World's Best Portable Wine Guide Just Got Better - PDA Sommelier Release 2.2 Expands Wine Database in Time for Holiday Shopping Seaso

    Lansdale, PA (ots) - A happy holiday is in store for wine lovers worldwide as PDA Sommelier, the world's most comprehensive PDA-based wine guide, announces the addition of some 20,000 new wines, bringing its total to 53,000.          PDA Sommelier, (www.pdasommelier.com), is a compilation of wine rankings and food/wine pairings distilled from numerous on- and off- line resources. The wine additions constitute a 60 percent increase over the total number of rated wines included in Release 1.0. PDA Sommelier Release 2.2 is compatible with most hand-held devices -- including those running the latest Palm OS and the Pocket PC 2003 operating systems.          "Release 2.2 represents the most comprehensive database of wine ratings in the marketplace today," said Charles Gill, who created PDA Sommelier with PA-based tech firm iConcepts. "With more than 50,000 wines from recent vintages, PDA Sommelier covers virtually any premium wine a consumer would find on a store shelf or restaurant wine list."          A veteran of the wine industry, Gill drew his inspiration for the creation of PDA Sommelier from 25 years of experience in wine production, sales and brand management.          "Over the years it has become nearly impossible to stay abreast of new wines, new producers, and emerging wine regions in the rapidly expanding fine wine market," said Gill. "PDA Sommelier alleviates the intimidation an average consumer may experience when choosing a wine in a restaurant or store and greatly reduces the frequency of bad guesses."          Wine enthusiasts can deploy PDA Sommelier's 'Wine Search' function to obtain wine ratings by country of origin, region, and producer. The 'Vintage Chart' feature rates overall vintage quality for most of the world's prominent wine regions, while the 'Best Producers' and 'Best Values' listings reveal the finest wineries and best deals for specific varieties and appellations. A 'Food /Wine Pairing' feature suggests appropriate wine matches for an array of 130 food types.          PDA Sommelier retails for $29.95 and was a finalist in Pocket PC Magazine's Annual Software Awards in 2002 and 2003. It may be purchased by download at www.pdasommelier.com where it may be sent as a gift with an electronic greeting card. PDA Sommelier may also be purchased at www.pocketgear.com and www.handango.com. Free quarterly data updates are provided for one year after the date of purchase.          Note to Editors/Producers: Charles Gill available for interviews; demos can be arranged.      ots Original Text Service: iConcepts, Inc.
