Description Details Safe handling

Using VinoCrush® Classic on red grapes increases wine yields by   3–5%. It also reduces wine turbidity by more than 50% after alcoholic fermentation.

VinoCrush® Classic decreases your post-fermentation clarification costs. This can result in savings of at least €1/$1.25 per hectoliter of wine.

With  VinoCrush® Classic you can run your press cycles 20% faster. That means you can process a higher tonnage of grapes within the same period of time. You can also eliminate the risk of herbaceous flavors when you're using lower press pressure.
