THE ZONIN FAMILY: A FAMILY FOR WINE

Linked with the land for seven generations, the Zonin family is at the head of the most important private winegrowing estate in Italy and also among the first in the European winegrowing sector.

Zonin currently owns over 2.000 hectares of vineyards in the most productive winemaking districts of Italy and is the country’s leading winemaking producer, yet none of the family style of operation has been sacrificed: from relations with co-workers to those with the market. The close link of Zonin with the vineyard is also focused around the family. Zonin defends the rural way of life, because the farming estates are just one big family, focused on the production of high quality wines.

SEARCH FOR QUALITY

For the Zonin family, the search for quality is the decisive production factor. As absolute protagonist in the winegrowing sector, Zonin has to look for new horizons to supply consumers with products with increasingly high quality organoleptic characteristics. This has marked the beginning of an extensive process based on two main aims: the renewal of the vineyards and the improvement of winemaking techniques. To reach the first target, extensive restoration work is being carried out in the vineyards, with the planting of hundreds of thousands of new plants and changes in the cultivation systems. Alongside this technical operation there’s a desire to concentrate on high quality autochthonous grape varieties, to make the most of territorial vocation, and to improve the qualitative yields of the great international grape varieties. As regards winemaking techniques, Zonin has carried out a large-scale renovation of its cellars, which are among the most modern in the world, and has implemented a continuous staff training process, starting with technical staff. Zonin sees quality as a mission: allowing everyone to drink the best of the Italian vineyard.

THE ESTATES

“Every region has its tradition, every region has its wine.” The production of the family estates is inspired by this principle. “Model winegrowing estates, from the regions best suited to the production of great wines.” The Zonin family made the dream of Thomas Jefferson, President of the United States from 1801 to 1808, come true, creating a huge winegrowing estate, Barboursville, which has become the ultimate expression of high quality international wines of the East Coast.

Tracking and traceability at Zonin

Production line tracking

THE SOLUTION

Tracciabilità interna

Zonin has solved the problem of tracking batches by introducing the Warehouse Management System (WMS), StockSystem by Replica Sistemi.

Initially efforts were concentrated on management of the finished product, but in future the system is expected to be extended to the management of picking the raw materials which feed the bottling line.

The flows managed are the receipt and labelling of production pallets, traditional warehouse stock picking with refilling functions from stock and reserve positions. Management of dispatches and journeys

ADVANTAGES

Advantages obtained with StockSystem:

  • Optimising of stock operations.
  • Optimising of packing and dispatches.

  • Tracking and traceability of materials.
  • Automatic feeding of data to the management information system.

With consequent:

  • Elimination of errors.
  • Reduction of time required to checking and store goods.
  • Reduction of picking times.
  • Reduction of checking times thanks to the Pick&Pack mode.

Conclusions

StockSystem enables us to:

  • Achieve internal and supply chain tracking.
  • Optimise the spaces available.
  • Know, in real time, the position and status of the goods stored.
  • Facilitate inventory operations.
  • Support operations for the preparation and dispatch of goods.
