How to Destress This Harvest Season

Harvest is a stressful time of year for everyone in and around wine production. You’re getting all your ducks in a row before those grapes arrive! You may be asking yourself: How do I make sure I’m prepared? That my team is engaged and mistakes and unnecessary work is minimized?

The answer, in one word: organization. The more organized you are, the smoother the season will be, the lower stress and more balanced and fulfilled team members you’ll have.

One great way to get organized is to pass off the burden of managing day-to-day workflow and harvest data. How you ask? Meet InnoVint, the best harvest partner you’ll find. InnoVint’s wine production software will manage your data and workflows to make your life so much easier.

Consider having a resource for all this:

Leading up to Harvest

Fruit Cost Tracking

Harvest Is Here!

Automatic Generation of Weigh Tags

Chances are you’re making more adds during harvest than other times of the year. No more stressing about whether or not your interns documented the crazy long batch numbers. Have full traceability of each of your additives, when it was added, who added it, and it’s fully-compliant if the FDA comes knocking on your door.
