Probably doesn't exist unfortunatley. your best bet will probably be making friends with a mini winery or find a local home winemaker/brewer to borrow/share gear with.

Don't really need much equipment for winemaking, demijohn bung and airlock, hydrometer. Unless you are thinking about a grape winepress. Don't have to make wine from grapes lots of fruits can be used.

old school technique 4lbs fruit per gallon as rule of thumb.

I'm talking 600kg ferment. So demijohn won't cut it. I'm looking for a press and destemmer

A basket press can be hired/borrowed and you don't really need a destemmer. Do a search for 'carbonic maceration'.

Not making wine this year but last years batch was 1200kg, grapes weren't crushed.

Giganis on South Road also have a fair bit of gear. They strike me as the sort of mob who would know where to hire etc from too.
