The Chile Table Grape season kicks off in Copiapo, region III. The grape growers have big hopes that this season will be a “kinder” year, allowing the grapes to reach the shelves on time, with good quality. Indeed, so far, the season is starting a little bit earlier than usual and growers are focused on producing high quality grapes to offer the best for the consumers.
Guillermo Baez, ARRA agronomist at Grapasa (the territorial representative for the ARRA™ varieties in South America), covers the northern regions of the country. He recently visited the Rio Blanco farms, during ARRA Sweeties™ harvest. Year after year you can see the impressive results reached by Rio Blanco.
The next region to be ready for harvest will be IV, Ovalle and Vicuña. We look forward to bringing you news in upcoming editions.
All of us at Grapasa and Grapa wish the ARRA growers a fruitful season.
The Crush Everyone’s talking about!
Tony Calvillo, Vice President of International Business Development, Dayka & Hackett LLC, shared: “Today, we visited the ARRA Cherry Crush—a grape variety that exceeds the expectations of growers, consumers, and retailers alike. We are thrilled to witness its remarkable potential. Boasting an alluring cherry colour, impressive size, abundant production, and a perfect balance of taste and crunch, ARRA Cherry Crush creates a mutually beneficial scenario for discerning producers, consumers, and retailers.”
Igniting the senses
Just in time for the festive season, the inaugural batch of ARRA Fire Crunch™ made its way from Peru to the USA. Karl Conrads, founder, CEO of Grapasa accompanied the first year vines from budbreak all the way to Walmart facilities in Los Angeles.
Don’t miss the footage, showing this landmark arrival, now the sky’s the limit.
Sharing the passion – Right now in Southern Africa:
“It’s a great, beautiful grape, we are having a great time packing it.” shares Gabriel Viljoen of G.P. Viljoen Farming
We’ve heard other growers excited about this year’s performance.
“The ARRA Passion Fire was probably the most beautiful red grapes around on our farms.”
Start the season with a Kiss
This year, attendees got a firsthand look at ARRA Fire Kiss™ in Egypt. What stood out was how distinctly different it was from the Flame, leaving no doubt that it is the perfect Flame replacement.
