Traceability at wine industry through integrated labelling of typicality, health protection effect and organoleptic attributes

Project Details

Description

The wine market has changed dramatically in the last fifty years, moving from small national markets, scarcely spread and
limited to specialists, to the globalized web revolution. Wine industry represents an important part of both agriculture and
food industry in many countries (i.e ES, FR and IT represent alone a total of 32% of world vineyard surface area, being
within top 5 world producers of grapes in 2018). However, wine industry is threatened by counterfeit products and illicit
trades. The overall research and technology development goal of TRACEWINDU is to improve productivity of vineyards by
using novel combination of Plant Protection Products while simultaneously geographic origin analysis is integrated in a multiapproach
strategy to ensure wine traceability/authentication. Such approach will be correlated with the obtained outputs of
sensory analysis to generate a labelling score chart data in form of product passport included in smart tags. The smart tag
are physical labels with unique item-level identifiers in form of QR codes for digital and dynamic information sharing and
provisioning of all relevant product information throughout product’s lifecycle, and transparency of product data facilitating
decentralized blockchain technology. Through implemented smart tags, TRACEWINDU supports tracing bottles back directly
to producer and each time a bottle changes hands, the origin is updated, and ownership is transferred, and those bottles
certified at the time and place of production, by producers will carry even more value in secondary markets. Overall,
TRACEWINDU aims to foster, improve and develop permanent international and inter-sector collaboration between
academic research centers and private sector, enhancing the exchange of knowledge, best practices, know-how,
innovations, experience, mutual cooperation and culture of work at different regions and countries (ES, FR, IT, ME, RS, AR)
through a series of scheduled secondments.
