Wine production controlled through new technology

The absence of absolute control over the grape-growing process has always been part of the charm of winemaking. But now a new generation of sensor-driven viticulture tools is giving growers the ability to monitor and measure their vines like never before. Remote sensors with the ability to detect everything from how much water a plant is storing to how much light is falling on the ripening grape are revealing valuable information about just how variable the biosphere of a single vineyard can be.
