It’s harvest time, it's harvest time!
"You know what time it is when it's harvest time!" (Sung to the tune of Flight of the Conchords: Business Time)
As we come into harvest time for the majority of our southern hemisphere customers, we figured we are well overdue for a progress update.
What is Winely? For those who don’t know, let’s break this down. Winely was founded in 2017, with a mission of making wine scientifically better.
We see tracking data as critical to ensure an amazing wine. But we don’t want winemakers to be burdened by this task. We don’t want tracking data to take away from the element of instinct involved in winemaking. We’ve set about developing a product that automates data collection and analysis so winemakers have more time to spend perfecting the wine.
We have had the pleasure of working with some absolutely fantastic winemakers in 2018 and we’re so excited to see the first iteration of our product up and running in VinPro’s tanks in just 2 short weeks!
After extensive conversations with winemakers from NZ and Aus we developed a hardware product to automate measurements of pH and Brix/Baume and temperature in the wine tanks. This is coupled with a software solution, allowing winemakers to check wine attributes in real time, in the office and out of it.
After VinPro, we are looking to fit out more customers! If you’re interested in having your tanks fitted out or for trialing a few tanks, then please reach out. Our calendar is filling up fast.... so the sooner, the better! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest.
This year we’re excited to keep working with our winemakers on the data they need to make winemaking easier. This includes;
- Iterating our hardware to enable more data attributes to be collected.
- Iterating our hardware to allow for data tracking from the tanks to barrels.
- Building out an elegant dashboard to enable winemakers to make the best possible decisions with their data.
- A reconnaissance mission to the States to check out their wine technology and see where we fit into this amazing world of wine technology.
Happy Harvest, winemakers of NZ and Aus! We look forward to meeting more of you this year!
Abbe and Jake, co-founders of Winely
