The winemakers of Chateau Ste. Michelle required an automated temperature control system that would improve efficiency and flexibility by monitoring and adjusting the temperature of wine throughout the entire fermentation process.


Logix installed a system that precisely controls tank temperatures, optimizes refrigeration machinery room operations, and reduces energy consumption. The solution was capable of monitoring fermentation activity and automatically changing setpoints based on fermentation rates. Requested safeguards to prevent overshooting tank cooling and icing during cold stabilization were implemented.

Within months of using the Logix system, Chateau Ste. Michelle staff reported enhanced operational efficiency, improved record keeping, and increased cost savings. The solution also reduced compressor horsepower requirements by 50%, yielding substantial energy savings.
