Although it is true that certain uncertainty is inevitable, and that part of its magic and the secret of good wines comes from there, it is essential to be able to obtain and interpret specific data.
In order to have access to them, Bodegas Cepa 21, the Moro family’s innovation project in Ribera del Duero, has signed a contract with IBM to develop, together with its partners Efor and the European University , a solution based on intelligence artificial to process data with data and IA applications from IBM such as Watson Studio, Cognos Analytics and Machine Learning Watson, all available in the public cloud IBM. The solution will analyze historical data managed by the Regulatory Council of the Ribera del Duero Denomination of Origin and will combine it with historical weather data provided by The Weather Company, an IBM company.
With this solution, the Bodegas Cepa 21 team will obtain the most accurate data to be able to make the most appropriate decisions and thus get the best out of their vineyards. José Moro, president of Bodegas Cepa 21, has commented: “We are always committed to integrating technology , talent and ideas into our value chain, and in a traditional sector such as wine, we know that it becomes even more important for differentiate ourselves ”.
In addition, the also president of Bodegas Emilio Moro and a member of one of the families with a long history in the wine sector in the region, adds: “The decisions that we have made by intuition and a long experience over many years, now we see them supported by data we obtain from projects like this, which allows us to be more precise and much more productive ”.
Javier Valencia, cloud vice president of IBM Spain, Portugal, Greece and Israel has commented that “this is a solution that demonstrates how the public cloud can bring the most innovative technologies to any place allowing wineries of the stature of Cepa 21 to continue progressing in their businesses, minimizing their risks ”.
