Made in Italy, and bought in Italy!

Postby usmcruz » Wed Jul 02, 2014 8:03 am

I think I hit the mother load here. I'm not a big winemaker, but man there is really good deals on equipment, stainless steel fermenters, presses, Crusher destemmers. 150 liter stainless steel bladder press is $500 here, 100 gallon stainless steel fermenters with spigots are $130 dollars, and this beast, of a capper because it's a solid piece of chrome plated steel with both attachments for American and champagne caps was only 88 euro which is roughly $100

I also seen a 12 plate wine filter with pump setup to be run right away for $120 euro

If you want one send me the money and I'll get one to you. I'm gonna take video of his store,and show you all the prices. I was thrown back by the price of that 150 liter stainless steel bladder press for making wine. 90 liter bladder press on more wine is going for $1420, and 150 liter stainless steel bladder press goes for $500. I'm very selective on how stuff is built, and I like to inspect stuff and see if it was built cheaply, and from a fabrication, and quality standpoint, his stuff is top notch!! When I come back to the states I'm buying a bunch of his stuff. He has a huge stainless steel grape press that I can literally fit my wife, and 4 kids in it, and it's going for $1200. Even the caps for 100 count was $1, and a case of 24 count 16 ounce heavy duty hefeweizen bottles were selling for $5.

Thanks brother! Yeah Italy has been treating me good, but my job has taken up a lot of my time, which leaves almost zero time to get on here, plus it's a full time job ducking and dodging all this pasta in the land of carbs! I swear here they start you off with bread, followed with pasta, then they bring out a panini, only to wash it down with a baguette! :lol:

I agree, it is good to hear from you! I'd love to see the fermenter! (Guessing that you meant 100 liter, although I would love to be wrong on that one!) I wouldn't mind having a couple of those myself...

I don't mind shipping things to you guys. You guys might wanna take advantage of me being here while you can! :P I might be mistaken on the gallons, you may be right it might be liters, but the price for what you get is pretty damn good. My next day off which is Monday, I'll take pictures and video. I seen brand new toasted 55 gallon barrels for $110 today.

My fear is that International shipping would be costly, more that the capper itself. If you have the room when coming back, the cost to ship within the States is much less and much easier.

They have flat rate boxes here, so if i can break it down into a flat rate box, shipping is $5 plus the cost of the box. They have a usps on base here. Im not sure about larger items though.

Did you ever take the video? I'm still interested in those fermenters if they are 100 liter (although I'd love to have a 3 barrel SS fermenter for that price!).

I hope you and the family enjoy celebrating the Winter holidays abroad! I enjoyed one courtesy of the USN in the middle of the IO watching ships from the USSR watch us. (okay so that dates me a bit...)
