Grape District

Wouldn’t it be great if there was some sort of way to educate yourself on your wine preferences, a wine hand-book. This is where Grape District comes in.

Developing a taste for wine is a skill which takes years to master. Detecting different flavour notes and distinguishing between a Cabernet and Merlot is truly a task that needs commitment. Then there’s the casual wine drinkers, who can distinguish red and white only based on visuals. For the rest of us, there’s Grape District. This trendy Dutch shop has an innovative new way to sell wine.

Until now, we’ve been depending on country of origin, year and type to determine what wine to buy. For the majority of us, unfortunately, those pieces of information don’t mean much. Grape District does the work for you, and classifies all of their products by intensity, flavour palette and recommended activity. You can pick from 10 categories from bubbly, to mellow, blush and cellar among others.

So now you know to go for a “Rosy” bottle on your picnic, a “Deep” bottle for your steak, and a “Honey” bottle with your salmon.
