"As advances in technology rapidly transform our world, the wine business, often perceived as an arcane mix of immutable tradition and arbitrary complexity, will not be exempt. The OpenVino OpenVino® Project seeks to revolutionize the way wine is thought about, sold, and consumed. We are actively seeking participants from the technology and wine worlds and the press to explore new ways to talk about organic viticulture, transparency and ethical business practices, blockchain trading technologies and new models of ownership and value assessment. Whether your interests lie in wine, technology or business; organic viticulture, cryptocurrencies or product distribution, we invite you to explore The OpenVino OpenVino® Project."

What is the


OpenVino® project?

OpenVino OpenVino® is an experimental collection of open-source software packages, business processes and designs, currently under construction by a global team of idealists. OpenVino is not a company, and we are not developing products to be commercialized in the future. While the first implementation of OpenVino is being built Openvino is developed as a proof-of-concept for the Costaflores boutique winery in Mendoza, Argentina, we hope our experiments will be freely adopted and modified by other wineries and businessessubsequent versions available in 2021will be freely available for other wineries in the world. Here is an in-depth project overview.

What are the objectives and requirements?

Here we have laid out our project objectives and requirements in 6 information silos

1) Growing the Grapes – all things about organic viticulture

2) Making and Delivery the Wine – from the crush and bottling, to storing, shipping and exporting.

3) Managing the Business – general accounting, inventory, financial, personnel, taxes

4) Selling Wine-backed Cryptocurrency – using the blockchain to build customer-defined pricing

5) You Drink It, You Own it – how customers respond to their drinking experience

6) Telling our Story – Getting the word out

Here are the pieces we are putting together, and here is the cookbook we are writing as we go forward.
