Bodegas Emilio Moro in Spain highlighted the use of new technologies in wine production, including the application of Blockchain to certify the wine’s designation of origin. This was reported from the site Vinetur, on July 20.
According to the article of Vinetur, the CEO José Moro, has been able to trace with success a path in which „innovation and tradition meet“.

„Bodegas Emilio Moro are pioneers in Spain, and possibly in a large part of the world, in the application of a series of technologies to the vineyard in order to obtain not only higher quality grapes and end products, but also to speed up and automate processes significantly“, they stated in the publication.
„Since 2017, the entrepreneur has been very focused on giving a boost to what he calls the ‚winery of the future‘ through the use of combined technologies such as IoT (Internet of Things), artificial intelligence, biotechnology, robotics or Big Data, allied with important technological companies“, they added later.

Blockchain and wine D.O. certification
According to Vinetur, the Intra-Enterprise Program carried out by the Wineries has promoted agreements with companies such as the startup Cubic Fort, which uses the Internet of Things to obtain data, robotics to get it from each plot and blockchain to certify the Designation of Origin (DO).
„A company such as Bodegas Emilio Moro must often provide a third party with all the information about the vineyard plot where the grapes come from, as well as the data regarding its route and circumstances, in order to prove that it complies with the control and product certification requirements required to obtain the DO seal. With this project, this process is much faster, decentralised, without an intermediary and with the possibility of being easily consulted by different agents“, they explained in the publication.

Joseph More referred to these issues and said:
„For years, at Emilio Moro we have been committed to innovation in order to have a precise and truthful knowledge of what is happening in the vineyard, so that we can control the quality of the grapes to the maximum and get the best out of them. Thanks to technology, the processes are more delicate, more subtle, so that the grape and everything that goes with it is transferred more faithfully to the bottle. The market demands wines which are pleasant in the mouth but which have personality and aromatic diversity, and this is achieved through a process which is increasingly respectful of the grape and which favours the appearance of these nuances in the bottle“.
Later, he also pointed out:
„With technology we do not intend to replace the hand of the winemaker, but to give him more tools to produce different types of wine for different audiences in a reliable and effective way. In wine there is and always will be a creative and emotional part that depends on people. The day that this is not the case, we will dedicate ourselves to something else“.
