Sonoma County, CADec. 14, 2023 – Lumo, a Smart Agtech company that supports growers and tackles water challenges head-on, is proud to announce a trial of its state-of-the-art irrigation technology with Treasury Americas, a division of the global premium and luxury wine company, Treasury Wine Estates (TWE), in Napa. 

Lumo aims to help growers revolutionize the way they manage water in their vineyards, empowering them to automate and closely monitor irrigation activities. Currently, 24 of Lumo’s smart irrigation valves are being utilized by TWE, allowing the company to efficiently manage irrigation on 90 acres of Napa vineyard land and setting an industry example for sustainable viticulture practices. The trial with TWE should provide concrete evidence of how Lumo’s advanced water technology can help to improve operational efficiencies while aiding in substantial water conservation.

“Efficient irrigation is paramount in bridging the gap between water usage and the quality of fruit,” said Devon Wright, Lumo CEO and Founder. “We are excited that Lumo’s technology is playing an instrumental role in achieving TWE’s ambitious sustainability goals.”

“This pilot project is an integral part of Treasury Wine Estate’s broader commitment to sustainability, with goals set to achieve 100% renewable electricity usage by the end of 2024 and attain net-zero emissions for Scopes 1 and 2 by 2030. The collaboration with Lumo signifies a crucial step in our journey towards preserving vital resources for our industry and community,” remarked Will Drayton, Director of Sustainability and Science at Treasury Americas.

As part of Lumo’s dedication to promoting sustainable practices in the viticulture industry, Lumo is pleased to announce the opening of its 2024 pre-order program for growers in Napa and Sonoma. This program reserves new inventory for those who join and offers a 25% discount for a full vineyard deployment of Lumo, in addition to priority installation dates. Given the high demand for Lumo’s technology in 2023, this program presents growers with an opportunity to secure their irrigation system upgrade.
