Grapes for Sale: Cabernet Sauvignon – Davis (Group Buy or Individual Buy)

Contact directly Seth Brunner at sethbrunner@sbcglobal.net for the group buy, or Marcus or Jenny at meadowssmithusa@yahoo.com and 203 558 1957 if interested in purchasing Cabernet Sauvignon.

Jenny Meadows-Smith writes:
Our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are currently at 23 BRIX. We are forecasting to pick the grapes for the SHW group buy organized by Seth on Saturday, September 2nd (it is possible it will be delayed until Saturday, September 9th as we are targeting to pick at 24.5 BRIX).

We still have a few tons of grapes unsold, so if there are other members looking for Cabernet Sauvignon, please contact Marcus or Jenny.

The grapes are grown under the supervision of Mike Anderson and Nate Kane, who are the respectively the former and current head viticulturalists for UC Davis vineyards in Napa (Oakville) and Davis. They have managed the irrigation, pruning and thinning to produce the highest quality grapes. The grapes will be picked by Servin-Lopez from Napa who pick for many of the famous vineyards in Napa, as well as Marcus and me.

We grow 9 acres of grapes: Cab S, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Chardonnay and Roussanne. Our soils are silt-loam and clay-loam, similar to the soils in the Napa valley floor. We benefit from the delta breeze to ensure we have cool nights, and obviously we get the hot days in Davis, for growing very good grapes for producing fine wines. Andy, Seth and Linda, and several commercial wineries used our Cab S grapes last year.

Saturday is the preferred day for the group buy organized by Seth, but if anyone wants to pick their own grapes then they could pick on a different day. The price is the same picked or self-picked at $1,600 per ton.

Grapes to Trade for Wine

Contact Randy Rich at rrich@kloveair1.com or 505 720-1824.

Randy has 26 vines of cabernet sauvignon and 22 vines of chardonnay in their 3rd leaf. 

He wants to make wine from his vineyard’s fruit but life sometimes gets in the way. Thus, Randy is looking to partner with a winemaker to make wine from his grapes and split the yield 50/50.  He’d also like to occasionally look in on the wine to learn the winemaking process.  The vineyard is in the Morgan Creek/Roseville area.

Please contact Randy directly if interested.
