wine/grape press


Explanation:
călcătoare este vasul unde se zdrobesc strugurii.
cred că la toate le ziceau "press", singura diferenţă era/este metoda de a stoarce strugurii.

The wine presses have 4-foot-square (1.2-meter-square) basins, where monks would have used their feet to smash grapes. A hole at one end of each press likely fed into a lower basin, which caught the pressed juice.
