Snooth closes initial round of financing

Posted by Philip James, Feb 1, 2007.

NEW YORK, NY - February 1, 2007
Wine recommendation engine raises $300,000.
Snooth announced that it has raised $300,000 from international investors who were attracted to the company’s potential to simplify wine-purchasing decisions for the casual and aspiring wine-drinker.

The seed round of funding will enable Snooth to develop its vertical search engine and wine recommendation technology.

"The interest we received from the investor community is testament to the opportunity," says Snooth founder Philip James, "Wine is an extremely complex product. There are thousands of regions, varietals, techniques, and styles - and a wine that suits one person's tastes is not always right for another. Snooth is addressing this problem by personalizing the wine selection process."
