Grape Order Form 2017 Spring rev2


We have a few buckets of California and Italian juice buckets remaining.   If you have not made wine yet please stop in or call to see what grapes and juice are available.



 We have frozen must from our 2011 through 2015 premier grapes.  The grapes have been crushed, de-stemmed, nitrogen purged, cold soaked and then frozen.   This is a top of the line product and there are single varietals from Napa, Suisun Valley, Paso Robles, Amador and Lodi.  We will be offering ½ gallon bags of these musts that can be added to a 6 gallon pail of juice.  Adding the grapes to the juice during fermentation will give your wine more flavor, color, tannin and aroma and many wine makers have used these musts in the last 2 years to enhance their wines.  The cost of the must is $14 per ½ gallon bag.

In 2015 we carried grapes from the Cochopoal Valley region near Santa Cruz. This region has Mediterranean temperatures, well protected and sunny vineyards and clay soils rich in minerals.
