Wine, the nectar of the gods. It's been around for centuries and is a huge part of every day culture. If you're a wine lover than you may find this antique wine press pretty imPRESSive!

Made of antique oak and cast iron, this combination grape crusher/wine press from the early 20th century once crushed grapes for the perfect glass of wine. Non-functioning today, the wine press would have been used to produce small batches of wine, and makes a great conversation piece!
