Old wine press from 1630 stands out in Esterhazy Museum, Austria

During the EWBC – European Wine Bloggers Conference in Vienna, Austria, we visited the Esterházy Museum. One of the most impressive pieces I saw, was a press device from the 1630. It’s around 5 meters long, all in wood, and with a pretty small compartment for crushing the grapes. Check the video and you will see what I am talking about.

    having lived in Hungary (Mosonmagyarovar) for 7 months in 2009 I have to say we loved going to the palace and visitng the wine museum not to mention leaving with 1/2 case of wine every visit (Pinot Noir, Cabernet Savingnon). In face whenever any one from our company travels back to our plant in Hungary they must visit the palace and return with a bottle of Pinot for us each and every time. I am returning in Feb 2010 and will fall in love with the Burganland region all over again, cannont wait!!!!
