Castle Rock Vineyards' Laura Berryessa Discusses Grape Season
- by Robert Schaulis
DELANO, CA - California grape season is heating up, and Castle Rock Vineyards' harvest season on several key varieties is off to a booming start—with several key varieties already in-store and a sales-driving staple hitting the shelves later this month.
I recently spoke to Laura Berryessa, Sales Manager, to learn more about the grape grower/packer/shipper’s July.
“We are into our third week of harvest from the Delano area, shipping Sugarones, Flames, Summer Royals to start off the season,” says Laura, who noted that the company will soon begin harvest of a perennially popular signature variety—Sweet Celebration.
Laura tells me that Sweet Celebration harvest will most likely start early this year, offering all the enticing characteristics that customers and end consumers enjoy.
“We are excited to start our Sweet Celebration which looks to start a little early—approximately the last week of July,” continues Laura. “Our customers do very well with this variety, as it has all the components of the best grape—size, full color, and most of all, it eats great! I think at the end of the day regardless what your variety the grape has to eat good; as we always say: It’s All About the Flavor.”
