Vignaioli del Morellino
WPura Ultrafiltration System
WGuard C Microfiltration and CIP System
Cantina Cooperativa Vignaioli del Morellino di Scansano, founded in 1972, is today formed by 160 members whose vineyards extend over the hills surrounding Scansano, in the province of Grosseto, for about 600 hectares. The wide variety of products include white, rosè and red wines and focuses on the main protagonist in the area, the Morellino, of which are produced many shades such as Sicomoro Riserva, Roggiano Riserva and Vignabenefizio. In addition to receiving numerous international awards (Decanter, Concours Mundial de Bruxelles, Gilbert & Gaillard, AWC), the Cantina has a strong attitude towards environmental sustainability, as evidenced by the Carbon Footprints of Morellino Scansano DOCG and Morellino by Scansano Roggiano DOCG.
The sharing of the same values (quality of products, environmental sustainability and safety of the production process) was the basis for a profitable and long-lasting collaboration between Vignaioli del Morellino and Win&tech. Today, Vignaioli del Morellino uses two Win & tech systems: an Ultrafiltration system for service water and a Microfiltration and CIP syste. The latter was tailored to fit into the pre-existing cellar context: the microfiltration part, consisting of four online stages, was divided by the CIP one while maintaining a single control station for both systems. This solution has allowed the customer to switch from a single shift production to a double shift one, increasing significantly the productivity. In addition, this system is able to work with two filling machines.
Both systems feature advanced reporting capabilities designed to meet the requirements of quality certifications, such as detailed production records and a historical set of statistics.
The collaboration between Win&tech and Vignaioli del Morellino is an example of how, through a tailor-made system, it is possible to increase productivity without sacrificing safety and traceability. In addition, through the integration of closed-loop washings with low-use chemicals and heat, environmental sustainability becomes a further opportunity for business.
