About us

Avinis GmbH was founded in 2000 and sees itself as a mediator between the wine learners/gourmets and the wine itself. is operated by Kurt Gibel, who published his pioneering reference work „Weine degustieren – leicht und spielend“ in 1994. The book, which has been translated into French and Dutch, is currently in its 14th edition and available from Hallwag / GU -Verlag. It was awarded the "Prix du Château de Châtagneréaz" in 2002. Gibel's second work, „Die Weinsteckbriefe,“ came out in 2005.

In 2008, the first smartphone apps were developed under the brand "VinoMobile". The five currently available apps give short and concise information on the most important thing when it comes to wine, in up to seven languages​​. Also in Russian and Chinese. Without frills.

The technical side of things lies in the hands of Bitstem GmbH, a small but fine software and application development company with headquarters in Vienna.
