I have a question I hope you can help me with. It’s about the grape destemmer on your website. I would like to know if the crusher rollers on this destemmer are adjustable. I have very small grapes and need to be able to crush and destem them. They are foch grapes and this is their forth year. This is my first year for a full crop.
Thanks for your help.
Dear Rusty C.
While the crusher rollers on the crusher/grape destemmer are not adjustable, they are optimally set by the manufacturer. They will crush smaller grapes such as the Marechal Foch you have or Cabernet Franc among others. Grapes that are even as small as a dime are not an issue with this grape destemmer. It will also crush larger grapes such as Concord equally as well.
The picture on the right is a bottom view of the rollers and their spacing. As you can see they are very close together. The picture also shows the fluted ridges that are on each crusher roller. This makes it easy for the grapes to be grabbed by the rollers and crushed.
I hope this information helped you out. If you have any other questions please ask.
