California Harvest Update

As of September 20, 2018


Our season is well underway, around 2 weeks ahead of schedule.  

During the week of September 10, we received the first pick of Central Valley red and white grapes.  We'll see the second Central Valley pick this week, with most varietals available. A few Lodi varietals will trickle in too.  We received Kings River Cab last week and they were excellent with more on the way.

This weekthe Old Vine Zinfandel first harvest is in.  Its our special Old Vine, grown in red clay and only available at Beer & Wine Hobby.  Many other Northern varieties are also avialable this week, including Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, Merlot, Malbec and more.

Its our first year with the Ancient Vine grapes, and they are excellent.  We crushed and destemmed alot last weekend, and the Alicante was very impressive.  The juice was bright red, some of the brightest we have ever seen!  Its a great varietal if you are thinking of trying something new.

Paso, Lanza and Washington State grapes will begin to arrive soon.  How soon?  Only Mother Nature knows.....stay tuned for more updates.

Collina del Sol juice is arriving weekly.  Mosto Imperatore will arrive soon.  Our flagship wine juice, Mosti Mondiale

will arrive either the first or second week of October.

Place your orders in now for the best selection of grapes!
