On the restaurant side, we take a wine list and show our customers the 15 to 45 best values on that wine list. If a customer is dining in a restaurant we have not reviewed, they will be able to use our search engine to find the wine in our database and see the “IDEAL RESTAURANT PRICE” along with a tasting note and prices at retailers and restaurants.
On the retail side, we provide prices from top wine stores in large metropolitan areas, and our customers can purchase bottles of wine from these retailers with a few clicks.
Our application provides answers to these questions that people ask when deciding on what bottle of wine to purchase:
1) What is the mark-up over retail price (2009 Groth Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc | $45 | 2.5x – Mark-up of 2.5x translates into a retail price of $18), and what does it cost in other restaurants?
2) What does it taste like (winemaker’s tasting notes or professional review)?
3) Where can I buy it locally and what does it cost at other retailers?
