Important: As of 09/25/2015, the Jaffrey press had actually been discontinued. All parts will be kept in stock for repairs and warranty fixes. It has been superseded by the Homesteader wine press which we recommend in its place; the Homesteader is more substantial, better looking and cheaper to boot! Click here for the full description.
This is the year you make your own wine and discover the freshest, most flavorsome fruit juice you've been missing out on all this time. And that's just the end result! The real fun is loading up this press and witnessing the sheer volume of juice that can be extracted from all kinds of soft fruit: grapes, pitted plums, apricots, you name it. Put 'em all in and turn that handle!
The Jaffrey 8400 wine press is a fabulous press for producing wine and other juices and is a pleasure to use. It’s the same as the Jaffrey Cider Press, only without the apple grinder, which obviously isn’t necessary for pressing grapes and other soft fruit. (The grinder can be purchased separately if you decide to have one at a later date. See the Jaffrey apple grinder.)
The 8400 model features a heavy-duty 1" diameter pressing screw with Acme thread to exert a significant amount of pressure with minimal effort. With four threads per inch, the screw can be rotated very quickly.
A perfectly balanced heavy cast-iron flywheel with hardwood handle rotates the drum mounted on the steel shaft, allowing for smooth, easy pressing.
The large steel-banded pressing tub will hold the equivalent of one bushel of pulp, ideally inside a fitted, fine-mesh pressing bag. A bag will make sure that the skins, stems and pulp are kept separate while only the juices flow through. Please note that the pressing bags are not included with the press and must be ordered separately.
The press frame and tub consist of solid Maple wood for stable strength and it is advised that you apply a final finish of Poxycoat or varnish, lacquer or mineral oil (see available protective coatings). The uprights also consist of sturdy maple and the extra wide-stance legs provide good stability under the grinding and pressing action.
The 8400 model also features a sliding collecting tray with a bottom juice drain.
You'll get an immense amount of enjoyment from the Jaffrey 8400. It's an attractive piece of engineering that's as much an ornament as it is a tool. Look after it and it will produce wine and fruit juice for many generations to come.
