winepress

The wine press separates the must (liquid juice of the grape) from the pulp (solid components of the mash, the crushed grapes "poured" on the winepresses) and lets it flow into a tank. For many centuries, the massive tree press made of oak wood, that was invented in Greee, dominated the appearance of pressing houses. It was followed by the screw press around 1900, the hydraulic press and since the 1960s, the electrically operated horizontal press with constantly refined technology and fully automatic control of the operations. Historic presses and their working methods can be seen in the German Wine Museum in Oppenheim, as well as in some wineries and squares of the wine villages.
