Engaging,
informative,
and accurate
wine information.

Folly Enterprises was created through a business merger between Wine Folly & Global Wine Database.

Our goal is to provide engaging, informative, and accurate global wine information for consumers and businesses alike.


Wine information is poor

Limited

Limited information on the products for both consumers and trade

Digital assets

Photography, maps, and regional information is hard to find and inconsistent.

Regional information

Not based on facts (no one knows how many wineries or vineyards exist)

Global standards

There are no global standards to describe wine information

Sharing

Technical information is shared on paper or PDFs

Misinformation

General misinformation about wine whether purposeful or accidental

Thought experiment

How much time, energy and money would one spend to input 15,000 wines into a retail environment?

What information is required to educate consumers? Run reports? Make future buying decisions?

Product information changes every year.
