Whether you fancy yourself a gourmet or a gourmand or just a glutton, these selections are sure to slake your appetite for food and drinks iPhone apps.

AG Wine

A sommelier for your iPhone! The AG Wine iPhone app guides you to wine choices based on your preferences—by style, region, grape, or food pairing. Using an “educational approach,” AG Wine doesn’t offer bottles review but instead teaches the fundamentals required to help you make informed wine choices by including detailed region, appellation and grape variety profiles for Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, Italy, Spain and the USA. New countries and regions are added regularly. It also includes other helpful resources that outline the countries and regions where certain grapes achieve their best results, and where you can find the best values.
