NEW!!! Skip the line- no appointment necessary! Starting December 2nd, 2019, you won’t need to make an appointment or wait in line, to get your hot-packed juice. Our website will allow you to place an order online, pay with a credit card, and pick up at your convenience. Sound great? It is…Simply go to the site, place your order by 10 a.m., and pick up your order between 1 pm – 5 pm the same day. Any order placed after 10 a.m. will be considered for pick-up on our next business day between 1 pm – 5 pm. This will be available every day except Sundays and holidays. Pick-up will be in our retail sales area.
A “Hot-Pack” is a 5-gallon container of juice that is heated and then sealed so that it won’t start to ferment until the seal is broken. They require no refrigeration and transport safely. When you wish to start fermentation, just remove the lid, add yeast and nutrient (included with the purchase), and ferment as usual. They are available year-round and can be purchased at our farm or online anytime for shipping in the U.S by FedEx.
Customers should check the Retail Hot-Pack Prices page or call our info line (716) 673-9463 to confirm the availability of our juices before coming to our salesroom. These will be updated daily. Credit cards, cash, and personal checks will be accepted in our salesroom.
As a reminder, our juices are not pasteurized and are therefore only intended for winemaking, not fresh consumption. We look forward to pouring your juice again this year, and as always, we greatly appreciate your continued patronage.
Grapes will be available for u-pick on opening day.
