Entrepreneur and technologist with amazing App-fu and a passion for wine. Conceptualized Drync on a “baby moon” in Tuscany while taking pictures and scraping labels to remember wines. Aha moment came - “There must be a better way!” When he got home, he built it (well, Bill built it). Best wine moment was enjoying a 1967 Cos D’Estournel with his father.
He can fly AND code!!! A certified pilot since 1991 Brad takes more than his companies sky high (probably safer than letting him code).

A Frenchman with a love for wine and not CHEESE! Every Sunday you will find him on the golf course trying to putt his way to a good score and if not, either cooking up something good, watching some Formula One races or soccer! Best wine moment was spent enjoying a 1990 Ridge Monte Bello with friends and family.
Can make a mean beef wellington!
Red Sox fan who loves to build things. Sees patterns, and puts the rubber to the road. Best wine moment is that “ah ha” moment everyone has the first time they smell a wine like they’re going to drink it, then swirl it and smell again.

Drync was born in the small Tuscan town of San Casciano dei Bagni, Italy. On vacation with spouses and enjoying wine throughout the region, co-founders Brad Rosen and Jodi Goldstein began using their iPhones to capture labels of favorites. Both tech entrepreneurs, the opportunity to use the connected smartphone to demystify wine and increase buyer confidence was not lost on them.
Brad then invited co-founders Bill Kirtley and Rob Mathews, two of the best engineers Brad knew, along with user experience guru Eric Sagalyn to create the most comprehensive wine database and community in the world.
As a team, Brad, Jodi, Bill, and Rob built Drync organically to become just that - an enormous community of wine enthusiasts leveraging the largest corpus of wine data in the world to track, share, and buy wine they love.
