Take Control Over Wine Grape Quality
When it comes to a vineyard’s terroir, irrigation is one of the few factors that we can control and use to influence wine grape quality. How much and when to irrigate is the question, and precisely what we try to answer.
The objective of most irrigation strategies is to achieve an optimal level of vine stress that improves wine grape quality. Fruition Sciences has developed a revolutionary technology that “listens” to the vine’s water needs. It does this by measuring how much water the vine is transpiring (losing water) through its leaves via sap flow monitoring.

"It can make a huge difference in the quality of the wine. Using [Fruition] technology, we started dryfarming a lot of our vineyards.", says Cameron Vawter, head winemaker at Dana Estates.
How technology is transforming ancient winemaking traditions.
"With Fruition you can tell if 5 gallons was way too much or not enough." Elias Fernandez, Shafer Vineyards
