How Robots Are Taking Over Vineyards
Winemaking may be one of the modern era’s oldest industries, but today many point to climate change as a crisis that may threaten future viability of the wine industry in some regions. Winemakers and grape growers have embraced new technologies to combat conditions that are becoming ever more unpredictable, reports Melissa Kravitz for Wine Enthusiast.
Robots equipped with artificial intelligence are seen by some as an essential tool to mitigate the effects of drought, fluctuating temperatures, and changes in harvest times. These machines arguably collect and predict data better than any human oenologist, and they may prove to be the wine world’s best weapon against the climate of tomorrow.
