We just got word that a friend of ours started a customized wine club service and wine retail website featuring wines from "some of the best producers from around the world."
Here's how it works: Bottlenotes club members receive wines as often as they choose and then rate them on a five-point scale. Their ratings helps Bottlenotes map out their personal tastes using a special vino-algorithm and sends them other wines that they will like.
The more information a member inputs, the better recommendations can be made. It's like having your own personal sommelier along with access to affordable, hard-to-get wine. (Average bottle prices range from $15 to over $75, so there's room for wine lovers on any budget.)
Bottlenotes will officially launch in New York City next Tuesday, January 24, 2006 from 6:30 - 8:30 P.M. with a gala wine and food tasting at Suba (109 Ludlow Street), featuring wine from acclaimed winemakers from around the world.
Join us, we'll be there to check it out.
