At Adega de Borba the production of each grower is assessed through an ongoing monitoring system at each vineyard. Because we believe that great wine begins in the vineyard, the use of technology in the vineyards has had an increasingly important role.
 The use of a Geographic Information System since 2002 has allowed our technicians and associates to learn about each parcel through having access to a range of information, such as: soil type; the spacing of vines (distance from foot to foot and line by line); the year of planting; rootstocks; grape varietals; root conditions; type of irrigation; fertilisation, and so on. All these data give us intel on each parcel, which is available together with an analysis to control the maturation providing us with a database that allows the winemaker to plan the best possible results for each harvest.
