The eProvenance Global Tracker was created to monitor fine wines during the distribution process. The device sends text messages that give real-time updates with temperature and humidity data as well as a shipment’s geolocation. This tracking is necessary, says eProvenance, to protect wines from extended exposure to temperatures that could set off chemical reactions that would degrade color, aroma, and aging effectiveness.
