MacIntosh™ Wine Press

TARIFF HEADS-UP

Tariffs could soon be imposed on three categories of PHG products: Fruit presses, fruit grinders, and corn shellers. Prices will jump sharply if this happens, so we encourage you not to wait once you’ve made a decision!

Grapes to harvest for wineThe MacIntosh™ Wine Press is the ideal small-vineyard companion!

Turn your grapes into into delicious grape juice... and delectable wine. With its heavy duty construction, this press is built for quick and easy operation, and years of steady use.

Tip-off design: The frame yoke of the MacIntosh wine press quickly swiings clear for unobstructed basket loading and unloading. The speed and convenience of this design makes everything work faster and easier.

Best materials: With its rugged yoke made of strong 1.5" steel tubing, solid oak pressing basket and heavy gauge stainless steel pan, the MacIntosh wine press is built with quality components that make it fun to use. Compared to similar-looking presses, we've reinforced the MacIntosh with more steel at critical points. This lets it withstand more force so you get more juice out of your grapes or other fruit without damage to the fruit press.

It's important to keep the acme forcing screw well lubricated with food safe grease; this greatly reduces wear and turning effort, and dramatically increases maximum pressure and juice yield.

We recommend ordering an accessory mesh basket-liner bag to use with the press.

The wood parts of the MacIntosh press arrive pre-sealed. For future maintenance, we offer EZ-DO food-safe wood sealer.

  • MacIntosh Fruit Press
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I purchased the fruit press to accommodate our small orchard's Honey Crisp apple needs and have been extremely impressed. The product was delivered on time in a very sturdy container. Construction is even better than expected and the MacIntosh is a work of art. The minimal ssembly was completed by my elementary aged daughter. The pressing screw glides effortlessly through the pressing process so easily, my daughter easily completed the first press with her fingertips, completely pressing all liquid. The remaining fruit pulp is easily removed by using the fabric mesh bags, sold separately, and was fed to the chickens. Cleanup is completed with soap and water. I added lubricant to the metal shaft as well.

    Besides Honey Crisp apples, our orchard also includes: Concord grapes, red Latham raspberries, yellow Anne raspberries, Bartlet pear and Stella cherries. The fruit press was used to press from the entire orchard. Note - each fruit was pressed separately and then blended together for taste in the kitchen.

    The price for this labor saver was a steal. The fruit press has become my best friend, next to the bees.

  • This press has exceeded my expectations!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I am quite pleased. The press has surpassed all my wishes. Easy to operate, easy to clean and most important, the yield is wonderful.

    I bought 3 of the mesh bags and use all 3 in each press with 2 circular pieces from a plastic cutting board separating them. The mash is divided into thirds and the cider can only exit out the side of the press. I've found this to be very effective in increasing the amount of cider and the speed of doing so.

    Overall, I have nothing but praise for the McIntosh press. Easy to set up, easy to use, easy to clean. I've had it in use for a couple of weeks so far and the only issues I've had is the yield has been so good that we had to buy another freezer to accommodate the cider and even then we've given away almost 20 gallons and there are still more apples to come!

  • Love it!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Bought this last year and love it. The frame is compact but sturdy, and feels like you can put a lot of pressure on the fruit to squeeze out maximum juice. I also like that the optional grinder is separate from the press as one person can work the press while another grinds fruit for the next batch--it's more efficient having a separate unit.
    Moderator:

    Yep, the MacIntosh will take a lot of pressure. Our presses have more steel in key areas than others do, to prevent damage under high loads. Keeping the forcing screw well-lubricated with food grade grease will ensure that the turning effort stays easy while producing that force, too. Thanks for your review Kristine, we appreciate it!

  • This is the first and last press I may need to buy. Yes, it's that good.
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have used a couple of cider pressed a long time ago. I looked at our loaded apple trees and decided nobody could eat that much apple sauce or apple butter. Time to buy our own cider press. It was delivered in under a week. It looks great! Best thing, it works as great as it looks. Family loved the cider. Should have splurged and bought the apple grinder too. Well I guess there is Christmas coming up. If you plan on pressing more than a few gallons, this press is ideal. We love it so much, we are starting a new family and friends cider pressing day to share our delicious homemade cider and teach the young ones. The people at Pleasant Hill are so nice and helpful, I could not imagine ordering from anyone else.

  • Our Best Purchase of the Year!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Instead of once again begging and borrowing other peoples' cider presses, we finally decided to SPLURGE and get our own. Pleasant Hill Grain had the best combination of photos, descriptions, and helpful people on the telephone. We bought this press from PHG, set it up and used it for several days. After pressing over 20 gallons of cider, we let our friends use it, too.

    The MacIntosh press is rugged, beautiful and functional. We absolutely love it and are very happy we bought it.

    Thank you Pleasant Hill Grain for your help!

  • Great for a small crop of apples.
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I ended up with too many apples to juice and not enough to take to a commercial cider press. The MacIntosh Press was just right. It was well made, sturdy, easy to use and easy to clean. I was impressed with how much juice I got from the apples. I am looking forward to trying other fruit in it this year. I am hoping for a good grape harvest.

    I got this to process apples for wine making and it exceeds expectations. Works well, and is very durable. Awesome purchase!

  • Excellent product!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This is the second press we purchased which tells you we love it. We press the apples of 20 apple trees so we wanted a second press to speed the process. The apple grinder we purchased last year was also the perfect tool that doubled our output! Don't miss out on adding the grinder to your process.
