February 17th – WINEGRID‘s cutting-edge Second Fermentation Monitoring System has been recognized with the prestigious Technical Innovations Contest award, presented on the first day of ENOMAQ 2023, a trade fair in Spain that focus on technology for the winemaking industry. This innovative system includes two devices, namely e-aphrom for the champenoise method, and e-charmat for the charmat method. With the Second Fermentation Monitoring System, the oenologist is now able to maintain a constant pressure throughout the second fermentation process and therefore to get a consistent perlage in the produced wine.
WINEGRID’s ongoing commitment to technological advances and excellence in the winemaking industry has once again been recognised by prominent members of the industry, adding to WINEGRID’s impressive list of awards and being a testament to its continued efforts to keep delivering innovative solutions to the market.
The contest aims to acknowledge the technological advancements made by companies investing in R&D&I, and WINEGRID’s innovative solutions for winemaking have earned them this distinction. With this award, WINEGRID has solidified its position as a key player in the field of winemaking monitoring.
This ceremony took place durIng a gala, in which were present the president of Feria Zaragoza, Manuel Teruel, the president of the Technical Novelties Competition jury, Ernesto Franco, and the director general of Agri-Food Promotion and Innovation of the Aragon Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Carmen Urbano.
