How the Destemmer came to life

A customer asked us whether we could develop a machine for destemming grapes. He had ten people lined up, standing by crates, manually turning the grapes from the bunches. A labour-intensive job.

Our machines don't process fully autonomous (yet). Not that we can't make them, the costs are holding back for the time being.
