Dulcinea® Farms’ Earl McMenamin Discusses Table Grape Program in Exclusive Video
REEDLEY, CA - When you stop and think about it, table grapes with their little red, purple, and green globes closely resemble ornaments on a Christmas tree. And, just like Christmas decorations, consumers can’t wait to break them out and start enjoying. Luckily, Pacific Trellis Fruit, Dulcinea® Farms has premium table grapes to meet retailers’ and shoppers’ needs this season.
“We are in Reedley, California, harvesting the later varieties of table grapes, Allison Red Seedless,” explained Earl McMenamin, Senior Sales Executive. “This is one of the most desired varieties. It is highly desirable for its size, color, and flavor profile.”
With tub pickers out harvesting rows of Dulcinea’s table grapes, buyers can be prepared to receive optimum bunches of grapes recognized for their color, size, and sweetness. According to McMenamin, once the bunches are cut from the vine, Dulcinea packs them in in various styles including RPCs, cartons, clamshells, or styros to meet all retail needs.
To further its ability to cater to its retail partners, Pacific Trellis has announced pivotal expansions within its program.
“It’s been a very exciting year for Pacific Trellis’ California season,” continued Earl. “We’ve expanded with our Dulcinea label Concord grape program. We’ve expanded upon that with our specialty grapes; we’ve had a very successful season with our Dulcinea branded Concord, Dulcinea Champagnes…We’ve also expanded this year with our Dulcinea labeled clamshell programs, which we have some major retailers.”
Currently, Dulcinea is finishing up the harvest of its specialty varieties including Autumn King Green Seedless, one of the last varieties for its California program.
As a recognized and trusted name in the industry, Earl says that you can’t go wrong with the grower as a partner.
“Dulcinea speaks for itself; it has a very well-known reputation in the industry, and we’ve seen very great success with the Dulcinea labeled grapes,” he closes.
