Welcome to Episode 1789, in which Cynthia Chaplin interviews Amy Gross in this installment of Voices, on the Italian Wine Podcast.

More about today’s guest

Amy Gross is the Founder and CEO of VineSleuth/ Wine4.Me, the US National President of Women For WineSense and the Vice-Chaiman of the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Winery Relations Committee.

Gross formed VineSleuth/ Wine4.Me to give consumers an easy way to shop for wines using flavor as their guide. In 2011, she began working with sensory scientists, winemakers and wine educators to build a uniform method for flavor mapping wines using sensory panels. Then she pulled together a team to build a technology platform to put that data to use. The resulting white-labeled software is used on winery and retailer websites and in mobile applications for events across the US and Europe.

In 2020, she was recognized as one of the top 30 women in AI in Texas and was honored to be named a Rising Star by the Women For WineSense. Her insights and achievements in wine and AI have been covered in the New York Times, Fortune, CNN, and Meininger’s Wine Business International, among others.
