ITALY – Enartis, an Italian multinational operating in the market of enological products and services, has partnered with WINEGRID, a Portuguese engineering company specializing in winemaking monitoring solutions, to distribute WINEGRID innovative solutions worldwide which detect critical production data in real-time during the various stages of winemaking.
The WINEGRID technology that Enartis is now distributing will allow winemakers to make better decisions, enhancing the efficiency of their wineries in keeping with Enartis’ aim to support wineries throughout the world in achieving ever-higher wine quality.
Due to advanced forecasting and analytical capabilities, the company notes that winemakers will be able to quickly take remedial action in situations where the parameters are not optimal.
A proprietary information system on a SaaS (Software as a Service) platform analyzes and interprets the acquired data using cutting-edge algorithms and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology.
“This partnership meets our primary vocation of always being one step ahead in our industry. The interaction with the most advanced forms of technology proposed by WINEGRID, including Artificial Intelligence, allows us to offer, not only solutions and control but the strategic design of wines with a systematic and scientific approach,” says Piermario Ticozzelli, Strategic Business Director of Enartis.
The proposed innovative technology allows wine producers to constantly monitor the winemaking process and perform predictive analysis of their production, minimizing the need for product sampling and analysis during processing.
“For us, Enartis represents access to proximity with the wine production sector in all nations and the perfect integration between two worlds of expertise born separately, but naturally complementary. Together we listen to the ‘voice’ of wine and provide the solutions to its needs,” says Rogério Nogueira, CEO and Co-founder of WINEGRID.
Enartis, along with WINEGRID, projects the industry into the future and introduces the concept of “Smart Enology” to increase competitiveness and efficiency in the winery, while continuously respecting and enhancing the identity of the wine.
Enartis is a member of the Esseco Group, a business organization that has spent nearly a century developing goods that ensure performance and safety in inorganic chemistry and enology.
The company works with more than 10,000 producers in 50 countries to help them improve wine quality by ensuring full compliance with international standards.
It has a range of more than 300 specific products, including tannins, enzymes, fermentation activators, yeasts, bacteria, stabilizers, and clarifiers. It also employs more than 200 people.
Enartis attributes its innovative solutions and safe products to its ongoing commitment to research and development, and certifications obtained over the years, starting with the international food safety system certification FSSC 22000.
On the other hand, WINEGRID is a leading provider of innovative solutions for digitalizing winemaking: from the grape to the bottle.
With cutting-edge accuracy, its proprietary real-time and remote monitoring technology provides a proactive and predictive approach to the winemaking process.
Reputable wine producers from across the world are already utilizing WINEGRID Systems, which are based on cutting-edge sensors, cutting-edge algorithms, and AI. These systems help to increase productivity and efficiency, reduce costs, and improve oenological decision-making.
During the first day of ENOMAQ, WINEGRID won the Technological Innovations challenge for the Second Fermentation Monitoring System, which consists of the solutions e-aphrom for the champenoise technique and e-charmat for the charmat method.
The Technical Innovation competition aims to recognize technologically innovative goods created by businesses that make R&D&I investments.
Enomaq is an event where manufacturers and distributors of equipment for treating wine, processing grapes, and bottling wine come together with Spanish wineries to display the most recent advancements in the industry.
