Drones over the vineyards

Bernard Magrez, owner of 40 chateaus/wineries around the world, has floated a first for Bordeaux: unmanned drone surveillance.

Vitisphere reports that he has purchased a €50,000 octocopter with a camera to surveil his own vines at the rate of 25 acres an hour. That compares with a rate of about ten for a team of eight humans. Maybe the drone will spy on workers to see if zey are ze nap in zevineyards??

The drone has a range of eight miles and can go 8,000 feet high. No word if it can alsodeliver Amazon orders. But it will probably contribute to promotional videos for the estates.

The post Drones over the vineyards appeared first on Dr Vino’s wine blog.
