Chilean Grapes & Juice
Chile produces consistently high-quality wine grapes thanks to very reliable weather that rarely produces spring frosts or harvest rains. The sunny climate, tempered by the Pacific to the west and the Andes to the east, promotes sweet fruit and ripe tannins. Carménère, perhaps Chile’s signature red wine, exhibits vibrant flavors of green peppers, dark chocolate, and ripe berries. It produces terrific varietal wines, and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. While many of the other varieties of grapes and juice listed below are also available from California in the fall, the change of terroir can deliver distinctive character. We have consistently received very positive feedback about our Chilean fruit every year that we’ve offered it.
The grapes are carefully packed into 18 pound lugs, loaded into refrigerated ocean containers, and then shipped up the west coast of South America, through the Panama Canal and up to us here on the east coast. This spring, for the first time ever, we are offering grapes and juice in Bethlehem as well as Montgomeryville. We expect to sell out of many varieties before the shipments arrive, so you should reserve in advance to get what you want. To secure your order, we will need a deposit of $10 per lug of grapes, and $20 per bucket of juice. After you’ve placed your order, please call our store to provide payment information for the deposit.
