As efficient as a Robot...
Am I a real person?

Beside being the Wine Quality Control Director for the company I work for, I'm also the Wine Market Analyst, meaning that I do all the Market Analysis prior all of the wine purchases.
Comparative Market Analysis (to make sure that we buy at fair prices) between the prices of
- Wine-Searcher (Retail Prices),
- Liv-Ex / Cellar|Watch (Trading Prices - Market Trend),
- Courtiers/Negociants/Brokers/Merchants (Winery Prices + around 15-25% Margin)
- Wine Market Journal (Auctions Prices - Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Acker Merrall & Condit, Hart Davis Hart, etc..)
- Other sources if needed
It is important to do a comparative Market Analysis between the prices of long established reliable websites (like those cited above), prior each purchase, to estimate the market trend and make sure that we buy at fair prices and from reliable sources.
However, as I do these Market Analysis at the rate 3 or 4 Market Analysis per week, each including hundreds of lines/lots/wines (like I just finished one with 250 lines, and I'm just starting another one for a Sotheby's auction tomorrow that include 1530 lines/lots), it happens that some websites are asking me if "I'm a real person"... 😊
And somehow I get quite a satisfaction to realize that I'm apparently as efficient as a Robot looking through all the websites cited above on daily basis to find and compare the prices of hundreds of wines in different vintages and different formats.....
Today again, for the 3rd day in a row, Wine-Searcher asked me once again the question, and I found it quite funny, so I decided to share it with you in a post.
Funny, more especially ironic coming from a software thinking that I'm looking through so much data on daily basis that I could even be a Robot... 😂😂😂 .... and asking me if I'm a "real" peron...
Ironic, isn't it?
Ironic, isn't it?
