Last year we got our grapes from George Fine vine wines / winemakers toy store. As the store is closed I’m trying to figure out how to get grapes here in Texas. I’m not afraid to drive. Can anyone offer suggestions for fresh red grapes in San Antonio?
Thank you kindly!

Call up F Colavita & Sons, you’ll be buying the same exact grapes as FVW, without the middleman markup. I found a nearby winery that they deliver to and got my grapes trucked in refrigerated with theirs. Saved a fair amount of $ as well. Mike is a good dude, their family has been doing this for a long time, they pick, pack, and ship, no middlemen.

Agree with Colavita referral from JohnD. I used them in California and already checked and they can ship about anywhere. Condition and quality of grapes was really nice too.

Knockabout, would like to hear what you learn. I am in Houston and was also driving up to FVW for grapes.

Hi Rick,
I was directed to Colavita grapes, Abby there sent my email to the Nrth Texas Regional Wine Makers group to get in on the order with them. No response from them yet, but it's early still. It's a 10 hour drive for me but if I can make it work....I will.unless another option pops up that is
