          2007 Wine Grape Seller List for Winemakers.

Return to News List

Our goal is to list grape sellers that are willing to sell small quantities of grapes, usually as low as 100 lbs, to winemakers.   This does not mean the grape sellers won't sell large amounts.  Generally speaking, larger quantities may yield a better price. The quality and/or growing region of the grapes will have a large influence on the price.  We try to list vineyards as close as possible to the San Jose bay area.  
Please let us know by e-mail if you find any information incorrect or obsolete.  It is free to be listed and we are not recommending or endorsing growers on this list, however many of them have been selling grapes to our customers for a number of years.  We will remove a grower from the list if we receive legitimate complaints regarding grape quality or other issues.

Fermentation Solutions is not responsible beyond providing this list of grape sellers. A listing here is not an endorsement. You must determine whether the quality, price and availability of these grapes meets your needs. Some vineyards pick the grapes, crush and press for you and many don't.  Be prepared by knowing what needs to be done by you and what equipment and supplies you will need.  Plan to have at least yeast, sulfite, containers and a crusher or press, if necessary, before picking up your grapes or juice.  
For last year's sellers go to 2006 Wine Sellers List.

For winemaking equipment and supplies please visit our retail store or contact us at (408) 871-1400.  If you do not want to buy grapes we sell the Winexpert Selection brand of juice kits all year.
