Winery Floor Drains

The wine making process has several steps, all which require some form of trench drain system. These stages include grape pressing, fermentation, barreling and then bottling.

In patio and serving areas, there are a wide variety of grate options in order to enhance an aesthetically pleasing environment.

Standard trench drain practices for fork truck and pallet jack use include a frame and some sort of cast iron grate. If not required, many options are available for pedestrian or even automobile traffic load.


  • Grapes of Wrath
    Wine has a tendency to be a bit acidic which can eat away at some materials. Ensure that your grates and trench drain system are able to handle harsh chemicals.
  • Roll out of Barrels
    Consider what will be going across the drain so that you can select appropriate grates. Make sure they are durable enough to accommodate forklifts and pallet jacks moving heavy barrels and other loads.
  • Location, Location, Location
    Consider where trench drains will be located in order to gain easy access for cleaning. It’s also important to have trench drain systems in storage areas for risk management of potential spills
