Experience and quality at your service

April 17, 1967 – The major of Piadena certifies the start of the business.

Grifo wine-making machines was founded fifty years ago, by Giordano Marchetti’s passion. At first, he was producing corkers for bottles. His ambition and passion lead him to work in the evening to produce his own corkers and sell it, so he got the idea to open his activity and produce oenological machines aimed at private users or small producers.

What better place than Piadena, in Cremona’s countryside, very characteristic area whose high quality culinary traditions are well related to Marchetti family’s aim to guarantee high quality products to all those who whish healthy and natural food on their tables. Wine production is an ancient and fascinating technique which, thanks to Grifo and his oenological machines, as well as all his range of products, allows, through a completely natural workmanship, for healthy and genuine final products.

Reliability, high quality, precision and made in Italy characterize our company, virtues that the two brothers Donato and Luca maintain constant. Our production includes manual and automatic machines that follows the whole grape development process: from pressing to filtering, bottling and capping.

The machines we offer today are the result of a process of constant qualitative and technological growth, which allowed us, lately, to expand our range. Blessed by our customer satisfaction, we decided to support our machines for wine production with other tools suitable for fruit processing. The results are fresh juices, ciders, bases for schnapps, distillates, liqueurs and syrups produced in your homes with raw materials of your own choice. That’s not all! Because of the deep respect we nourish for the culinary traditions, we are pleased to present some handily and high quality home appliances to transform and preserve what nature offers in genuine and healthy food.

Moreover, our range is complete of accessories, available to meet your specific needs.
