We’ve always said that Quini was created to make wine tasting accessible to all. To replace intimidation with confidence. Now we advance this vision by bringing Quini to the world of fine dining. So both server and guest can engage in more informative, yet casual language about wine. Where the consumer is empowered, not intimidated, and servers, new or veterans, can be confident and able to enhance their guest dining experience even more. Read More
It was earlier this year that many celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Tasting in Paris. Remember also that at that time there were only mainframes and mini computers. People were just changing to push button keypads on their phones. The Wine Institute didn’t even report annually on the number of US wineries, but in 1975 they had reported 579. Relatively speaking there were few Americans who drank wine on a regular basis. How many people outside of Napa really cared that they beat better known French wines? Read More
Quini was made by people who love wine. We wanted to create a new, accessible way for people to enjoy wine, learn about tasting, develop their skills and find amazing wines through friends and recommendations.
We also wanted the app to be good. Even revolutionary. That's why Quini was developed with a team of experts in wine tasting, design and interactive architecture, including a wine scientist who helped us design a set of criteria and descriptive terminology that ensure tasting depth and accuracy. This way, the tasting process is accessible to all, but rigorous enough to satisfy wine professionals. And us.
Besides a groundbreaking iPhone and iPad app in English and French, Quini is available as a Web app and now as a Beta Android version, creating a community of wine lovers using the same language to share and learn about wines.
