QelviQ Personal Sommelier, the first smart wine cooler in the world
White wine should never be drunk too cold, and red wine never too warm. QelviQ is your Personal Sommelier to ensure that you will always enjoy your wine at the ideal temperature.
Knowing that bringing a product to market takes a lot of time, Xavier Verhelle from QelviQ approached us several years ago when he was looking for a partner that could provide him with the necessary support to help him achieve his wildest dreams. An oenophile(that’s a wine lover) in heart and soul, it distressed him to see that many good wines were not being enjoyed to their best advantage because they were served at the wrong temperature. This is where smart technology comes in, in the form of a smart wine cooler with access to a cloud-based wine guide containing over 300,000 wines. All a wine afficionado has to do is scan the label on the bottle via a free app, and the wine cooler automatically adjusts the temperature settings to the perfect temperature for that particular bottle of wine.
The wine cooler works via Bluetooth and can connect to your smartphone. The text on the label is read by artificial intelligence, after which a match is sought in a database of 300,000 wines. Do you have a wine that does not appear in the database? Call in the advice of a real-life sommelier, who is available 24/7 to read your forwarded label and inform you of its ideal serving temperature.
