About today’s guest:
Amy Gross is the founder and CEO of VineSleuth / Wine4.Me, a system that, by combining sensory data with machine learning, offers recommendations based on the flavor of wine, beer and cider. Her engaging personality and her experiences building VineSleuth have made Amy a sought-after speaker on key issues related to wine, AI and data integrity, personalization, and her entrepreneurial journey. It has hosted nearly 100 virtual tasting events for general customers and boutiques and has participated in events such as the Mobile World Congress, VinExpo in Bordeaux and the National Retail Federation’s Big Show, with an audience of 16,000 spectators.
Amy created VineSleuth after a trip to Napa in 2009, which left her perplexed about her wine choices. She then began to want a system that could provide her with personalized recommendations… and so she got to work. He started studying wine and his business, and then started writing about both, visiting wineries on 4 continents. Bringing together the talents of Cornell University sensory scientists, winemakers, a brewmaster, applied mathematician, wine educators and more, he directed the creation of VineSleuth’s web applications, earning 3 patents. His work with VineSleuth has been noted by the New York Times, Fortune, CNN, and Meininger’s Wine Business International. In 2020, Amy was awarded as one of two Rising Stars in the wine industry by the national organization Women for WineSense.
