Our goal is to provide engaging, informative, and accurate global wine information for consumers and businesses alike.
Wine information is poor
Limited information on the products for both consumers and trade
Photography, maps, and regional information is hard to find and inconsistent.
Not based on facts (no one knows how many wineries or vineyards exist)
There are no global standards to describe wine information
Technical information is shared on paper or PDFs
General misinformation about wine whether purposeful or accidental
How much time, energy and money would one spend to input 15,000 wines into a retail environment?
What information is required to educate consumers? Run reports? Make future buying decisions?
Product information changes every year.
Learn to navigate the wine world with confidence.
