Exploring the wine regions of Australia and planning your next wine tour.
WineHound is a native app for iOS and Android that lets wine lovers explore the 65 wine regions and 2500+ wineries of Australia. With exclusive free content, users can discover detailed information on wines, cellar doors and tasting events. The apps also offer offline maps of wine regions, and the ability to save wineries to a shortlist to plan a wine tour. When you get to the cellar door, you can save the wines you tasted to remember them later, and even purchase through the app.
A new platform to showcase wine content
When the new Apple TV was announced with third party apps enabled, WineHound jumped at the chance to create an Apple TV app. Featuring exclusive video content from wineries, as well as virtual cellar door tours, the app immerses users in a wine region from the comfort of home. WineHound TV also offered content created by WineHound in collaboration with wineries.
A design that has withstood the test of time
I was responsible for the UX, visual design and project management of these apps. Since its inception in 2015, WineHound users are predominantly using the native apps in wine regions on the weekend with an average of 90 daily active users on Saturdays and Sundays. The app was also featured in the Australian App Store and Google Play Store in the Food & Drink category.
“When my wife and I visited the Barossa Valley, we didn’t have a clue where to go and then after many tastings we soon forgot which wines were our favourites. This app definitely solves this problem!”
