Founded in 2013, Tannico has distinguished itself from the beginning by its desire to renew the concept of wine stores by rewriting the dynamics of buying and selling in the wine sector. Today it operates in as many as 23 countries and can boast the largest and most accurate online assortment of both Italian and foreign wines.

Its catalog, which includes thousands of references including rare wines and collectible bottles, is accessible in multilingual desktop and mobile versions and within the app.

The brand is also active in retail with the flagship store Tannico Wine Bar and covers the educational sphere with the courses and experiences offered by the Tannico Flying School.

True to its motto (“Liberi di osare” or “Free to dare”), Tannico continued on the path of innovation by choosing Heres to implement a Conversational AI solution within its Customer Service.

A versatile chatbot for users in the wine world

Technology, innovation, passion, vision, and courage are the essence of Tannico, which the brand expresses through a multiplicity of services and initiatives aimed at different markets.

The primary objective of the project, therefore, was to develop a chatbot capable of responding to the demands of such a wide audience, which embraces connoisseurs, enthusiasts, and newcomers to the wine world.

In addition, the choice was made to optimize the user experience by integrating Conversational AI into both the site and the Mobile App, customizing flows, micro-copy, and logic orchestrated by the chatbot according to the specificity of the two digital properties.
