Online Live Support
We have highlighted that choosing and purchasing wine can be challenging even at offline retail due to personal preferences and the many differences in wine varieties and vintages. So what is exactly the advantage that customers would choose to purchase online instead of personally attend a wine tasting session over at a retail shop?
To answer that question, Mr Tay has assured us that the Ministry of Wine’s key differentiator is the live chat session with experienced e-sommeliers known as Wine Ministers who can explain the finer points and taste profile of the many wines available as well as food and wine pairings. On top of that, the site’s algorithms also provide wine recommendations to shoppers through their historical purchase data as well as an interactive feedback and rating system.
