How does it work?


Collect and process data

Each wine has several characteristics that are processed and stored in a GraphDB.


Calculate similarities

Wines are connected based on similarities such as grapes, structure and food pairing.


Search wines on the graph

Wines can now be quickly clustered and searched based on similarities.

Other uses

The wine recommendation engine is only a demo, here are a few examples of how else it can be used.

Product sales

Add upselling recommendations based on sales data. Increase sales by adding a real-time recommendation engine based on user cart items.

User behaviour

Show the most interesting content to your users based on what they see, play, like or read. Understand their behaviour and suggest things that they would like.

Travel tips

Provide real-time recommendations based on the users' travels and interests. Increase the number of customers that endorse your services.

Product characteristics

Recommend what users would like based on similar products that they already know about. Based on what users prefer, products with similar characteristics will be suggested.

From when we receive your data we would build a working demo in 1 week and a production ready service in 2 weeks.

Would you build it with your proprietary engine?

No, you won't pay any monthly fee for a proprietary product or service. We will build your recommendation engine with open source technologies.
