As a winemaker, you should control how much you crush your grapes – not your pump. Unfortunately, certain types of pumps continually pinch and grind the tannins out of your grapes’ skins and seeds and into your wine.

Wilden pumps maintain high volume without distorting flavor harmony. Knowing how much your pumps can move isn’t enough. It’s time to ask how your pumps move your product.
