Precision viticulture with the VineRobot

The wine grower has to take many decisions concerning the work in the vineyard. All decisions may affect the quality of the wine. So it is important that he makes the right decisions. Soon, the grower can get the help of VineRobot.

This is a little robot that goes around the vineyard unmanned and equipped with the latest sensor technology. The robot measures the content of anthocyanins in grapes and the amount of nitrogen on the leaves. It creates maps of the status of the vineyard. These will tell the grower which part of the winery needs water, mineral supplements, etc.

The VineRobot is a European project that involves several wine universities and wine regions. The robot will be ready to be launched end of the year. Read more

The VineRobot has a privileged life among the vines. You too can enjoy that on one of BKWine’s wine tours!
