Marchisio 160 L / 42 Gallon water bladder presses offer high quality manufacturing and modern features that ratchet presses can't match. Water bladder presses are easy to use, they get better juice extraction than ratchet style presses, and are more gentle on the fruit. Dry ice may be placed within the press shroud to minimize O2 contact while pressing, aiding in color preservation in both red and white wines. Water bladder presses are ideal for pressing grapes, and were originally designed for pressing apple pulp with optimal extraction. They have also been used for herbal tinctures, de-watering marinated vegetables, pressing honeycomb, and many other applications. A garden hose to hose barb connection PS04 and a short piece of tubing makes attaching a garden hose simple.
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.
