Grapes for Sale – Semillon – Amador

Contact: Ben Zeitman <ben@amadorfoothill.com>

Ben Zeitman writes:  “I have about a ton of Semillon grapes for home wine makers.
On Tuesday it was about 23 Brix.  If there are people willing to do an easy picking, Saturday is  the best time for us to assist.  The flavors are very nice.  I would charge $900/ton.  You would need to bring bins.”
