VinWizard wins US Innovation Award

We would like to extend congratulations to Marlborough company VinWizard.

Last month VinWizard was recognised by industry leaders in the United States of America for innovation at the prestigious Innovation + Quality Napa Valley forum.

The Innovation + Quality event is an annual forum for ultra-premium wineries focused on cutting-edge innovations that advance wine quality. Each year products are hand selected by the Innovation + Quality Advisory Board and Wine Business Monthly team solely on criteria of innovation that lends itself to high-quality, ultra-premium winemaking. This year VinWizard Managing Director David Gill received the Innovation + Quality 2018 award for the company’s Multi-Level-Probe.

VinWizard specialises in temperature control process management and software solutions for the wine industry and was one of the early members of the Marlborough Food and Beverage Initiative, or mFBI.

They currently have Winery control technology installed at 160 wineries worldwide. Last year, VInWizard made its first sale into the Chinese market.
