Is Snooth a Killer Startup

Posted by Philip James, Apr 16, 2007.

Snooth got nominated as a company to watch on KillerStartups.com late last week. Many thanks to Siri for the inciteful overview of the company:

Our positives: Focussed on a big, growing, complex industry
Our Negatives: Potentially too niche and unanswered questions as to the accuracy and completeness of the service

At this point the niche issue is out of our hands, but we're pretty confident that we can address the two issues that we have control over. Now, we're not there yet, and even when we launch there will be some teething troubles. But, I think people will find it pretty clear what we are building, and recognize how quickly we're getting there.

Anyway, click on the link above, read the full review then vote which ever way you think most likely (hint - think positive!)

our intent is not only to have an accurate and complete service, but also to listen to our community. through the mediums of this blog, a forum and the contact form, we will hope to hear and implement the wishes of our users.

as much as we ourselves can anticipate what the community will want out of snooth, it is exciting to think that we will be encouraged to develop additional features. we hope snooth will become a conversation about how best to recommend wine to a thirsty public!

Snooth is indeed our way of life.

And by the way, Ruinart Blanc de Blanc, Moet Rose, and Laurent Perrier Brut for my New Years!

We're not so much a startup any more though...

Maybe still killer.

I would like to fly to NEW YORK for a tasting this year...! HONESTLY.

By the way, it was a lovely thing to see GREGORY mention MOET&CHANDON...I STARTED WITH M&C VINTAGE 1966 when I was very young!
It was given to me by my darling friend Lady Genie Nuttall...(by the way, we both loved champagne
and married men who were knighted by Queen Elizabeth)
I am divorced (and kept the cellar) !
Her husband sadly passed and left her a cellar. Recently we together tried CAKEBREAD WINERY and rather enjoyed their wines. Her late husband was the one who introduced me fully to the joy of Morey-St-Denis and no regrets !!!

By the way,....DID GREGORY DRINK MOET'S newest NECTAR IMPERIAL ROSE ???
What a delight it is !
It is made of 3 CHAMPAGNE GRAPES........pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay......
has a lovely dancer's finish....ultra light on the feet....so crisp and just heady enough !!!!!
(My reviews carry my poetic stamp by choice...actually...it just happens !!!!)

I guess that it is the CHARDONNAY that gives it the FRESHNESS and the reserve wines ...the head.

'Startup' is a relative term, Philip. You're still feeling young and frisky, aren't you?

Amour, sorry to get personal, but since you brought it up, how hard did your Ex fight for his cellar? ;-) And if you're flying to New York, why not keep going and make a stop in Napa and Sonoma, too? To give you some food for thought, here are a couple of threads to peruse:

Snooth is certainly both killer and a way of life. My wife calls Snooth my "wine porn."
