I am green with envy. Fantastic (and useful) piece of bling
My wife always professed her desire to marry a man with a body like a Greek god. Somehow I don't think she meant one shaped like Bacchus...

Please update on how well this press has performed for you. I'm shopping for the 55L. I have used a 40L in the past and it's sometimes a bit on the small side, and the 80L is too big. But the 55L seems like the perfect size for me.

Since he doesn't appear be on the board today I will answer for WSW. He loved it but decided he wanted a bigger one as he is ramping up production next harvest. He has since sold it and is shopping for a larger press.

Yup. It was an awesome press. Couldn't have asked for anything better for the money. I am buying the 250L version of the same press so I can make more wine this year!
