18th Century Massive Oak-wood Wine Pressing Table From Burgundy France

18th Century Massive Oak-wood Wine Pressing Table From Burgundy France

18,000.00

From the 13th century until 1920s, the wineries of Maçon in the heart of France devised a mechanical system with counter-weight. 

The pressing wine leverage system transformed the fruits of the harvest in late September into juice before the fermentation, to produce the finest wines of Burgundy. 

They could produce more than 13,000 liters for wine in a day. 
This massive oak-wood table comes from the heritage of french wine making of Burgundy. 

Belonging to the Duchy of Burgundy, the mechanical system was designed often as a ceremony to the birth of the first heir of the Duke. The pressing system entered the French patrimony in the 14th century when King Louis XI registered them as a piece of living historic heritage.

Ours is a 10 piece table belonging to the pressing system, supported by 4 metal rods.

The table comes directly from the heart of Burgundy, in the “chais” (wine storeroom) of the caves of Maçon.
