No, Columbine Vineyards grapes are harvested sustainably without any genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Our integrated and preventative pest control program reduces the need for pesticides in our harvesting practices.
For nearly 100 years, the San Joaquin Valley in California has been home to Columbine Vineyards, where grapes are hand-picked fresh season after season.
Between July and December, Columbine Vineyards delicious hand-picked grapes can be found throughout the United States at various retailers. The availability of each variety differs based on the season, their ripening schedule, and environmental variables.
Our grapes are harvested over a period of weeks, and depending on what is taking place with weather patterns and with insect hatchings during a given time frame within the entire harvest cycle determines what or if we might need to use something on the soil or the vines. No matter what the product is that is necessary to use depending on the weather and the harvest timing for each, all of these products used on the soil and/or the vine are fully approved by the USDA, the EPA and all governing bodies and within the safety limits for all. We only use as little as is necessary.
To maximize the freshness of grapes, always refrigerate for maximum shelf life.
Store unwashed and dry; rinse before serving.
