    We have been getting grapes from Consumer produce for many years but prices are getting ridiculous. Has anyone got grapes from sunfresh? they use Regina and was wondering how they compared to Colavita and Lanza grapes.
    Thank you in advance for any input
    Cheers,
    Jim

    Grape prices have been going up every year. For reds quality grapes are in the mid $50's and with others in the $40-$50 range. Most whites are around $40. What are you seeing?

    I looked at CFP yesterday and they are around $60 per pail. They are closer to me but I guess I will drive up to the Luva Bella winery where I had been getting my juice. Still on the $50s there. Joe

    I've placed an order with them. Do they provide any numbers like pH and total acids or do I have to check these myself?

    Never ordered from CFP. I did use Luva Bella and never got any numbers there. Joe

    If you ask them they will tell you that everything has been pre-balanced and you shouldn’t have to adjust anything.
