As you are dusting off your stored equipment or resurrecting hand-me-downs, think of TCW Equipment for servicing many different types of winery equipment. Bring in your pumps now for a checkup. It is the worst to have a pump fail in the middle of harvest. Don’t forget about your destemmer crushers, presses and any of your bottling equipment that might need some minor or major adjustments.
Don't forget to stock your backup pump impellers, new hoses, press hydraulic oil, etc.
WE SUPPLY PRESSES
18 February, 2013
The outrage! The inhumanity! The cruelty of it all!
It has come to our attention that we were not included in a recent Wine & Vines magazine article that featured basket presses and suppliers. TCW Equipment/The Compleat Winemaker has state of the art presses which we have been supplying to wineries for over 40 years. We are the sole authorized distributor of Mori presses in the USA. We carry lab size presses to large 18 hecta-liter programmable cycle basket presses as well as various sizes and styles of other basket presses.
As you are planning and budgeting for crush, come by our new show room in Santa Rosa or call Joe Flemate (707) 595-2019 for equipment and supplies. Watch for our monthly deals as well.
So remember TCW, if you need a press large or small. We are here to fill your press needs.
