How drones are helping the wine industry

How drones are helping the wine industry | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Unmanned aircraft, satellite mapping and ground sensors controlled by tablet computers – not 21st century espionage but 21st century wine making.

 

Read the BBC's article on "precision viticulture" and the technology behind it.

Microsoft Surface #wine tasting demo. What do you think @TomForrest2

Technology and wine can mix?

 

This a great little demo of a wine tasting app for the Microsoft Surface. It's kind of an interactive table.

 

While I can't imagine doing this down my local pub, I can imagine playing with it in the right environment. All it needs is an integrated Enomatic to dole out the tasting samples.

 

I wonder how it responds when somebody comes along to wipe up the spilt glass of wine?

Impatient? Disorganised? Want to aerate a wine in seconds? Nathan Myhrvold thinks he has the answer - whack it in the blender.

 

I'm not convinced by this one, I'm a bit worried about contamination. What about you?

Esk Valley virtual dinner

Esk Valley virtual dinner | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Esk Valley winemaker Gordon Russell is to host a dinner in Cornwall via super-fast broadband from his kitchen in Hawkes Bay, NZ.

 

In what sounds like a good bit of fun, Russel will host the tasting of six Esk Valley wines despite being half a world away. It will be his first virtual visit to the pub, having gone in the flesh several times before.

 

I wonder how the time difference will work? Which wine matches Weetbix for breakfast?

Hong Kong wine tech - SMH

Hong Kong wine tech - SMH | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

It seems that Hong Kong is where the latest wine technology is taking root.

 

Many people joke about wine and the Chinese at their expense. How many times have I heard the Bordeaux & Coca Cola story. Well, it looks to me like there's a lot more going on in Hong Kong than bigotted fools think!

 

Read about the interactive tastng experiences at Amo Eno. I want to hop on a plane now and investigate. Anyone seen anything similar??
