Abstract Risk management is a crucial aspect of the manufacturing industry, especially in the food sector, where potential risks can greatly impact product quality, safety, and reputation. The winemaking industry is no exception, and it is vital for winemakers to analyze and mitigate risks at every stage of production, including the bottling process. To support this endeavor, Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods, such as ÉLimination Et Choix Traduisant la RÉalité (ELECTRE) IV, can be useful in helping winemakers make informed decisions based on multiple criteria. In the context of winemaking, ELECTRE IV is herein applied to rank risks related to the bottling process of sparkling wine for an Italian winery. By considering multiple criteria simultaneously, the method provides a comprehensive evaluation of the risks and enables winemakers to prioritize their efforts towards mitigating the most significant ones. The analysis results provide valuable insights to plan proactive measures to reduce the likelihood and impact of risks and to support risk management efforts ensuring the production of safe, high-quality products.
