Luxury wine wall with “robotic arm” launches
WineCab said its new luxury wine wall includes a “seven-axis high-speed industrial robotic arm”.
The technology is able to retrieve a good wine from the collection and deliver the bottle to the drinkers through a glass hatch.
The launch is another example of how fine wine displays have become increasingly popular in homes and restaurants.
Still, with prices starting at $ 179,000, the temperature-controlled WineCab caters a lot to the high end of the market and “serious wine lovers.”
A spokesperson said Decanter.com that orders have already been placed.
“There are several units for private clients in the design process,” she said, adding that the company is also working with two fine dining restaurants in New York City, in particular.
There is a waiting list for new orders, and WineCab was working with a four-month delivery deadline, she said.
Buyers can customize the wine wall design, but each has a “virtual sommelier” system installed that can offer advice on food and wine pairings, as well as personalized recommendations, WineCab said.
The new bottles are “robotically scanned” into Delectable, the cellar management app, the company said.
The system also has facial recognition security, which can “lock certain users’ important bottles,” said WineCab, which was founded by Chairman and CEO Mark Chaney, an entrepreneur and investor who previously founded Calvary. Robotics.
