The apps that sell bottles are legion, but this is not the concept of Corentin Chon (muscadet), Antoine Hubert and Thomas Rosalia (Altios). In terms of consumer, Vinifyed seems classic: keyword search or tag scan among 115,000 wine references of 15,000 domains distributed in the United States, data sheets, profiles, agreements, recipes, links to sales sites and shops golocalises …
In the Tasunian market, the largest in the world, the three-thirds rule (producer, distributor, reseller) blocks direct selling; Vinifyed wants to restore the link with the winemakers. With the free Discovery package, they control their data sheets and the criteria of the wines. In Premium ($ 249 / month), they map their points of sale, centralize social networks and communicate with customers and importers. Vinifyed does not intervene on commercial agreements and does not charge any commission.
Corinne Gautier from the Moulin de la Touche (44) chose the free package: "I put three wine lists and photos of the estate, which I begin to translate the story in English. It's fun and easy to use. " For Clment Albert, Domaine du Bourgeais (44), "It's a good tool for importers, who have all the information about wine growers". Thomas Lombard already exports his champagne to ten states and thinks that "To describe a wine, wine growers' comments are more relevant than those of the general public". He supports Corentin Chon from the beginning.
Vinifyed is available on iPhone and will be on Android in 2020. Vinifyed is part of the association "La Vigne numrique" which brings together start-ups specialized in these fields, Nantes, unrelated to your magazine Vine.
