Almost too many announcements to handle today. Lots of new things happening in the WineToMatch family.
#1. WineToMatch is on Android Market! Today we launch the Android version of our industry-leading iOS app, WineToMatch. You’ll get the same personalized wine pairing recommendations as you’ve come to expect from the website and iPhone app, with a few new features available only to our Android users. In particular, we’ve emphasized the educational component of our service. So if you don’t when to drink that bottle of Pinotage you got for Christmas, you can go straight to our Pinotage screen in the app, and see that it’s at it’s best with grilled meats and a side of mushrooms. See WineToMatch for Android here on AppBrain and on Market.
In honor of the Android launch, we’re discounting both the Android and iPhone app to 99 cents through Saturday at 5pm Pacific. So download today and please spread the word.
#2. As some of you may know, our co-founder, Master Sommelier Jesse Becker has been hard at work the last several months preparing to launch a direct import & retail service. Today, périphériquewine.com is live. Tomorrow morning it will introduce its first hand-selected offer to members of its free mailing list. Sign up today to make sure you don’t many any of the fine, Old World selections at limited-time direct import prices.
#3. The newest website in the WineToMatch family, LegitRecipes.com is entering a public beta today. There’s plenty more to come with this new product, but you can already enjoy this search engine tailored to return only high-quality, chef-tested recipes from the web. No longer will you have to sort through pages of slightly suspect recipe sources in order to find a chef/magazine/blogger you trust. Try searching LegitRecipes today to see what we mean. As mentioned, we’re (perhaps generously) calling this a beta release. Please tolerate some hiccups for a few weeks, but do enjoy the quality of the results today.
#4. The individual wine pages here at WineToMatch.com have been redesigned. Check out Rioja to see the changes. We think the layout is a bit more user-friendly and we’ve added some suggested recipes and favorite pairing partners to get you started on your road to wine pairing nirvana.
It should be an exciting 2011 for WineToMatch, périphériquewine and LegitRecipes. We wish you all a Happy New Year filled with fun, friends and of course great food & wine.
