Our purpose is to help small business communities thrive.

We’re changing the wine industry forever by delivering a service the wineries have wanted for a long time.  Although sharing numbers with your peers and neighbors is a provocative concept, we have received unprecedented industry support and are rapidly becoming the wine industry standard.

We added over 100 wineries to our platform in 2018 and will at least double each year for the next three years.

We are deeply passionate about helping winery communities make more confident and effective decisions driven by data.  We are incredibly ambitious and competitive, yet humble, curious, and accepting.  Whether you build, market, sell or support and manage product, we want you to make your mark with us.
