How Wine Became Modern

5 Dec

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is currently exhibiting a collection of work that explores the development of wine since 1976, when Chateau Montelena won the blind tasting in Paris and put Napa on the map as a top wine producing region.

Our favorite installation was the “Label Wall,” a collection of 200 wine bottles arranged by label personality. In a way, the wall is a real-life representation of Corkbin. In fact, we’ve actually seen a few of the wines from Label Wall in Corkbin.

Other interesting installations include the Terroir room that contain soils from 17 vineyards around the world, “smell wall”, and unique winery architectures. The exhibit runs until April 17, 2011.

Caring means giving Corkbin to someone you love!

18 Nov

It’s that time of the year when we  start making our holiday season shopping list. For the wine lovers in your life, how about giving them a copy of Corkbin?

Our friends at TUAW agree! Earlier this week Corkbin was included on their list of Must-have apps for your iPhone 4 for this holiday season. This is what they have to say about it:

Corkbin ($0.99) – On the other hand, there are some things that you should use specific apps to track, and Corkbin is one of those. It will not only help you track and log the various wines you drink while out and about, but it’ll even let you play sommelier surveyor and see what people in your own local vicinity are drinking lately. A great interface and strong functionality make this app a must for anyone looking to know a little more about good food and better drink. Beer lovers can also check out onTap.

So how about it! Say ho-ho-ho with Corkin (or onTap) this holiday season.

Add ratings in your Corkbin postings

13 Nov

From time to time, Corkbin users have written in requesting star-based rating instead of the simple “Recommended!” stamp in the app today. We’ve listened and will be adding a 5-star rating system in a future release of Corkbin. In the mean time, users can use emoticons to add their own ratings in each Corkbin post as seen in the screenshot to the right.
