Welcome to the Californian grape season!

The season is now getting started in the San Joaquin Valley. Flames are starting this week, expecting lower volumes than originally estimated. Sugraones are generally clean with a good flavor profile. Ivory should start next week, looking good for shipping overseas by ocean freight.

Although this start seems to be a bit slower, the rest of the season is promising. We hope to maintain or increase the volume of 2021’s shipments, expecting to later intensify the dispatches of the new varieties.

Popular for their exceptional quality, California grapes offer a wide range of varieties: Red Globe, Jack Salute, Great Green, Sweet Globe, Cotton Candy, among others.

To our constant growth in Latin America, we added the increase of our shipments to Asia, with a strong focus on Southeast Asia, and India.
