The Somm is a countertop wine dispenser with a clear and present difference -- it harnesses the power of the Internet of Things as well as the latest computing technology to make the simple but exceedingly important task of dispensing and drinking wine a more high-tech affair.

This device works in a conjunction with a cartridge called a Sylo. These cartridges are equipped with special pumps normally used for medical-grade blood extraction. These cartridges help keep the remaining wine in the cartridge fresh. This is useful if you find yourself in a situation where you have a glass of wine one night and then want to continue the good work the next day.

The Somm is also fitted with smart technology that figures out how much wine is inside and adjusts aeration and temperature accordingly.

In addition to all of these high-tech features, this wine dispenser also works in conjunction with a smartphone app, making it a truly technology-embracing product.
