The Concept


Today, wine consumers are overwhelmed with the amount of wine information, even with the help from wine apps.

Past wine purchases and preferences are hard to remember and are often inaccessible.

Wine consumers believe wine storage is costly and complicated, so wine purchasing is constrained or wine is sometimes forgotten in cardboard boxes in the basement.

Wine Somme founders have experienced all these difficulties and have developed a complete solution eliminating these problems – Your wine playlist™ at your fingertips.

  1. Implementing a mobile application to capture/track wine purchases and preferences,
  2. Integrating order management, tracked consumption and re-ordering with preferred, designated retailers, and
  3. Delivering an easy-to-use wine storage solution for mapping and locating wine.

The Solution


Wine Somme is unique in today’s mobile channel wine market. Wine Somme partners with your preferred retailers to provide a wine playlist™ – your wine purchase information delivered to your smartphone. This makes it quick and easy to locate your wine, track preferences and quickly purchase again when needed from your preferred retailers. And your preferred retailers can now more intimately understand your preferences in order to manage inventory and make recommendations about wines. Combine this with residential storage - you can now easily locate your wine so that it is immediately available for anytime enjoyment.

Key functions are:

  • Wine bottle label, QR and bar-code reading
  • Purchase and label information - price, quantity, varietal, winery, source, etc.
  • Consumer input - tasting notes, storage location and preferences, e.g. like/dislike, buy more, gift/wish list, etc.
  • Integration with affiliated wine retailers’ POS systems for customer and integrated inventory
  • Analytics to identify preferences and make order/re-order recommendations

The overall system is simple, "light" and highly reliable providing an available wine "snapshot" and retrieval of the customer's archived wine history.

Wine Storage Systems


Storage keeps your wine always available and accessible. With our wine organizer storage application, your wine is always there.

Wine Somme’s mobile storage app maps to your residential storage system. You can easily locate wine and will know when and what to reorder with your preferred retailer. You will never run out or not have the right pairing/selection. No need for waiting around or incurring the expense of delivery on demand.

Don’t have storage now? You can upgrade to our storage app later, and we can help you find a storage system that matches your wine purchase patterns. Storage lets you purchase in volume, capturing case discounts. You now have a place to put it, and organize it. No longer is there any need to store wine in cardboard boxes and search endlessly for a special bottle.
