Happy Friday everyone! We have fun post for you today!
Remember that giveaway we mentioned a few weeks ago?! Well today we can give you all the sweet information.
Southern Color was invited to a mix & mingle with the founders of Taste Factor. We were joined by some other great local bloggers: Katherine at Buckhead Betty and Jewel at Eat Drink Shop Luv.
The scoop: Taste Factor is a monthly wine membership, think Birch Box meets Netflix. Each month you receive 3 bottles of wine at the monthly membership price of $60. You then rates those wine based on your taste. Taste Factor has created a special algorithm that matches your tastes & preferences to certain types of wine.
The first month you'll receive a starter kit with a variety of wine. You then rate those wines on a scale of 1 to 4 (4 being the best). Taste Factor plugs your ratings into their algorithm, this is similar to what Netflix uses when they recommend movies for you.
Here's a fun video that explains how it works:
The next month they'll send you 3 more wines that should be closer to your taste. Then you rate those and the cycle continues.
It's a fun way to try new wines that you wouldn't normally consider.
Julia's first wine at the party was a chardonnay. Typically she is not a chardonnay drinker because of the oaky taste - however, she really enjoyed this one. It had been made in a steel barrel, not oak, so the taste was closer to a sauvignon blanc. Julia discovered a new wine!
Get excited! The founders of Taste Factor have been nice enough to giveaway 1 month free to a Southern Color reader! To be entered into this great prize, become a follower. Once we reach 150 followers, we'll pick a winner*.
