As the Official App Partner of this year’s FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen, Drync helps attendees remember every sip!
With over 300 wines at the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen, attendees are bound to discover many old and new favorites, and to remember your delicious wine finds all one needs is their smartphone and the Drync app.
FOOD & WINE has teamed up with Drync to take away the headache of trying to remember all the fantastic wines folks taste over the weekend at the Classic. Attendees can just scan a wine label with the Drync app and, in seconds, it will save information about the wine to their phone, allow them to add their personal ratings and tasting notes, and let them buy the wine directly from the app for delivery.
With an image database of over 3 million labels, Drync’s instant image recognition works on nearly all wine bottles, as well as wine labels from print advertisements and digital screens. Can’t reach the bottle? The app also offers text search.
Drync will be offering free shipping to all guests of the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen during the month of June with the promo code FWCLASSIC14. In addition, seminar attendees will receive $20 VIP gift certificates to Drync for their first order over the weekend.
Drync will also be hosting a wine scavenger hunt for guests to taste, scan and share wines on their social feeds to #FWCLASSIC. The first 500 participants will receive “Aspen Drync’n” t-shirts and three participants will be chosen at random to win a $100 gift certificate to Drync. Participants can also attempt to Drync their way to the Grand Cochon – the first to show Drync that they have scanned, rated and shared all of the wines in the scavenger hunt will receive a pair of tickets to the Sunday night celebration. Check out the “Drync Your Way to the Grand Cochon” collection in Drync app for iPhone or Android or our Grand Cochon blog post for how to play.
Whether in Aspen or not, all Drync users can get a taste of the FOOD & WINE Classic, by browsing the FOOD & WINE Classic Collection, an in-app sampling of select wines from the Grand Tasting. The Drync app will also feature collections from some of the top seminars at the classic: A tour of Portuguese wines curated by FOOD & WINE Executive Editor Ray Isle, an array of Spanish stunners, and all of the Classic’s sparkling wines from Cava to Champagne.
