When I first started shopping for wine, I’ll admit that I made my selections based on the price. As a college student with just a little bit of spending money, I didn’t have much choice but to do that. This did help me eventually find a few brands that I still enjoy this day; I’ll purchase these if I’m hosting a large party to help save some coin. Another influencer is the label. I’m more apt to buy a bottle of vino if there is something I really like about it’s packaging. Admit it – you’ve done this too!
Both of the above mentioned methods can lead to wine-selection failure. So if you’re like me, you tend to stick to what you know and keep choosing the same few brands and varieties over and over again. It’s safe, but with so many thousands of wines out there, I can’t help but feel like I’m missing out on something.
After hearing about the Likelii philosophy when it comes to choosing wine, I had one of those why-didn’t-I-think-of-that moments. It’s an obvious solution. Many of us have become accustomed to movie or music recommendations a la Netflix or Spotify, which is how the Likelii system also works. All you do is enter a few of your favorites and out come recommendations of similar bottles suited to your taste. So instead of basing your choice on a stranger’s ratings, your options are based on what they know you already like. And the more wines you rate, the more well-rounded these recommendations are. Brilliant, right?
