Bakus, vineyard robot, in the rolled pebbles of Châteauneuf-du-Pape

When you think of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, you think of cicadas, sun, and wine. When Bakus thinks of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, he thinks of the vines and its famous pebbles.

Thus, these rolled pebbles have become the emblem and reputation of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyards. In the 70’s, Californian wine growers even tried to buy them.

Bakus at the Château de Mont-Redon, vineyards in rolled pebbles

It is thus in the Vaucluse that we go last March. At the château de Mont-Redon, famous for your unique land. Bakus, our electric and autonomous straddle tractor, has worked the soil in several plots. One of them is obviously made of rolled pebbles in its entirety, or almost.

Ours electric intervines have once again demonstrated their full potential: robustness, agility, power and strength.

However, this type of soil is not easy to work, the pebbles being sometimes very large and in sufficient quantity to leave no rest for the tools or the robot.

The trajectory of Bakus was however perfect as you can see in the video at the end of the article.

Choosing a vineyard robot in Provence

Why choose a vineyard robot in Provence and on pebble-type vines? As mentioned above, these vines require the tractor operator to concentrate at all times to maintain an optimal trajectory. In addition, the tools have to be adjusted very precisely.

This is what Bakus can do, very simply. The trajectory is automatically corrected by the robot. The tools can be adjusted before and during the work of the autonomous straddler, via the control smartphone.

This allows you to dedicate your staff to less strenuous tasks while supervising the robot.

But more than words, let’s watch together the video of this beautiful demonstration. Again, a huge thank you to château de Mont-Redon for its welcome in its magnificent vineyards.
