Winemaker launches equipment repair service

San Luis Obispo, Calif.—Winemaker Fintan “Fin” du Fresne launched Winery Mechanical Systems, which he says in the Central Coast’s first provider of comprehensive, winery-specific repair and maintenance services. Concurrently, du Fresne will remain in his longtime position as winemaker and general manager for Chamisal Vineyards and Malene Wines. “I have personally lived through the challenge of keeping a winery running smoothly and cost effectively,” said du Fresne in a press release.

The company’s operations include two staff members as well as contractors chosen for their winery experience. Winery Mechanical Systems’ managing technician Daniel Krichevsky has more than a decade of winemaking and winery facilities maintenance experience on the Central Coast.

Winery Mechanical Systems is also partnering with key winery equipment manufacturers to operate as an authorized service agent. Krichevsky has already trained with Scott Laboratories in Sonoma County to service equipment|such as Willmes presses and Armbruster grape destemmers, sorters and conveyors.
