Local wine producers need to prove to the consumers the genuineness of their products.

An identification of products and assessment of the conditions in which the crops are handled and grown is needed at the Farm level.

Trucks that transport the grapes after the harvest or the processed product can be tagged by an RFID containing the information (e.g. where and how they’re carried, exact amount of grapes loaded/unloaded).

In the processing phase the winery conveys pressed grapes to tankers (each tanker is tagged with a passive RFID in which the user writes the data previously picked up from the truck, chemical parameters, temperature and humidity through sensors). During fermentation and ageing, cellars and wine information that helps the enologists are monitored (e.g. Ethyl alcohol, Glucose, Temperature, Malic Acid, Loose SO2, Acetic Acid).

Every information for a specific vintage can be retrieved at the Bottling Stage; such data will be written on a barcode that will be part of the label and will be the interface between the traceability system and the final consumer.

The retail phase may use the RFID tags and barcodes for different internal processes like stock entering, inventory, shelves replenishment and sales.

Consumer needs to find synthetic and adjusted information using his personal mobile phone to get data from the products to help him in the purchase decision; he would also be able to get information about its nutritional characteristics, provenance, quality labels, the processes the product has passed through.
