Two years ago, a young, heavily bearded entrepreneur named Steve Young created a Kickstarter campaign to promote his new invention, SYNEK: a craft beer dispensing system that filled the void in packaging between growlers and bottles. The idea resonated with the public: 2,191 backers pledged $648,535 to help bring the project to life. Encouraged by that success, Young is now developing a new product, called SOMM, for wine lovers. The Kickstarter campaign begins today.
SOMM is described as a "smart" wine dispenser that chills, aerates and learns your palate over time. People who pledge $199 ($100 off the retail price) over the next 33 days will get the product by November. So what exactly is it?
