This year’s organic grape juice has arrived. We just harvested the first grapes of the vintage, crushed, pressed and bottled them as grape juice. Ready for tasting everyone?

Grape juice is always the first batch of a new harvest because the grapes should not be too sweet for it to taste refreshing. So we used this week’s great weather to kick of the harvest. After picking, the grapes were quickly processed and bottled. This has to be done very fast so that the juice does not start fermenting.

Heating during bottling, just like it is done to preserve jam or canned fruit, prevents fermentation and lets the juice stay fresh for a long time.
