Equipment, Supplies and Services

Since 1979 Wines & Vines has published this Equipment, Supplies and Services issue for two reasons: to acknowledge the growing number of suppliers who provide the goods and services necessary to create today’s unparalleled quality of grapes and wines, and to help our readers stay abreast of exactly what is available to help them achieve their goals in the vineyard, winery or marketplace.

We chose the November issue because the most recent Northern Hemisphere crush should be complete, and industry players are now planning and budgeting for the next vintage.

Of course, we realize that the following compilation is incomplete, and listings are included as space allows. If we don’t know you exist, or if you missed our deadline, your company is not listed. If you would like to be included in the future, please contact us.

What follows, then, is a list of companies, their contact information and brief descriptions of new products and services available to help keep winemakers and winegrowers prosperous.
