There is indeed an app for that!
Why should choosing wine in a restaurant be such a daunting task? Professional wine stewards, or sommeliers, study long and hard, learning how best to match wines with the delicious foods you and your friends enjoy. How can you be expected to know if a 2009 Malbec Gran Reserva from Argentina is going to be any good at all with beef, tuna AND lamb?

WhatWine employs advanced technologies in character recognition (OCR), and the support of Wine Searcher, a leading online wine database, to recognize and analyze the entries on any wine menu. To find out which one will go best with your order, just tap on any food icon.
The best wines for your food selection will appear at the top of the list.
The wine lists are scanned and indexed by our community of users around the world. If nobody has scanned the wine list of the restaurant you are sitting in, all you have to do is point your phone at the list and snap a full page picture. We handle the rest.
Just sit back and enjoy the food and wine.
