Wine Making Supplies and Grapes

PaPa Desiderio

In the early days of the business, "PaPa" James Desiderio took great pride in selling California wine grapes. He maintained that to be a successfully well-rounded business, it was important to fulfill the needs of all the customers - big or small.

Wine making KitThe traditional wine grape is sold as it was years ago in the bulk form, but because of changing times, we also handle 6-gallon pails of juice in all varieties too. Winemaking supplies, as well as Oak barrels and glass demijohns are stocked so as to accommodate the most demanding wine maker.
