Salt Reduction

Lees Filtration

Lees can be undesirable in a finished wine, but inefficient filtering can cost the winemaker. With some lees being comprised of up to 80% juice, proper lees filtration can significantly improve volume recovery.

How does it work?

Our rotary drum filter recovers wine from lees by scraping a pressed lees ‘cake’ through fine cutting passes in the drum. By applying suction to the drum, we can retrieve released juice without allowing the solids to return to the wine.


  • Increasing yield by recovering wine volume from lees
  • Simple operation
  • Simplifies winery waste management
