As the son of an immigrant father, Edgar grew up spending his weekends and summers picking grapes in the fields with his dad. It was in those fields where his profound love of wine began to take root, and that love has only grown over the years. 🍇
Edgar & his brother 1988
Edgar considers himself to be somewhat of a “wino" and a big traveler. Well on those travels he discovered that it was extremely difficult to find his favorite wines at the restaurants and bars he visited and thought to himself that there had to be an easier way to find them.
Despite his extensive research, he couldn’t find anything in the marketplace that offered what he and many other winos were looking for. So, after much consideration, he decided to create it. A mobile app that would effectively solve the problems we shared with many other wine lovers like him, and he called it, “Poured.”
The problem that Poured seeks to solve is simple: we want to make finding your favorite wines a smoother and more streamlined experience than it’s ever been.
In simplest terms, Poured is a reverse search engine that allows users to enter any wine they choose and then immediately view all nearby restaurants and bars currently carrying that wine. In addition to real-time geolocation, the app will provide glass and bottle pricing by venue for the searched wine, along with the wine’s description, user reviews, and other pertinent information as well.
