The 47th week of the year was especially intense and constitued a human and logistic challenge for WFT’s team: to exhibit in 2 international fairs while maintaining the proper functioning of the current activity.
The Vinitech-Sifel took place from 20th to 22nd in Bordeaux (France) while the Austro Agrar was held in Tulln (Austria) from 21st to 24th november.
With respectively 45.000 and 61.000 visitors, these fairs were not to be missed.


At WFT, we are aware of the constant evolution of winemakers’s needs around the world in terms of automation of process and wine fermentation control. Therefore, innovation is and has always been core to our concerns. We thus have been able to present a digital refractometer, last development of our research efforts.

The latest technological advances in the domain of process and wine fermentation control were highlighted on our stand, where we had the pleasure to welcome numerous visitors coming from places as far as Australia, South Americas, the Caucasus or Middle-East.

In addition to our latest micro macro-oxygenation bus system, we were proud to present our new digital refractometer. This technological feat, totally unprecedented in wine technology, will guide the fermentation of red and white wines based on the actual sugar content of the wine. An innovation that opens a new era for the modern control of fermentation processes, and for which visitors have shown great interest.
