High-quality grape harvesting and maintenance

Winnica

As one of the greatest expressions of Made in Italy throughout the world, the production of excellent wine requires high technological efficiency levels to safeguard both territory and workers: that's what Winnica was created for.

The product

Winnica is an autonomous vehicle equipped with vision tools and robotic arms that allow it to move autonomously among the vineyard rows, and to perform various fundamental functions, such as the identification of grapes, their collection and the general maintenance of the vineyard itself. Winnica can perform even in impervious terrain and in areas that are topologically difficult to cross.

How does it work?

Thanks to the tools on board, Winnica is able to “recognize” the surrounding environment and carry out all the operations necessary for the maintenance and harvesting of the grapes without any human help: identification and cutting of the bunch, harvesting, product unloading.

Next steps

Winnica has been founded at the end of 2020 with the aim of entering the vineyard maintenance and grape harvesting market as a main player, satisfying the labor demand and replacing the automatic harvesting machinery currently available on the market, which spoil the grapes and thus preclude the possibility of being used for high quality wines.
