Wine education and appreciation for our digital world
Wine can be a mystifying and intimidating topic. Its variety and complexity – the very things that make wine interesting – can make it difficult to understand.
On the other hand, wine should be fun. It should be enjoyable. It should enrich our lives. And learning about wine should be engaging, motivating, and empowering.
We decided to use these truths as our guiding principles to address wine education and appreciation in a new way. To make wine knowledge more accessible to consumers and professionals alike. To create tailored wine experiences to your tastes and interests. To gain insights and enjoy the complexities wine has to offer with a deeper sense of understanding.
