If you’re both a wine lover and chronically addicted to your smartphone, you should take a look at the new app that has just been released by New Zealand wine brand, Brancott Estate.
Ambitiously titled the World’s Most Curious Bottle, this app is a full-on wine entertainment and education package, which integrates a lot of the latest and greatest digital & experiential technology.
It boasts 14 unique experiences including an augmented reality flight on the back of NZ’s native falcon, a virtual exploration of the Brancott estate, wine-tasting information & food recommendations, an interactive guide to Marlborough’s weather, a musical game wine bottle game, a puzzle, and more.
Best of all – it’s a free download from both the App Store and Andriod Market.
They’ve also gone the whole hog in terms of multi-channel advertising- QR codes are now on the back of Brancott bottles which invite you to download the app once scanned, and they’ve got a promotional tab up and running on their Facebook page.
Whoever is giving them advertising advice is one smart cookie :)
While there are many apps on the market for foodies & barflies, this is by far the most impressive I’ve seen to date. The only downside is that Brancott is an New Zealand label – I would love to see an Australian wine brand step up to the plate and try to produce something better.
Take a look at the Brancott website here. It’s very pretty and floats beautiful words like explore, curiosity, and my personal favourite Chief Winemaker.
