 Why Somm is Amazing

Why Pre-order Now?

Hundreds of Evolving Wine Varieties

Our expert wine team hand-selects our wineries to make sure only the highest-quality grapes make it into your glass. We are launching with 30 wines chosen for their exceptional quality and range, then growing multiple brands every week.  Which of your favorite wineries do you want us to work with? Let us know!  

Key Features of Somm

Key Features of the Sylo

Three Bottles (750mL) in One Sylo

Save the impact on the planet and your wallet with our eco-friendly, quality-preserving, economically-shipping packaging innovation.  Sylos are only slightly wider and taller than a standard 750mL glass bottle and fit in standard wine racks.

How Somm Works

Connect with Somm to Discover More

Learn more about how your palate is evolving and order wines right to your door. Somm tells you what wine is inside, teaches you about it, lets you know how much is left, and can even auto-order more wines for you when they are low.

Meet Denise, Community Wine Expert

Denise is a Certified Sommelier and Certified Specialist of Wine. Her purpose is to learn from your ratings and select the absolute best wines for our offering. She will only select less than 5% of the wines she samples.

We're Ready to Manufacture!

The parts are already fabricated and tested.  After the Kickstarter is completed we will go straight into production and spend the entire summer testing with wineries.

Launch by Christmas 2016

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

Risks and challenges

Product Delays - We have relationships already established with manufacturers, distributors, etc. but there is a chance that the production process may take longer than expected, especially if there are large orders.

Local Legal Issues - Every country, state, province, city, etc. has unique laws when it comes to producing, distributing, and consuming alcoholic beverages. Please ensure you understand the laws that apply to your location to ensure SYNEK can provide the most impact.

Process Concerns - There are a million+ unique ways to create, store, and dispense wine. We have tested the major ones, but not all of them. Somm may not perform up to standards under unique situations. We will do our best to work with you to learn how Somm may have under-performed and discern the best way to overcome it. Bottles have had a century to perfect the process and they still give users issues.

Wine Varieties - We will be constantly increasing our assortment by allowing our community to vote on the brands they want released. Although we will guarantee quality, we cannot guarantee that a particular wine will be perfect for your preference. The more wine you try, the better Somm learns your preferences.
