Winemaking Machinery and Equipment Suppliers

Grape pressing is one of the most significant operations during processing of the grapes. In order to achieve a constant quality of wine, the pressing should always be adapted to the particular grape quality. Above all the grape variety, the degree of ripeness and the proportion between stalks and vine berries have to be taken into consideration.


Before pressing, the winemaker has to determine the style of wine (fruity, young, wine for ageing, etc.) and the type of wine (sparkling wine, rose, etc.) he wants to acquire. During the process of pressing, it is possible to get fractions of grape must with very different physical and chemical characteristics. The winemaker can significantly influence the final character of the wine by including or excluding a certain fraction.

Pressing Equipment:

Up (parent)

Basic characteristics:


- all parts which are in contact with must are made of stainless steel
