Grape pressing in an environment with controlled oxygen levels

Oxygen plays a very important role during wine processing, but it can be either positive or negative. It is a known fact that must or wine exposure to oxygen reduces wine quality and exquisiteness due to oxidation, loss of fruit...

Pressing Systems

Open pressing system

Half of the press drum is perforated, while the other is covered by an impermeable membrane. An integrated compressor is used to establish the desired pressure within the press drum, which inflates the membrane and, consequently, starts pressing the grape mass and draining th...

Pneumatic Press with Cooling Jacket

A pneumatic press with a cooling jacket enables:

  • drum cooling before filling,
  • grape pomace cooling before and during pressing,
  • temperature regulation of the grape mass inside the drum according to enological recommendations,
  • controlled maceration process: pomace maceration at low temperature...

Fermenters

The objective of grape maceration is selective pigment (anthocyanins), tannin, and aroma leaching from grape berries. The important factors to bear in mind during this process are:
  • cap submerging/soaking intensity,
  • proper pomace temperature,
  • maceration time. 
The fermenter is a big help du...
