Welcome to Costaflores
Welcome to Costaflores Organic Vineyard, Perdriel, Mendoza, Argentina. Three grapes: Malbec + Petit Verdot + Cabernet Sauvignon = one organic wine: the single vineyard behind the world's first wine-backed cryptocoin.
The goal of the Openvino Project is to create the world’s first open-source winery, and wine-backed cryptocurrency.
Mike Barrow, the owner of Costaflores Organic Vineyard, explains how Openvino and blockchain are transforming his boutique winery from Mendoza, Argentina.
Why an Open Source Company?
extreme transparency and traceability
How can "extreme transparency" bring value to a boutique winery? Using low-cost IoT sensors, 360° cameras, open-source accounting and ticketing software, Costaflores Organic Vineyard exposes EVERYTHING, and becomes the world's first open-source winery.
Wine coins and the Blockchain
market driven pricing
Presenting the world's first wine-backed cryptoasset! It's like bitcoin, but for wine. One MTB18 token is worth one bottle of the Argentine organic wine, "Mike Tango Bravo 2018", from Costaflores.
What technology is being used?
DiY internet of Vines
The Openvino project is transforming the Costaflores Organic Vineyard, bringing the Internet of Things to the Internet of Vines. Mike Barrow explains how low-cost technologies provide "extreme transparency and traceability", a window into the day-to-day operations of this small Argentine vineyard.
