Losing Track of Your Wines? Try the Smart Solution: SmartBarrel®


The SmartBarrel has been keeping your wines safe from oxidation, Brettanomyces, and other contamination for years. Our single-use pharma clean liners eliminate washing. The patented diptube eliminates the need for “topping-off”. Wine is protected from oxidation, even at low volumes. Hundreds of SmartBarrel systems are in use worldwide.

“Now SmartBarrel just got smarter!” notes Vijay Singh, inventor of the SmartBarrel System. “Not only keep your wine safe, but know what’s in each container, the grapes used, when it was last racked. Just use your smartphone to scan the QR code on the liner. You can view and edit the data from anywhere you have internet. Your colleagues can update the information in real-time using a phone, tablet, or PC. Imagine – no more out-of-date Post It notes!”

The new SmartBarrel tracking system gives you easy access to all your wine storage information. Best of all the service is free with purchase of SmartBarrel single-use liners.

Here is how the magic works:

1. Store your information in Google sheets: Each batch is assigned a user-generated unique name. Create a Google Sheets spreadsheet. Enter information into the spreadsheet. For example – date made, varietal, status, volume, assay data, tasting notes, aging log, and so on. GOfermentor supplies a template that you can copy or modify for your needs.

2. Link the QR code on the liner to the batch: When you fill a SmartBarrel liner use the SmartBarrel App to link the liner QR code to the batch name. When you empty it, just unlink the QR code.

3. Scan the QR code with your phone: The SmartBarrel app connects you to the linked batch name and opens its Google Sheet for you to view and edit.

This simple and accessable tracking system allows you to bring your entire cellar under control. You can now know exactly what you have, how much of it, where it is, and its entire history. You can view everything on your phone or on your laptop. So can your authorized coworkers.

Simple system working with today’s technology.

Uses your own Google cloud storage for security: GOfermentor provides a Google Sheets template for you to copy to create a Google sheet for each batch. Using your own Google account gives you full control and access to your information. GOfermentor cannot access your data.

QR codes on all liners: All SmartBarrel liners manufactured after June 2023 are already equipped with QR codes. For retrofit, you can purchase QR stickers to place on your older liners.

SmartBarrel App: Download the app from our website (currently only for Android – iOS coming soon). Free of charge.

SmartBarrel is product of GOfermentor.
