Blockchain application will help to address the issue of counterfeit products and price dumping. In addition, buyer will have more confidence in wine producers, without mentioning convenience of receiving information and confidence in product authenticity.

The first wine blockchain was applied to is the Falanghina Wine produced by Cantina Volpone.
