Recommended red wines, with prices and reviews


Here at Cooking With Wine, we’re not only doing recipes – We like to recommend wines. And we do so, with our Vivino companion, to get reasonable prices for great bottles


Getting a great bottle of wine, at a decent price. Isn’t that what we all wish for? Vivino and their wine community have been around for a while but it’s not until recently their website and app have had a breakthrough. With 2 million users their wine database and wine scanning functionality have begun to work almost flawlessly. And it works great for food pairings as well, which is perfect for our white wine recipes and red wine centered dishes.

Private Selection Cabernet Sauvignon



My personal favorite, and is fairly prices given its complex flavor, is the fifth – The Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s description is incredible;

The wine has the sweet black cherry and dark berry fruit character that distinguishes California’s finest Cabernet Sauvignons, and its ripe fruit is supported by velvety tannins and well-integrated oak.


If you’re unsure how the app works; You simply snap a picture of the wine label, and like magic, all information worth noticing pops up on your iPhone or Android phone. Only in rare cases does the wine not recommend the label – And when that happens, they make sure to manually add it to their database within a couple of days. As their community grows, so does the number of wines stored in their database. There are both a free and payed version – But unlike other apps, the free app doesn’t limit the most used functions.

We’ll be back with more wine tips and reviews soon!
