Kurt Taylor, CEO and founder of Next Glass, revealed that the idea of Next Glass originated from a bad bottle of wine. When he and his father were having dinner, a sommelier who was acquainted with them had suggested them a bottle of wine. It turned out that they did not enjoy that wine at all. As a result, he wanted to find a better way to offer wine recommendations, without making mistakes.




Once you’ve installed the app, you must register a new user which you can also use your Facebook account. Then, you have to set up your “taste profile” by rating wines and beers that you have already tasted using the one to four star scale, so the app can learn more about your preferences and what you like. It is important to be honest with yourselves when you give rating. You should not be influenced by the rating of other people. Besides, you should be consistent, so the algorithm can find out and keep track out the compositions that you like and dislike accurately. The taste profile is very important. You should rate as many bottles as possible in many different types. The more wine and beer you rate, the smarter Next Glass will become and give you more accurate recommendations.
