MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 26,, a wine education and social networking website based in Minneapolis and Denver, introduces the “My Wine Lists” app as part of today’s Microsoft® Windows 8 launch.


My Wine Lists allows Windows 8 wine enthusiasts to find wines, create food and wine pairings, access and write interactive wine tasting notes, and share wine lists and recommendations with others. The app incorporates the features of the new Windows operating system, pulling users into a tightly integrated Windows experience. In “snap” mode, the app and website sync for a deeper experience. In addition to the features of the app, offers a robust social platform for enthusiasts and professionals alike to deepen their appreciation and knowledge about every facet of wine, plan wine travels and connect with a growing community.


My Wine Lists will also be featured by several OEM computer manufacturers of Microsoft® Windows 8-compatible computers, tablets and phones. Among them, China-based Lenovo, the largest PC company in China and second-largest PC vendor in the world, is spotlighting WineTable on all its Windows 8 machines worldwide.


WineTable was founded in 2010 by Paul Giese, a professional wine educator, executive sommelier and certified wine instructor. Giese received his certifications from the International Wine Guild of Denver. Giese combines his experience as an educator and his knowledge and training as a sommelier, to make the sometimes-overwhelming world of wine more enjoyable and approachable. Giese will be demonstrating the app and available for comment at the Microsoft® flagship store, located at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., Oct. 25, 26 and 27, 4-5 p.m.
