The highest quality wines require the highest quality fruit. Defranceschi is proud to partner with and support Protec Sorting Equipment which has developed a dedicated line for sorting berries and for quick and accurate elimination of foreign bodies such as rachises, leaves, leaves’ stems, and insects. The line includes the Roll Feeder Grader which properly distributes the berries and prepares them for inspection. It also performs the first stage of berry selection by separating stems, pedicels, seeds and skins thanks to a simple but effective mechanical roller system. The state-of-the-art X-Tri optical sorter then thoroughly sorts white and red grapes, removing not only defective but also underripe berries. The Protec X-Tri optical sorters provide the ultimate combination of quality and capacity ranging from 5 to 15 tons/hour.
