Dear Valued Customers,


The 2017 wine making season is here, and we are looking forward to seeing all of you. California had substantial rain this year, which provided plenty of water for irrigation and the State is no longer in a drought, at present. The spring was cool and wet, followed by a hot and humid summer. The large vine canopies provided protection for the grapes, that look very good and will consist of smaller bunches and berries that will enhance wine flavour and quality. The harvest is approximately 10 days later than last year although we are already taking pre-orders. Picking will start the last week of August. As usual, place your orders early, so we can secure your grapes. We expect to start the season by 10th of September, with the first arrival of grapes from Lodi.


Sugar levels are expected to be high; therefore, it will be very important to monitor must temperatures to avoid stuck fermentation. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are in very high demand by the wineries this year. Grenache, Thompson Seedless, Muscat and Carignane are in short supply since many farmers are continuing to replace these varieties with the more popular grapes. If you would like to order our high end grapes from the Amador region and Shenandoah Valley, pre-order them now, the expected date of arrival is between September 22nd and 30th. Again, we are looking forward to seeing all of our customers and lets all enjoy this wine making season.


Pre-orders are also being taken for the Borrelli Premium California Grape Juices, which are made from 100% fresh grapes and can only be ordered at this time of the year. These juices have very high levels of sugar; therefore, we recommend using wine yeast and wine yeast nutrient. This will ensure your wine ferments completely. For the first time, this year, we are introducing 100% Italian Belladoro and Borrelli Grape Juices. Amarone, Lambrusco, Pinot Grigio and many more varieties will be available. We have already made samples of these wines and they are incredible.


Prices will be available the first week of September. If you would like to make wine from these juices, pre-order them now or make them at our on-premise wine making facilities, where we are bringing you the Italian flavours. As always, we will be offering de-stemming and pressing services, on premise, with our world-class machinery. Thank you for your patronage and we look forward to seeing you this year!


Sincerely yours,


Max and Louis Borrelli
