Matcha represents the culmination of years of wine expertise and AI technology know-how, brought into existence by a trio of multi-talented people in 2016.
While working as a wine consultant, the industrious Thomas Dayras continuously honed his expertise in the wine business. He has been a practicing sommelier, together with Benoit Richert, since 2013.
The CEO of Matcha, Thomas is primarily in charge of sales, marketing and communication.
A software development engineer by trade, Benoit Richert is also a wine tasting coach and a sommelier consultant. Being a connoisseur of the highest order, he particularly enjoys sharing his thoughts on the storied heritage and rich flavors of wine.
Adventurous Brazilian native Eduardo Queiroz Peres met Benoit Richert at a wine tasting event in 2013, where they quickly struck up a friendship.
Now living in France, Eduardo joined Matcha at its inception as the CTO, becoming in charge of R&D, data science and back-end development.
