Wineally for sommeliers

Sommelier benefits

New times, new business opportunities for sommeliers and wine consultants

Wineally is a business system for restaurants, wine merchants, wine producers and supermarkets. It is also a web app for consumers.                             

Wineally core values:                                                                                                                                                                                        1. Give consumers the best possible wine & dine experience, wherever and whenever, they want to purchase wine:     We make it easy for consumers to comfortably pick a wine that perfectly match their chosen dishes:   
  • In a restaurant or for takeaway. With or without help from a sommelier or waiter.
  • In or online from wine shops and supermarkets.

 2. Always present every wine in the most favorable way.

  • We have invested more than 21,600 development hours to build our gigantic database, business system and web app for consumers.
  • With the help of some of the world’s best sommeliers we have built an algorithm that always present each wine with the best paired dish available where the guest/customer is.
  • When it comes to food & wine, no algorithm or AI can replace the human taste and mind. If collected data of my, and others like me, dinner habits shows that lasagna was the most frequently eaten dish the last year it does not necessarily mean I feel like lasagna when I visit a sushi restaurant in New York.
  • Therefore Wineally-users can choose what kind of wine they feel like having (price, country, grape, style, etc.) on each occasion.

Database + algorithm + occasional wine lust + available dishes + available wines = Perfectly presented wine. The smartest wine marketing ever. And forever.

3. Increase revenues and cut costs by digitizing sales, purchases and administration for restaurants, wine merchants, supermarkets, and wine producers.

4. Expand the market for wine consultancy services

  • Restaurants subscribing to Wineally can also hire a “flying” sommelier/wine consultant, responsible for the restaurant’s wine/beverage business.
  • With digital access to sales, menu, wine list, wine cellar inventory, users, etc. you can handle 5 – 20 restaurants. Each paying for your various services. You can basically offer all relevant services except serving at tables (in other restaurants than where you work).

The Active Sommelier benefits:

  • If you work as an active sommelier today you can help improve cashflow and bottom-line results for the restaurant by using Wineally for Restaurants.
  • With Wineally you can use waiters as your “extended arm” to improve sales and customer satisfaction.
  • Your knowledge is still valuable. You can naturally change “local wine data” (like drinking-window) or promote specific wines to specific dishes, shown to waiters/consumers as “Sommeliers choice” in Wineally.
  • You always have full control of sales and wine cellar status since the “Dashboard” is updated in real-time.
  • You will save lots of time on normally stressful administration. Time that can be invested in activities that add more value to the restaurant. And you.

The Wine consultant benefits:

  • Working as a Wine consultant, you can get digital access to multiple restaurants being Wineally subscribers. This means you can offer your wine consultant services to as many restaurants as you can handle.
  • Restaurants that have not been able/willing to pay for a full-time sommelier can now afford to do so. And they should since the combination of having a Wineally subscription and an experienced wine consultant taking care of purchases, the wine cellar management and helping waiters to use the Digital Sommelier will improve the bottom-line result of the restaurant.
  • Being a wine consultant for multiple restaurants will improve your purchase power. Buying bigger quantities from a supplier will generally lead to lower purchase prices. This will benefit your restaurant customers as well as the wine merchants supplying the wine. Providing better conditions will strengthen your relationships and increase your “market value” as a wine consultant.
  • Every week there are multiple digital (Teams) Wineally presentations that you are free to attend to. You can also invite friends/customers (restaurants, wine merchants, supermarkets, wine producers, and private individuals) that might be potential Wineally subscribers.
  • Presentations are held in several languages. Register for a presentation here.
