This article covers how to add an "Apple" source in InnoVint to track cider production.
- First, the "Apple" source option must be activated for your facility. Contact email@example.com if you need the "Apple" source option enabled. InnoVint also offers "Pear" and "Fruit" source options if you are fermenting fruit other than grapes or apples.
- Click into the Vineyard Explorer from the side bar menu, and in the upper right hand corner click "Add Vineyard."
- Add a new "vineyard" (which can be labeled as an orchard in the "Vineyard name") for the apples. Be mindful that the appellation source must match the varietal source (notice in the images below how there is the small "Apple" subtitle).
After your block is added you can create a Fruit Lot or Juice/Wine Lot the same way as you would with wine. For more information on setting up your InnoVint account, refer to the Getting Started Checklist.
