WSET iPhone app notches up 3,000 downloads

Published:  06 June, 2012

The Wine & Spirit Education Trust Wine Game iPhone app, which launched on May 22 and tests players by placing wines in their respective countries, has passed the 3,000 download mark.

Launched at the London International Wine Fair, the game has received an average rating of four stars (out of five) by users and reviewers on numerous websites, including the iTunes store, according to the WSET.

It comprises six different levels and at each level players are given 10 different wines that they need to place in the correct country, region or sub-region in a specific time frame.

Ian Harris, chief executive of WSET, said: "The WSET Wine Game is extremely addictive as points are accumulated as you play each level - but at the same time it increases your knowledge of wine regions around the world.

"It is suitable for everyone from people with no prior wine knowledge to those who are currently studying or require a refresher. It's fun and informative and that was always our aim.

Harris added: "With the WSET Wine Game we have dipped our toe in the water and there are greater things to come."
