    The Cogni™ Wine Barrel Monitor from Simple Labs, a CES® 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree in Food & Ag Tech category, simplifies the winemaking process monitoring wine aging in barrel in real time.

(Las Vegas, NV) — Simple Labs, producers of the Cogni™ Wine Barrel Monitor a CES® 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Food & Ag Tech category, readies to simplify the winemaking process worldwide with the international premiere of their barrel monitoring system at CES 2023 January 5 - 8, 2023. Simple Labs is exhibiting at CES 2023 within CES Tech West in the Venetian Expo Level 2 Food Expo, Booth #53514.

Cogni™ is a patented, wireless, continuous, integrated barrel aging monitoring system that in the wine industry can track temperature, humidity, phenol/guaiacol, acetic acid, SO2, pH, alcohol and fill levels, making real-time data accessible to winemakers from anywhere worldwide. By forming a network of connected devices, with any number of barrels, if levels slip out of user-set tolerance ranges, Cogni alerts via mobile and desktop notifications. Winemakers can then review the current levels and recorded data to determine next steps.

“Of great benefit to wineries is the ability to immediately extract data from anywhere in the world, creating the ability to detect potential problems in the winemaking process before an issue occurs, as well as opportunities to better take care of wines in barrel,” said Simple Labs Founder and CEO Mike Slone, who invented Cogni, “In addition to optimizing the winemaking process, there are also labor cost savings in the cellar, and savings in terms of sending samples out to an exterior lab.”
