Cabernet Franc Grapes!

We are looking for a winemaker to buy our  2019 crop of Cabernet Franc. We’re asking $2000/ton but we are happy to lower the price in exchange for some of the wine.  The grapes are grown organically in the Pine Mountain Cloverdale Peak AVA. Brix was 23 on 9/30. We estimate about 1 – 1.25 tons. You pick and haul. I can help pick if needed.

These are fabulous grapes and the wine we’ve made from them over the years is excellent, but this year we just don’t have time to make wine, as our main business is olive oil and we’re looking at a huge crop this year.
