Winery Introduces Artificial Intelligence Wines

Von Stiehl Winery in Algoma is bringing artificial intelligence (AI) to the science of winemaking. Owners Brad and Aric Schmiling have launched an effort to see if AI can improve the flavor of their wines. The winery plans to use two baseline wines to gather feedback, which it will utilize as input for blending new wines. The winery is inviting wine consumers to get involved in merging the wine and technology worlds by participating with input on their next wine release.Tasters can sample and rate each wine. Data collection will conclude on Jan. 15, 2024. The new blends will be released April 15, 2024, when participants will be able to purchase the wines and evaluate the AI influence on flavor.
