I just noticed tonight they have a Paso Robles category under the California grapes choice. Look cheap compared to the Washington State offerings.They're not cheap, but it is exciting nonetheless.
Understood. These are better quality grapes, similar to some of the nicer stuff you can get your hands on from Brehm and Musto, those must pails of Cab / PS sell for $200 and up, way up. Roughly three lugs to two pails, so 1.5 lugs per pail, you're already over $75 for a lug. Add $20 per pail for insulated packing, $35 per pail for shipping, it drives the price up. It's worth the money, for me, to buy the better grapes, if I had a short drive for great quality grapes, even at $2 a pound, I'd be saving a fortune in my winemaking.But the prices are double so the Cabernet is $77 for a 36lb lug.
Wow, that makes for a bit of a madhouse, doesn't it?
