From Social Matchmaking Apps to Alcohol-Ordering Apps

These sites and apps for wine lovers cover every aspect of enjoying and exploring wine -- from having a friend to sip with to curating a collection.

Apps help smartphone owners organize their lives in almost every way: there are calendar apps, reminder apps and to-do list apps. There are apps to help you meet people, see the people you know, show the people you know (or even the ones you don't) what you're doing every day and remember the birthdays of the people who are important to you. It makes sense, then, that apps are now moving into the world of wine. After all, wine is a social activity and also one that requires planning and knowledge.

These sites and apps for wine procurement and consumption can function as a sommelier, a boutique, a cellar catalog and a wine diary at your fingertips.
