Wine Ring, the leading AI-driven, personalization software for the wine industry, introduces its “Preference Intelligence Engine,” the first technology that learns individual consumer wine preferences and makes recommendations. The software debuted today at the 2019 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show as the technology behind Signature Kitchen Suite’s new True Sommelier™ App, integrating with luxury kitchen appliance brand’s new innovative wine column refrigerator series. Powered by Wine Ring’s patented machine-learning technology, the software develops a comprehensive user preference profile to drive the most accurate recommendations in the wine industry.
Signature Kitchen Suite, the industry’s fast-growing built-in luxury line from global home appliance leader LG Electronics, is the first IoT partner in a series of industry partners using Wine Ring’s preference-learning technology to create truly personalized wine experiences for consumers. When used with Signature Kitchen Suite’s new integrated wine refrigerators, the True Sommelier App helps wine collectors manage their personal collections and get wine recommendations, including food and wine pairings, for individuals and groups based on the wines stored in the user’s cellar – redefining how they think of and use their wine cellar.
