Premium Fresh Grapes & White Juice
For the 2012 harvest, we are bringing in grapes from two premier West Coast growing regions: Lake County, California and Washington State’s Yakima Valley. Supplies are limited for all of our premium grapes, so be sure to reserve early. We’ll need a deposit ($10 per lug, $250 per 1/4 ton bin, $500 per 1/2 ton bin) at the time of your order. Expect these grapes to be harvested and shipped to us on independent timetables, as they ripen. They generally arrive a few weeks later than Central Valley grapes.
Lake County is the agriculturally rich area surrounding Clear Lake – California’s largest lake – and is part of the prestigious North Coast AVA. Red grapes from the region tend to produce powerful, expressive red wines. Our Lake County grapes are available in small lots and sold exclusively through Keystone Homebrew Supply.
Washington State grapes benefit from lots of sun (more than California grapes, in fact!), but the cool temperatures mean that the grapes maintain good acidity through harvest. This results in unique and exciting wines, with terrific balance and elegance.
Please note that our premium grapes will be available in Montgomeryville only.
“1/2 Ton Bins” can range in weight from approximately 700 pounds to 1,000+ pounds. “1/4 Ton Bins” can vary from around 450 to 550 pounds.
