Bringing the Tasting Room to You
Influencers + tinybottles = Brixr.com
The concept of virtual tastings has been on the rise for a few years now. Many of you may have seen how Gary Vaynerchuck sells mystery packs of wine on WineLibrary.com, then airs a video blog tasting on the wines in the mystery pack, so that you get to taste the wines along with Gary.
Now Brixr.com is trying to take it to the next level. They're bringing the tasting room to you, making it easier for you to try more wines, and to taste them along with the experts.
There are lots of people out there that know lots about wine, (the "Influencers"), and maybe you've found a few knuckleheads that share your tastes. But there are so many wines out there to choose from, how on earth will you decide on a bottle? You'd love to try that $30 Pinot Noir that Mr.Know-It-All recommends... but you just don't want to commit your hard-earned cash to chance.
What if you could get a little taste of Mr.Know-It-All's suggestion BEFORE you drop mad cash for a bottle? No, you don't have to travel to the tasting room. No you don't have to buy a ticket for a Grand Tasting at Fort Mason. No, all you need to do is type Brixr.com into your browser's address bar. Once there you'll see that Brixr.com has come up with a way to get the wine from that $30 bottle of wine and put it in a TinyBottle for a fraction of the cost. These test-tube looking deals hold about two ounce pours of each wine. You can buy a tasting pack, a group of four to six TinyBottles, then watch Mr.Know-it-all taste each, streamed live, or on tape! All from the comfort of your own couch! You don't even need wear shoes... or a shirt... or pants!photo credit: brixr.com
