Grapes are harvested at the coolest time of the day, which helps to keep the fruit as cool as possible. The grape clusters are hand-selected by our trained pickers from the pre-selected farms to assure quality and traceability. Grapes are collected and stored in a shaded area until transferred to a centralized fruit packing center where Grape clusters are trimmed to remove damaged and non-uniform berries while trying to retain a natural shape to the bunch. Grapes are packed in either plastic bags or clamshells that allow protection as well as airflow. The packs are then placed in a line for pre-cooling before dispatching to the port while maintaining the cold supply chain.
