The global wine-making industry has faced challenges due to the increasing demands of consumers, particularly in emerging markets such as China, Brazil, India, and Russia. Controlling the quality during wine production is one of the key challenges faced by global winemakers to produce wine with appropriate sensorial properties tailored to specific markets. The wine production quality is constituted from a number of environmental factors such as climate, soil, and temperature, which affect the sensorial properties and the overall quality. This paper proposed a rule-based quality analytics system (RBQAS) to capture physicochemical data during wine production and to investigate the hidden patterns from the data for quality prediction. It consists of IoT for data capture on a real-time basis, followed by association rule mining to identify relationships between sensorial and physicochemical properties of wine.
