Willmes is highly respected and valued in the global wine industry. They invented the pneumatic grape press, they continue manufacture very high quality ('golden standard' as they call it) equipment with features not found on other presses, and they export to 20 countries.

Here are some of the reasons why we choose Willmes:

  • Established in 1918, they have over 100 years' experience of pressing technology
  • Their engineers invented the pneumatic grape press (in 1951)
  • Their press systems meet the highest requirements of quality and efficiency in grape processing, and produce high quality juice at low pressures
  • The Willmes pressing principle, which consists of double membrane technology and vertical juice drains, and when compared with conventional systems, this results in 50% lower pressure pressing, <40 or 70% lower lees (depending on model), 25% or 30% more filling quantity (depending on Willmes model), and yields <90 or 95% at pressures of less than 0.8 bar (depending on model). Read our Willmes Pressing Principle blog for more information on these results.
  • Their presses are easy to operate, easy to clean, and very low-maintenance
  • Their presses also allow good pressing performance with small amounts of grapes
  • All Willmes presses are manufactured in Germany
