After the grape harvest, the grape seeds are carefully separated from the pomace left over from pressing the grapes and dried. Grape seeds have an oil content of 12 to 16 percent. With gentle pressing, only about a quarter of this oil is obtained. Thus, we need about 45 kilograms of grape seeds for one liter of grape seed oil. This is equivalent to the quantity of two tons of grapes. In order to preserve the valuable nutrients, the Strassner organic oil mill in Pöttsching processes our seeds in an extremely gentle pressing process using a stone mill.
