Wine lovers want great quality, but they also want value. To meet that need, Wine Spectator has launched its latest tool: Xvalues, a free, convenient wine app highlighting “extreme values,” now available for download.

“Our goal is to make Xvalues the go-to app for wine consumers of varying ages and levels of wine expertise,” said Jessica Shanken, vice president of business development at M. Shanken Communications, which publishes Wine Spectator. “Through Xvalues, we’re excited to educate and enlighten new generations of wine lovers and help them impress their dates, friends and family. The app is easy to use for anyone and everyone.”

Xvalues features a regularly updated library of Wine Spectator’s latest reviews of highly rated, widely available wines, and highlights five categories: top values ($12 or less); reds ($20 or less); whites ($20 or less); sparklers ($40 or less); and picks for upcoming seasons or holidays. It also includes helpful tools such as images of wine labels, sortable categories to simplify the library, and a personalized favorites list.

Xvalues joins the popular WineRatings+ in Wine Spectator’s family of mobile apps. Available for iPhone and iPad, Xvalues is free to download and use and offers quick access to hundreds of wine reviews. Look for it in the App Store.
