Why are grapes so expensive
Last weekend there was an article in the Fresno Bee by Robert Rodriguez titled Days of Wine & Raisins that talked about the increased demand on wine and raisin grapes this year. Weather which affects the overall crop production usually has the ultimate say so when it comes to supply and demand in Ag.
In the past the market for grapes has been poor due too over planting, mother nature or lack of labor, and as a result more growers have pulled out these grapes and planted other commodities which has left a void that so many have come to depend on. However this season with the limited availability some grape growers are actually going to do OK this year.
So with that, lets do our best to enjoy California Grapes either Fermented or Fresh as they can put a smile on your face.
