At Case Basse, winegrowing is a natural process supported by studies and research which enable the winery to produce a very high-quality natural wine.
The Case Basse winery has an integrated monitoring system which uses advanced technology (IoT and Big Data) to enable it to follow the whole production process, starting with work done on the soil, control of weather conditions and the state of plants and grapes, up to must fermentation and monitoring the wine until it is bottled.
All of this is done thanks to sensors placed between vine rows, in the soil and barrels, which transmit data to the SIS (Soldera Intelligent System), a server that can also be consulted remotely, where it is recorded for the winery’s use, but also available to researchers all over the world.
The aim of the project is to integrate the main principles of natural winegrowing with new technology.
Past, present and future all come together at Case Basse, resulting in the excellence of a unique wine, made without artificially modifying the natural processes of winegrowing.
The faculty of Microbiology at Florence University is one of Soldera’s scientific partners and is in charge of analyses that monitor the condition of grapes as harvest time approaches, as well as the winemaking stages and ageing. The way the wine behaves is followed through every stage right up to bottling.
To continue with, and as a consequence of, their commitment to scientific and technological research, the “Soldera Case Basse® Award for Young Researchers” was set up in 2010.
In line with its production philosophy, Soldera Case Basse® hosts various studies aimed at improving natural winegrowing through studies and the application of avant-garde technology.
The winery is currently conducting the following periodic studies at Case Basse:
Conferences and study days are held at the winery on themes under research inspired by their fundamental guiding principles.
