When Tom of Amador Foothill Winery contacted us a couple months ago, he was looking for a custom fabricated Stainless Steel grape press hopper to be made for his older press. We knew what we had to do and design one that met his specifications in house. After some cutting bending and stainless TIG welding, we were able to drop a brand new hopper to his vineyard just before the crush!
It was long after that more Vineyards and Winerys came knocking on our door for custom pieces for their older equipment. We were even able to help the Notestine's of 9 Gables with a brand new hopper on short notice saving them hours of back breaking shoveling into the small press openings.
