Challenges

Metrics to evaluate the quality of wine

Temperature

Air humidity

Exposure to UV and solar radiation

Soil temperature

Soil moisture and composition

Weather and wind

Case Study

Maintain a constant temperature

The temperature of a wine cellar must be between 10 ° C and 16 ° C. More precisely between 10 ° C and 12 ° C for white wines and between 12 ° C and 16 ° C for red ones. The variations must be almost imperceptible. An increase or a reduction in degrees can cause an increase or a reduction in the volume of the wine, or a second fermentation which increases the pressure inside the bottles.

Humidity monitoring in the environment

The humidity of the wine cellars must be between 70% and 80%.

Too low humidity favors wine evaporation and oxidation. Also, dry the cork stoppers. Excessive humidity, on the other hand, can cause the formation of mold both on the label and in the cork.

Importance of IOT for a proactive approach

There are many opportunities to use automated monitoring tools and sensors to understand the data, the weather, soil moisture, and composition, beyond the initial observations or note-taking. Being able to use sensors, automatically report data collected, and drive decisions based on those findings is incredibly beneficial.
