Albicchiere is an innovative system which enables wine lovers to drink a single glass of wine at the perfect temperature, whenever they want, and without the waste associated with glass bottles.The wine consumption is increasingly moving towards the idea of the single-serve, both at home and away from home. This trend it’s at odds with glass bottles, which once opened cannot preserve the wine for long time. Glass is heavy, fragile, with high carbon footprint and cost for shipping. Wine lovers will sometimes forego opening a bottle for fear of wasting the wine not immediately consumed. Ho.re.ca. operators, instead, are missing out on profit: cannot offer every wines by the glass. Albicchiere is a smart wine platform, composed by smart wine bags, a smart dispenser and a mobile app. Our system provides over 6 months of wine preservation and ensure the wine it’s always at the right serving temperature. The device is battery powered, perfect to bring on the go. We use NFC tags to recognize the wine bags and display information on the dispenser and the app. The app enable you to build and check your private cellar, reorder, and remotely manage the dispenser. Albicchiere leverages wine industry standards for packaging, with a system that enables endless and quick swap of wine containers. Furthermore, we eliminate the use of expensive “consumables” for serving (like noble gas), achieving zero service cost. Finally, our system ensures the perfect serving temperature for any type of wine.
In terms of business model, we focus on building a platform to enable the sale of wine – either from us directly or from the wineries and their distributors. We will gain a commission on sales made by those third parties, while still presenting to the customers our own wine line (such as Nespresso in the coffee sector). Albicchiere is the winner of IoT/WT Innovation World Cup 2018 in HOME & LIFESTYLE category.
