For those fatigued by the usual "sip & swirl" jargon, Kendall-Jackson showcases a new approach to the shared language of wine — one that considers visuals, occasions and senses to be as important as words. The winery has spent years researching, discussing and tasting to rethink winespeak; from this research comes the all-new K-J Recommends mobile wine app, a free app that pairs wine in an innovative way, through alternative cues, such as color and flavor, while also considering one's mood, interests and social situations. Through this social platform, Kendall-Jackson is bringing wine to a new audience."Wine is a social seal," said Caroline Shaw, Executive Vice President and Chief Communications & Marketing Officer for Kendall-Jackson. "It brings us together and is best enjoyed with those you care about. The K-J Recommends mobile wine app is all about encouraging wine fans to join the conversation, making wine approachable in an easy and fun way – all while learning something new." The first version of K-J Recommends combines three main features:
- Get Suggestions - Kendall-Jackson's team of experts, including the winery's winemaster, executive chef, a Jackson family member, and K-J's wine educator, will help you choose the best wine for any occasion with K-J's recommendation feature. You can also scan your Facebook profile to find the perfect wine that pairs with you, or connect with the K-J Facebook community for real reviews of K-J's wine portfolio.
- Visit K-J - Make your way to the winery! Join the K-J family at the Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate in Santa Rosa, CA or their Healdsburg, CA tasting room, and connect with K-J online through their social channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram.
- Food & Wine Pairings – Pair wine with your senses. Try K-J's revolutionary color pairing approach, which pairs wine based on garden-grown foods instead of the typical meal base: protein.
