The Use of Drones in Wineries

46259_42-44992070

As climates change and traditional wine growing environments heat up, vineyards are looking at ways to protect against a loss of quality and income in their growing.

Californian grape growing Ryan Kunde has been making use of drone aircraft in the fight against climate change.

He analyzes aerial images from his fleet of drones as part of a broader “precision farming” movement to determine where he can reduce the amount of fertilizer, water or energy that is used to grow grapes. This, Kunde argues, will lower greenhouse gas emissions and help “slow the rate of climate change.”

Wine and Good Health

3 good reasons to drink red wine

  1. Good for the health of your heart
  2. Anti -Cancer properties

 Red wine and resveratrol: Good for your heart?

Resveratrol might be a key ingredient in red wine that helps prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol) and prevents blood clots.

Wine: How Much Is Good for You?

“A recent study shows a boost in brain power for women who enjoy a little alcohol. The study, published in the Jan. 20 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine, evaluated more than 12,000 women aged 70-81. Moderate drinkers scored better than teetotalers on tests of mental function. Researchers found a boost in brainpower with one drink a day. Moderate drinkers had a 23% reduced risk of mental decline compared with nondrinkers.”
