More than 99% of Precision and Accuracy

With more than 20 million measurements made so far, WINEGRID units produced a precision rate of 99.9% and an accuracy rate of 99.8%.

Reduce wine losses

Traditional sampling can cost wineries more than 45 Lts per day in must or wine losses.

Cost reduction up to 80%

Winegrid offers great value, as it can reduce the cost of winemaking monitoring by up to 80% in investment and 59% in recurring costs.

Time-saving

Remote and real-time data save you time and money.

The fermentation process has a decisive impact on the flavor of your wine…

… and the ability to monitor this process gives you a unique advantage.

Master the wine maturation like never before

It is essential to preserve the wine against oxidation and contaminating microorganisms (eg acetobacteria and / or Brettanomyces sp.). Thus, filling is an essential procedure to protect the wine from oxidation and to maintain the desired SO2 level inside the barrel.

The winery in the palm of your hand.
Simple. Easy. Anytime. Anywhere.

User-friendly and remote access to all the sensoring units in your winery on a computer, tablet or smartphone.

AI – Artificial Intelligence

The Platform uses Artificial Intelligence Engine to show smart notifications of events yet to happen, proactively, helping the winemaker prevent issues with the production.

 

WINEGRID solution

Multiparameter monitoring

Through WINEGRID’s dashboard, the winemaker can access to different and important parameters in real-time.

The entire winery in one place

With WINEGRID’s Dashboard you can have an overview of your winery status and still have detailed information of all monitored vats, barrels and other units. It is a online based platform where the winemaker has access to profile analysis, alarms, task lists, traceability, smart alerts and much more.

 

custom_alerts

Customizable alerts and notifications

Customize your own alerts taking into account your specific needs for the winemaking process. For example: the Dashboard can alert you when a specific temperature, liquid level or fermentation value is reached.

“In order to achieve great wines, it is crucial to perfectly monitor the entire winemaking process in order to intervene in the precise moment. WINEGRID is a formidable tool for this, thus helping the winemaker’s decision making and contributing to the necessary precision to high quality standards.”

“The hardware is one of the bases of the WINEGRID system. It allows winemakers to have an “eye inside the wine” through the measurement of critical parameters for quality control assessment. But they are not simple meters, they are SMART, due to innovative technologies and unique methodologies, as auto-compensation routines, remote calibration procedures and advanced algorithms. The hardware, software, computational platform, and visualization interface… everything was thought carefully to help winemakers to extract the full potential of their grapes.”

“Previously, we used to collect a sample manually and then take it to a laboratory to be analysed by laboratory equipment. This new WINEGRID technology allows us to do the analysis on the spot and do it repeatedly as often as they are necessary. This offers much greater reliability on the analysis and also the possibility to control in real time what is happening inside a tank with fermenting must.” in SIC Notícias

“Thanks to WINEGRID, we were able to monitor the evolution in the density of our wines online and in real time during pilot fermentation tests on the 2020 vintage, which contributed key information to the winemaking decision process. These achievements played a significant role in the development and implementation of an IoT infrastructure and a platform to manage winemaking processes in our wine cellars.”

WINEGRID – a unique project for the art of the winemaking

In 2014, after 14 years of applied scientific research in the topic of optical sensors at Telecommunications Institute of University of Aveiro, Rogério Nogueira and Lúcia Bilro founded WATGRID. The main objective was to bring high quality, accurate and reliable liquid technology to the market, enabling the digitization of processes in any liquid related industry. A few months after the company’s foundation, a new product line was created to fill a gap identified: the precise, accurate, remote and real-time monitoring of the winemaking process. Since then, through WINEGRID brand, the company has been delivering its proprietary, unique and cutting-edge technology, along with top notch customer support, to wine producers all over the world.

The innovative character of the company is based on its extraordinary human capital with more than 15 skilled collaborators in the areas of Oenology, Electrical Engineering, Physical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Data Science, Chemistry, and more. This team, with some members accumulating more than 20 years of experience in sensors design, place WINEGRID in a unique position to be a reliable strategic innovation partner for winemakers.

More than 150 million wine bottles were already produced with the precious help of WINEGRID’s solutions, and the increasing adoption of this technology by the most important wine producers is a validation of its capabilities and obvious benefits.
