HOW IT WORKS
Our mobile application allows buyers to request wine by the glass, bottle or case, in the timeframe they want to buy.
Sellers, who typically are wineries, restaurants, wine bars, and retailers, listen to requests posted in the marketplace and respond with their oﬀers.
Sellers can also directly post their inventory, to reach listening buyers.
Buyers are notified of offers that match their request, and can choose those that best meet their criteria. Wine Societies consummates the transaction for both parties. Buyers can either procure the wine at the seller's venue, or the seller can ship the wine to the buyer.
Buyers may choose to gift their purchase. They simply email the transaction receipt to the recipient, to claim wine from the seller.
A rating and review option allows buyers to rate the wine, seller, and price paid, enabling the correlation of ratings to price — U.S. Patent 7,881,960
