Vinous Acquires Delectable & Banquet Apps

Renowned Wine Critic Antonio Galloni Adds to the Vinous Stable

Delectable gives Vinous unprecedented reach globally, while Banquet is an essential mobile tool for helping consumers find and purchase wines. As always, we remain focused on our mission to deliver a full range of in-depth content from the world’s top wine writers along with leading-edge technology to the wine consumer.
— Antonio Galloni, CEO and Founder at Vinous

Vinous CEO and Founder Antonio Galloni announced today the acquisition of the wine apps Delectable and Banquet. Known as the “Instagram of wine,” Delectable has been downloaded over a million times and has over 120,000 monthly loyal, unique users. Delectable allows users to scan a wine label with their smartphones and immediately pull up reviews and tasting notes from a rich community of fellow wine lovers. Delectable’s sister app, Banquet, makes it easy for users to locate and purchase wines. Collectively, the apps allow consumers to scan a label, post a review and purchase. The Delectable and Banquet engineering team will join Vinous as part of the acquisition, and both apps will continue to operate as they do today.
