About Us

Grapa Varieties is a family business which was founded by a farmer, for the benefit of farmers. Our goal is to create timeless table grape varieties that farmers love to grow and consumers love to eat. Therefore, we are focused on the long-term success of the varieties and on the long-term success of the producers with whom we work. To achieve this, we are dedicated to supplying each and every grower with the support he needs, and to protecting the varieties’ IP Rights through legal means.

Our Story
