Did you ever want to feel like a wine connoisseur when you’re sifting through a never-ending shelf of options? Well, a new mobile app that helps the traceability of wine has just been launched by the Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries, Food and Animal Rights.
“Agri-Kwalita’ is our mission statement,” Minister Anton Refalo said in a press conference earlier today, “and [this] product is over and above what is required at EU standard.”
Let’s admit it, we’ve all been around folks who know their stuff when it comes to wine.
Hovering beside them as they contemplate the texture and consistency of their drink often leaves us dumbfounded, and maybe a little sad at the ensuing social exclusion.
But in the weeks to come, this feeling could become a thing of the past.
The app would deliver information tied to any, specific wine bottle under the remit of the Maltese and Gozitan Controlled Denomination of Origin (DOK).
By scanning the bottle-specific QR code, wine producers to wine consumers will now be able to access information tracing back to the territory of production, and its quality too. All information from process to production.
A fine way to ensure transparency, as far as wine certification goes. If not a means to pave one’s way into wine connoisseurship.
