Marchisio stainless steel ratchet presses offer high quality manufacturing and durability that will last for generations of winemaking. Ratchet presses are easy to use and do not require access to 30 PSI of water pressure like bladder style presses. Ratchet presses are ideal for pressing grapes and, with mesh bags, can be used for pressing apple pulp or other fruit.
Built in Northern Italy by Fratelli Marchisio S.P.A., one of the world's leading manufacturers of both hobby and professional equipment for winemaking, olive oil processing, and other food preservation. They manufacture equipment reliably with long experience in their use, and at competitive prices. For the home hobbyist, they can be relied on for all the heavy equipment and storage tanks needed in your winery, without breaking the bank. At The Beverage People, we feel a particular kinship with this company. After all, our wine industry in Sonoma and Napa Counties is largely the byproduct of the Italian emigrants of the mid-nineteenth century and their knowledge of grapes and wine. We are happy that the winemaking connections from Italy to California continue today.
