Wine Expert kiosk dispenses buying advice

wine expertIf the best advice the salesperson in your neighborhood bottle shop can offer is "white with fish, red with meat," maybe it's time for the store to invest in a Wine Expert. The Wine Expert is a point-of-sale kiosk that can dispense wine advice based on a range of criteria, including  grape variety, name, region, price or suitability with food types. It can also scan a bottle of wine and bring up notes about it. If a customer isn't ready to buy, the info can be forwarded to an email address for at-home review. If only they'd come up with a similar system to help us sort out the bewildering range of single malts, vatted malts, pure malts and blends, we'd be set.
