Initially people used to smile at me or say "you're brave!”. Somebody even commented, "well Oronce, you really are an artist!". The EQUIVINUM workshop has regular orders for work, and more than ever, I believe in the horse-drawn plows that I produce. From my small workshop in the Burgundy region, I practically equip all new vineyards that use horse-drawn farming methods. Year after year, my intuition told me that animal traction had a future ahead of it, which is why I created new tools that I adapted as closely as possible to the demands of new generations of winemakers. With an ever increasing respect for its magnificent terroirs and a desire to maintain Earth’s harmony, the world of wine that EQUIVINUM has become part of since 2006, has a promising and fertile future ahead of it.
Both now and in the coming years, a new dream can come true. Winegrowers who rely on animal traction methods need the help of a new player who can innovate and distribute these fine French tools in European vineyards, protect such industrial expertise and inform all wineries about the positive environmental impact!
For some 9 years now, Equivinum has specialized in helping wineries use workhorses in their vineyards, designing the technical equipment needed for the future.
We offer a full range of tried and tested, quality products to meet the current and future needs of demanding winegrowers committed to preserving their terroir.

Describe your project goal
Firstly, you can help me protect our current know-how, and secondly, you can support future research and development. Our current production level and sales prevent us from turning to traditional methods of funding. Your bold support will help me shape what is currently a promising winegrowing related sector.
EQUIVINUM needs a breath of fresh air! I wholeheartedly believe that wine lovers like you are my best chance of success.
Budget for "EQUIVINUM" industrial property protection:
Initial patenting costs: 4,855.00 € incl. tax (the remaining 50% of the total amount of 9,710.00 € will be funded by "Bourgogne Innovation & BPI").
- Cost of registration of 3 models with the patent: 2,485.00 € incl. tax
** TOTAL : 7,340.00 € incl. tax**
The aim is to exceed the objective so that I can develop this project even faster and more effectively. Believe me, we have a whole stock of prototypes and winemakers will be more than happy with such a revolution. When the time comes, I will proudly unveil the new designs that winemakers are asking me to create every year.
Every donation is important, regardless of the amount and your contribution will help make a dream come true for some fine winemakers.
