location.
  • NC wine trivia – The database is being built now with questions including interesting details about NC wineries, tasting tips and wine details. Once there are enough questions, this will be added to the app for your regular education and enjoyment.
  • VA Wine Hopper – Yes, you read this correctly. The beginnings of the Virginia database are in the development phase. Once the database has been populated with the multitude of wineries located within the state of Virginia, a second Wine Hopper app will be released to the public.

If you haven’t tried the app, look up “NC Wine Hopper” in your app store. This is available for Android or iOS, so you can download and enjoy you wine hopping experience.

Feel free to let us know if we are missing wineries, shops or restaurants serving NC wines. We also look forward to hearing from you about any improvements for the NC Wine Hopper app. Email with your suggestions.
