Saturnalia is a service designed to monitor vineyards and, consequently, wine production and its features by combining measures from space and from ground.
This document is intended to walk the reader through the potential of Saturnalia by discussing the 2019 vintage in Bordeaux. Saturnalia provides quality insights that were once only available to vineyard owners. We automatically collect, aggregate and process data to make grape status and performance indicators accessible when and where it matters, with the aim of providing accurate early wine quality predictions, well before any wine is tasted by the wine critics.
We generate a wine score in hundreds for the principal appellations and for several producers in the Bordeaux area. Please check our website or contact us to know more.
In general, 2019 looks like a very-good-to-excellent vintage. Data recorded from satellite and from ground - and discussed in this report - show, in general, very similar patterns to the 2015 and 2016 vintages. 2019 has warmth and dry weather, without the extremes of 2015 and 2018, in some instances more similarities with 2016 in terms of vineyards response. Best performers in this vintage seem to be Saint-Julien, Pauillac and Pomerol.
SVI: Saturnalia Vigour Index, a value computed from satellite data as the result of the continuous monitoring of the vineyard during the growing season. It is based on the content of chlorophyll in the vines.
