Wine & Technology
a virtual event
with Rising Star Award Recipient
Monday, February 15th, 2021 | 6:30-7:30 pm EST
Join us from the comfort of your own home for a virtual conversation with Amy Gross, founder and CEO of VineSleuth and recipient of Women For WineSense 2020 Rising Star award.
Amy visited the Finger Lakes for the first time in 2011-- and what resulted was a partnership with Finger Lakes winemakers, winery owners, and sensory scientists at the Cornell Enology Extension Lab that helped build an innovative approach to exploring new wines in tasting rooms, restaurants and online. Since then she has also expanded the technology to beer.
VineSleuth’s applications guide people in finding the right beverages for them, personally, through a simple touch screen application that is based on rock-solid flavor data. Fox Run Vineyards and Lakewood Vineyards both used this technology in their tasting rooms prior to Covid, guiding guests in building custom flights.
You’ll get to access the application at home on your own computer as we taste through three Fox Run wines:
Kaiser Vineyard Chardonnay, Semi-Dry Riesling & Lemberger
We’ll explore each wine’s flavor profile so you can compare it to your own preferences. And, of course, Amy will share stories about building VineSleuth from an idea she had while on vacation just a few years before that first Finger Lakes trip, to where it is going today.
The cost for the three wines at Fox Run is $52 plus tax.

Amy Gross is the Founder and CEO of VineSleuth. VineSleuth builds flavor-based beverage recommendation integrations for digital menus, apps & websites for wineries, breweries, restaurants, and bars. In building VineSleuth, Amy secured partnerships with the sensory science team of Cornell University, leading wine educators, winemakers, an applied mathematician, and a nationally recognized brewmaster, as well as a position for the business in the initial IBM Watson ecosystem. Her work in artificial intelligence at VineSleuth earned her recognition as one of the top 30 women in Artificial Intelligence in Texas.
VineSleuth came about after a vacation to Napa with her husband and 2 other couples in 2009, when she wondered why the 6 of them enjoyed wines differently. Since then she has developed the B to B business of VineSleuth, several consumer wine applications, produced a wine pairing ebook, written a wine blog, and served as an international wine judge. Amy lives in Spring, Texas, a suburb of Houston, with her husband and three children.
