Equipment Performance & Quality Service

Introducing ScottProtect™, a new service to ensure your machine investment is not only secure but also performing at its peak. Winemaking has enough surprises – maintaining your equipment should not be one of them.

Decades of hands-on service and care has solidified our philosophy that planned, intervaled service not only enhances the performance and overall life span of a machine but can also help reduce more significant breakdowns. With ScottProtect™, your machine will be under the care of our experienced technicians, ensuring peace of mind and optimal performance.


Making sure your press is always running at optimal working conditions increases uptime and efficiency, ensuring harvest is smooth and surprise-free.


The unique design of the Willmes press allows for the highest yields under the lowest pressures on the market. Our Senior Technicians will provide thorough training for your staff, ensuring the programs are designed to complement your fruit and processing approach.


Maximize the life of your investment with scheduled preventative maintenance checks, avoiding costly repairs, shortened or compromised press life, and unplanned downtime.
