Release of the NY Wine Hopper mobile app has been a struggle due to Microsoft updates that were put in place. The issues caused by those updates have finally been ironed out and the free app is available from Google Play or Apple Store.
If your search for “NY Wine Hopper” is unsuccessful in the app store, it can be installed from the link on the Wine Hopper Mobile Apps web page.
Now for even better news – We have mobile app updates coming for NC Wine Hopper, VA Wine Hopper and NY Wine Hopper. These updates will include additional categories for the listings – Distillery, Meadery and Cidery along with the ability to include businesses that have chosen to offer specific combinations of these.
My favorite example of this is the winery that also offers gin. If you are a North Carolina wine hopper, you may already know the name of the winery. Take a minute or two to think about it.
Did you come up with it yet?
How about now?
Okay, I guess you have had enough time. That would be Cape Fear Winery (and Distillery) which includes Maritime Gin. Honestly, when I think of gin my mind goes to Otis sneaking his bottle of homemade gin into the Mayberry jail (fans of the Andy Griffith Show will recognize this reference). Maritime gin is many steps (and decades) away from this. With a hint of citrus flavor, Maritime gin makes for an enjoyable straight shot or mixed gin drink.
We are getting close to the release of New York Wine Hopper. The update of NC Wine Hopper and VA Wine Hopper is coming soon after that.
The New York database count of wineries, meaderies, distilleries, shops and restaurants is 388. Yes, you have read correctly, the wine hopper mobile apps are changing along with state laws which give more leniency to include distilling spirits as a normal function.
Because of that, we are planning to have the option to include meaderies and distilleries in the selection criteria. Currently, you can choose winery, shop or restaurant to include in the list. Before the end of 2019, we hope to add meadery and distillery to that list along with the ability to combine those selection options.
Are you impatiently awaiting the release of the NY Wine Hopper mobile app? If so, patience is a virtue. With that overused statement behind us, is there anything positive to report?
Yes, fortunately, there is. The database supporting New York Wine Hopper on iOS and Android is growing nicely. There are approximately 100 more database entries to be entered with fewer than half of the regions remaining to be populated. The anticipated total number of wineries, distilleries, meaderies, restaurants and shops is expected to be around 350.
That’s not all of the information we have to share! The expected release timeframe for Android and iOS availability is mid-October. This will give you plenty of time to use the app to plan your end of year wine hopping adventures.
Although the NY Wine Hopper app is due out early 2020, the perfect picture for the app has arrived. See the winery picture attached to this post for a preview of what is coming in just a few months. You heard correctly, since we’re in the middle of August that means 2020 is just over four months away.
