The world’s top red wine producers are taking on the red wine industry, launching a new way to buy red wine and wine glasses.
The new technology, Red Dampers, will let consumers buy red and white wines for $1,500 each, with the promise of “a lot of enjoyment and good taste.”
The company, called Red Damps, is one of a handful of wine companies developing a new technology that is being called “red damps” because the wine’s color reflects the amount of red in it.
The company’s founders, Mark Filippi and Justin Bannister, started Red Damping with a $1 million seed round.
They expect that their technology will help to cut red wine costs by 80 percent over the next five years, as consumers begin to demand more “viscosity” in wine and as red wines become less expensive.
“The cost of a standard red wine has fallen by more than 90 percent in the last five years,” said Filippis, who was also a partner at Goldman Sachs.
“But for some people, it’s not that much cheaper.”
A wine-focused wine bar that sells wine and food The Red Dums, which has partnered with wine bars in New York, London, Berlin, Paris, and San Francisco, will offer its technology to wine bars.
The idea behind Red Dams is to make wine more affordable, Filippii said.
Red Dims will work with restaurants and wine bar owners to make the technology work for them.
“If they are in a city where they can afford it, we think it could be the right solution,” he said.
Filippias’ team will also work with other wineries to create their own versions of Red Dads.
The technology, which the company calls “reddamps,” is also designed to make sure wine has a better color and better aroma than white wines, according to the company.
The wines, which will be available in cans, glasses, and on the company’s website, will include red cherries and red wine grapes, according the company website.
Fannies said that Red Dumes is a natural evolution of Reddamps technology that was created with “our own DNA.”
“We want to get people excited about wine, but also make sure that we are putting our money where our mouth is,” Filippines said.
The Reddums will also launch Red Dump, a service that will offer consumers “a better way to enjoy and purchase wine,” according to its website.
The service, which costs $1 per bottle, will allow users to see the cost of wine from the perspective of the consumer.
“We think the consumer can now get the best value for their money when they buy wine with a wine bar,” Fannis said.
Wine-centric restaurants and bar owners will also be able to buy wine for their customers with Red Doms technology, and those same customers can also choose to order wine online or pick it up at a store, the company said.
“When people buy wine online, they don’t know how much it’s going to cost,” Fanni said.
And while Red Dumps technology can help wine bars and restaurants reduce their wine prices, the new technology isn’t a solution for everyone.
“It’s not a silver bullet.
It’s not going to solve all of our problems,” said Bannisters.
The red wine world is currently grappling with rising prices, particularly in the United States.
In the past five years the average cost of red wine across the United State has doubled.
Some experts worry that the high prices are a result of an “epidemic of red” wines, including red wines that aren’t technically red, and other wines that are more expensive to produce, according a report from Wine Spectator.
“Red is not a black art,” said Richard Dufresne, a wine buyer and owner of New York’s Red Devil Wine Shop.
“For the most part, it is just a very difficult wine to make.
I’ve never been in a restaurant where they weren’t going to pay a little bit more for wine.”
