Great news! A great deal has just gotten better. We've just lowered the price of our Marchisio Grape Crusher / Grape Destemmer by $76.04. This makes the new price $698.28. And that includes FREE shipping to anywhere in the 48 states. This unit is both a grape crusher and grape destemmer. It crushes the grape clusters through two roller mills and then drops them into a trough where it removes the stems. The only thing that goes in your fermenter are crushed grapes. Not only does it do a beautiful job of preparing your grapes for fermenting, it'll save you a lot of work and a lot time. It is able to easily handle over 2000 lbs. of grapes in a single hour. Just crank the handle at a normal, human speed and the grape destemmer does all the rest. This is no toy. This is the real-deal. Made by Marchisio (mar-Ke-zee-oh) of Italy, a world leader in winery equipment. Visit our website to learn more and to place your order. This price will only last until we run out of our current stock. ----------------------------------- Ed Kraus is a 3rd generation home brewer/winemaker and has been an owner of E. C.
