Increasing the profitability of your mid-range wines

The mid-range segment must meet very high requirements in terms of quality, volume and cost.
How is it possible to maintain quality and meet volume requirements while streamlining production costs?
One of the main Chilean players turned to Vivelys to identify improvement levers, and to define and implement a production strategy so that these objectives could be met.

Key points
Sensory definition of the ingredient wines that contribute to the final product profile.
Co-creation of the decision-making rules, technical routes and compliance monitoring elements that are specific to each ingredient wine.
Assistance during the transition from a reactive production method to a pro-active method.
Results
Upgrading of wines from grapes
previously assigned to lower value segments
Streamlining of logistics
with improved harvest distribution and forecasting
Specialisation of production
through fine-tuned, tailored processes

Our solutions

SCALYA

The SCALYA process management solution optimises fermentation and ageing. It offers winemakers the advantage of perfect reproducibility in terms of process and guarantees that production runs smoothly (complete alcoholic fermentation, input of oxygen at the right time, etc.).
Thanks to real-time data collection using sensors selected for their relevance and robustness, the SCALYA software program enables users to intelligently manage each step the winemaking process.

The apparatus inside the tank (the thermoregulation equipment, pumping-over pumps and micro-oxygenation device) receives operating instructions from SCALYA. These programmes are devised by Vivelys experts or created and selected by the winemaker.
SCALYA also enables users to supervise the process, in terms of both production programme and equipment control (error notifications).

KERYAN

  •  Oxygen management solution: automated, secure and optimised oxygen input
  • Automatically adjusts the oxygen input rate, depending on the wine’s ability to absorb it

Sensiel®

The Sensiel® software simplifies and makes wine tasting easier.  You can taste at any time, in the cellar or in a meeting. You be able to view your wines profiles quickly and share them with a click.

Dyostem

Physiological monitoring of grape ripening and predictive determination of the grape profile.

Dyostem® enables growers to sort the grapes into different homogenous categories according to their potential, ripeness and ability to produce a specific wine profile. It offers an exclusive way to measure grape potential in each parcel, given the vintage conditions. It can also be used to define the optimum harvest date depending on the targeted wine profile.

Based on the grape-profile concept, Dyostem® relies on physiological markers of vine behaviour : sugar loading and changes in the colour of the fruit.

Sugar loading is an indicator of how the plant is faring during ripening. It is directly related to its photosynthetic activity, the balance and the physiological condition of the vine. In contrast, the changing colour of the fruit is used for white grape varieties. This is a marker of the microclimate of the fruit, which has a major impact on the aromatic typicality of the final wine.

This specific monitoring of the fruit ripening process provides information on how the vine behaves in its terroir and in response to vintage conditions. It is used to inform decisions on harvest.

Expert panel

Guidance on how to establish an expert sensory panel comprising trained and experienced tasters from inside or outside the company.
This impartial tool enables users to define the organoleptic positioning of their products, and assess their consistency and reproducibility throughout the production process and across their life cycle.

Production strategy

We assist growers in determining their production strategy and implementing it in a sustainable manner . Our methods and tools allow growers to gain a better understanding of technical and economic challenges , and to define the most appropriate production strategies.

The expertise and tools offered by Vivelys help address the issues faced by producers in terms of quality, volume and cost. The formalisation of the knowledge acquired and its integration into vineyard and cellar management tools guarantee that performance can be maintained for future vintages.
