Columbine Vineyards Grape Breeding Program – Dedicated to Deliciousness

Columbine Vineyards has been actively involved in a table grape-breeding program since 1981.  The program’s objective is to breed new and unique table grape varieties with an emphasis on seedless varieties of exceptional eating quality. The program began as a partnership between Columbine and grape breeder Dr. Angelino Gargiulo.
