Sandy Wasserman CS _@SandyWasserman Good morning from Scottsdale @pamceo How is @wine_ring different from other wine apps? Thanks #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO Dif in 3 ways- (1) no prod matching (2) no quizzes (3) no crowd think. ONLY individual user's pref #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO All three patents granted rooted in individual pref Love, Like, So-So, & Dislike #SommChat

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl .@ssmmw - how will your involvement in @wine_ring be different that @JediWineMaster @mbattenhouse @acloveswine or all the same #SommChat

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl Q. @PamCEO How does @wine_ring make a recommendation? #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO 1st You rate wines- Love, Like, So-So, Dislike, 2nd Profile is developed, 3rd recs based on profile. #SommChat

cathyhuyghe _@cathyhuyghe Good question! Data? Metrics? User history? History of user friends...? @KeeperColl @PamCEO @wine_ring #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO Recs are made by individual's preferences ONLY. Not critics, not quizzes, not friends, not group think..#SommChat

cathyhuyghe _@cathyhuyghe Good to know. How are the preferences established? @PamCEO @KeeperColl @wine_ring #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO Unique pref patterns of individual user is connected 2 wine characteristics. #SommChat

Fabien Lainé _@fabienlaine .@PamCEO so give recs according to drinkers history, but it doesnt tell you when, where, how, why, with what & who they drunk it #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO Not so. U can record everything in the comments section + FYI we make recs based on pref based recs 4 food #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO + location based recs w/ merchant partners. u can go into @jeangeorges 2day to get recs on his list #SommChat

cathyhuyghe _@cathyhuyghe Love that @fabienlaine is asking all the questions that are on my mind too :-) #SommChat

Sassodoro _@Sassodoro @PamCEO Profiles are developed. So @wine_ring isn't (directly) recommending wines similar to wines known to be liked?Can say ? #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO Correct. Model pref patterns, identify which wine characteristics r driving pref in connection w/ others #SommChat

Sassodoro _@Sassodoro @PamCEO Wow! I know are proprietary, but can you say a little about the model? #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso _@demilove @KeeperColl - Have you heard about tasting groups using @wine_ring ? - #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO YES! FastTracks can be used for tasting groups. & You can connect w/ friends on @Wine_Ring for recs #SommChat

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl Q. @PamCEO If a user likes Chards, will @wine_ring just rec other Chards? #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO No way! Oak, age, fruit, acidity and terroir makes dif. Chard is the winemaker's & taster's blank canvas. #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO.@JediWineMaster dislikes Central Coast Chards so no recs for that, but gets recs for White Burgundy #SommChat

BellaGrace Vineyards _@BGVineyards @PamCEO #SommChat - what are your plans of integrating with wineries to provide better wine data to consumers?

cathyhuyghe _@cathyhuyghe Great question! @BGVineyards @PamCEO @WineryPassport @ScottStanchak #SommChat

amy christine mw _@acloveswine @cathyhuyghe @BGVineyards @PamCEO @WineryPassport @ScottStanchak Late to answer, but data to consumers? Don't quite understnd the question?

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO Fastest way =FastTrack (6ish wines), but most times we get there w/ a dozen ratings of any wine. #SommChat

Fabien Lainé _@fabienlaine .@KeeperColl @wine_ring @PamCEO - how many wines labels do you have in your database already ? #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO >1 sec if label in database. And we have as many labels as the TTB (the gov't). #SommChat

Pam Dillon _@PamCEO I meant it takes <1 second to find labels! Correction! #SommChat @KeeperColl

KeeperCollection _@KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat peep - will @wine_ring work on computer as well? #SommChat @PamCEO
