The partnerships between grape growers and wineries are the heart and soul of the wine industry, and communication is the hallmark of all great partnerships. Brixmark facilitates communication with tools that enable wineries and growers to better manage and share the information essential to their relationships, contracts, and the grapes at the center of their transaction.
In addition to managing harvest sample data, Brixmark will be launching a comprehensive contract management solution for grape growers and wineries in 2012.
Brixmark set out in 2011 to change the way wineries and growers interact. Founded by a group of wine and tech industry veterans, Brixmark aims to bring new channels of communication to the wine industry.
