Columbine Vineyards' Claire Caratan Gives Us a Tour of the Company's Exclusive Proprietary Grapes
DELANO, CA - Claire Caratan, part of the fourth generation at Columbine Vineyards, gave us a look behind the greens of those vineyards through her eyes.
“My great grandfather shipped his first harvest of grapes in 1926,” she shares, adding that her family has continued that tradition by producing some of the freshest table grapes in the San Joaquin Valley for almost nine decades.
Columbine Vineyards grows more than 15 varieties of table grapes, available from July through December, including its proprietary varieties like the Black Globe and its exclusive Holiday variety.
“The Holiday is my personal favorite grape,” Claire tells us. “The Holiday eats fantastically; it has delicious flavor, a bright red color, and really crisp texture.”
Available late September through early December, the Holiday is offered in an easy grab n’ go bag, as well as Columbine’s new petite bag.
