Pinot Noir is the holy grail of the wine world. Coveted for its rich flavor, complex aroma and velvety mouthfeel, this grape variety makes for one of the most popular (and notoriously difficult to produce) wines. To keep up with the demand of wine shipping, the installation of a SURVIVOR OTR truck scale and 720i weighing terminal to efficiently manage shipments is essential. The demand for high-quality Pinot Noir can be traced back to the first century, when Ancient Romans began making the unique wine. News of this innovation traveled through the grapevine to gradually gain worldwide recognition. Bulk-weighing incoming shipments of wine and fruit on a SURVIVOR OTR truck scale and exiting the scale after delivering a shipment of wine can help keep shipments on track. Challenges seem to present themselves at each stage of the Pinot process. The grapes are not only difficult to grow, but they also bruise easily and must be skillfully picked, handled and transported. Then, the fruit ferments so furiously that the process can accelerate out of control and erupt like a delicious volcano, ruining an entire batch. Even after it’s bottled, problems persist: The wine can lose its color, aroma and acid balance. Pinot Noir may be the holy grail of wine, but it can also be a problem child. This type of truck scale provides immediate savings, but it is also installed with future development in mind. Beneath the scale lies an empty cavern which will can be filled with additional equipment. A dolly to allow for direct dumping off the scale into production bins is another way to speed up processes and maximize efficiency.
