Amy Gross has been a friend of the WBC Scholarship for 3 years, and this year – she’s pulling double duty with Wine4.Me, as both an event sponsor and a Scholarship donor! Amy has been a driving force in the challenge grant program we have – called #MakeThemPay. We salute you for your enthusiasm and support of bloggers and wine!
Wine4.Me is a new app that allows wine drinkers to find wines they like easily, by selecting characteristics of your favorite wines and creating your personal taste profile. From that profile, you will get a list of other wines that you are likely to enjoy. Pretty cool right? Co-Founder and CSO Michael Tompkins, our head science guru, heads this part of Wine4.Me and he’s the one who developed the algorithm that makes Wine4.Me possible. Our team worked with sensory scientists, winemakers, and winery owners to develop our patent-pending system of evaluation. Then, we recruited some of the best wine evaluates in the country to evaluate the wines in our database. We called on more winemakers, wine educators, wine writers, sommeliers and more to evaluate the wines, and then we tested them.
The best part about Wine4.Me is that selections featured are widely available nationally, so you know you will be ablet to find something you like based on the recommendations. While there are many wine recommendation apps out there, this is a great feature of Wine4.Me.
Amy, the co-founder and CEO of Wine4.Me, is also the brain behind Vine Sleuth Uncorked, a popular wine blog that covers everything from local wine events, to tasting notes, and travel experiences.
Thank you Amy & team for your support, and be sure to check out Wine4.Me as well as Amy on Twitter and Facebook!
