64007 Wine Suggestion

Hardys are providing a text service in the UK to suggest types of wine with foods. Apparently only 1 in 10 people in the UK are confident suggesting a wine with their meal.

If you send the name of the meal such as "Red Thai Chicken Curry", hardys text system will automatically reply and suggest a suitable wine, it looks for keywords in your meal and rates them accordingly, for example chicken and chicken curry will have different wines and rates curry more important than chicken.

I've got a few wine books and I know for certain "Donner Kebab" is not in their combination examples, so I tried it as a test and received a suggestion of "Hardys VR Sauvignon Blanc" (and a request to drink responsibly). Quite impressive, although, I'm not intending to eat a kebab tonight with a nice bottle of white!!

You need to send your date of birth after your meal as this is to avoid people under the age of 18 using the service.

The number to text to is 64007.
