The wine industry, as any agricultural based industry, is a large consumer of water. Water is used in many parts of the wine-making process and opens the industry up to vulnerability during times of water scarcity, and the problem is only set to become worse. It is a globally recognized threat that access to clean water is becoming scarcer as well as more expensive. Therefore, many are investing now in water reuse solutions to help reduce their water footprint and make them less dependent on outside factors, reducing the risk to their business.
From the vine to the bottle, water is used in all parts of the wine-making process. q Vine Irrigation 16-92 gal/bottle of wine ..
Growing grapes requires a large volume of water, varying significantly depending on the location and grape variety. It has been reported that anywhere between 16 and 92 gallons of irrigation water is required to produce one bottle of wine. During the production of wine, water is used as process water as well as for washing and cleaning. It is estimated that the use of water is four times the amount of wine produced. It is in this area that there has been great interest in implementing wastewater treatment technologies to allow the reuse of the water. Once wine has been produced it must be packaged. Many may not consider it, but water is also used heavily in this stage for washing, cleaning, and spot- free rinse for quality branding purposes.
