Kelter (Wine Press)
This is an old wine press (called "Kelter" or "Weinpresse" in German) displayed in Eltville next to the rose garden. Presses like this one were used to get the juice out of the grapes. Nowadays there are machines doing that job, but these old wine presses are still nice to look at.
