Conceirge Services Available From eSommelier
At CEDIA Expo in Denver last week eSommelier, manufacturer of the world’s first touch screen Wine Management System, announced the immediate, global availability of its eSommelier Concierge Services. Dealers looking to provide wine management products can now contract eSommelier staff and authorized wine consultants to catalog their wine enthusiast clients’ vast collections anywhere in the world.
The task of cataloging a vast wine collection is daunting.
“Trust me, I wish some magical UPC or RFID database of all the wine produced in the world existed,” said Joe Hageman, vice president, sales & marketing for eSommelier. “The fact is, it doesn’t exist, and probably never will. Cataloging one’s wine collection is a manual process, whether you use eSommelier or a handwritten journal. Our Concierge Services relieve our clients of this manual work and put it in the hands of our professional staff and bevy of authorized wine consultants.”
Whether the collection is 500 bottles or a veritable wine library of 30,000 bottles, eSommelier will dispatch its staff to the client’s home(s) and begin the process of cataloging and bar coding every bottle of wine. Every bottle is cataloged by country, region, winery, variety, vintage, bottle size, quantity and location. If the client wishes, eSommelier can completely reorganize the cellar, grouping like wines together and assigning locations using an easy-to-understand method. Off-site, eSommelier can also upload wine label images as well as reviews, tasting notes and drink date recommendations from professional wine critics.
