It’s All About the Grape!

We Love Our Raisins…

From the moment our grapes are touched by the sun, they begin their journey to becoming the best tasting raisins in the world. First, we keep them on the vine until they reach the peak of flavor. Then we pickĀ  and sort them, choosing only clusters filled with plump and blemish-free grapes. After sorting, we carefully dry each variety until they reach that perfect combination of texture and taste. Along the way to packaging, we continue to remove any raisins that don’t meet our standard of perfection. By the time they tumble into their packages, they are truly the best of the best.

 

Alborz Raisins

A red grape that is round, plump and juicy. Grown in Oregon, these grapes are harvested in mid to late September. As a raisin, they turn deep red and are meaty with a hint of cherry flavor. We love this raisin a lot and it’s flavor is the perfect compliment to our holiday cinnamon & spice blend.

 

Emerald Raisins

The Emerald is a large yellow-green grape that is juicy and sweet. Our Emeralds grow in eastern Oregon, in the Snake River Valley. They are harvested in mid September. As a raisin, they turn a honey gold color and have a sweet, orange-citrus flavor. This raisin is a favorite for those who like to bite into a sweet treat with a tangy twist.

Glenora Raisins

Ah! The beautiful Glenora. This grape is big, purple and mild in flavor. Like the Emerald, our Glenora grapes are grown in eastern Oregon, in the Snake River Valley. They are harvested in mid to late September. As a raisin, they turn a very dark, deep purple and many keep that beautiful silver sheen. These raisins are a favorite of those who aren’t huge traditional raisin fans. They are chewy, less sweet with a mild flavor, and finish off with a hint of caramel.

Jupiter Raisins

And then there’s our beloved Jupiter! This is the grape that became the raisin that started it all. Our Jupiter grapes are grown in the Yamhill Valley of Oregon, just outside the small town of Yamhill. When ready to be picked in mid October, they are a deep purple. We wait to pick them for as long as possible to bring out their unique “Jupiter” flavor. As a raisin, they are almost black in color and very chewy. They are a favorite of kids who like their chewy candy texture and that burst of flavor that makes your mouth sing!
