Limited Edition Organic Wine Grapes Now Available at Fresh Market
Varieties provide an elevated dining experience for customers
GREENSBORO, North Carolina, August 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Starting today, The Fresh Market, Inc. is offering three varieties of wine grapes for an extremely limited time: Organic Carignane, French Colombard and Granache. Although generally cultivated in the regions of Europe where used in wine, these organic grapes are grown in small batches in California, where the arid climates are comparable to the vineyards where they are grown overseas. They typically go into wines commonly used in delicious blends and provide interesting flavor notes when blended with other varietals. The grapes can be pressed, served with charcuterie and cheese boards, or eaten on their own and simply enjoyed for the flavors each specific grape is known for. The Fresh Market plans to sell them out by mid-September, so customers should be on the lookout while they shop!
Organic Carignan grapes
Carignane is a black-skinned grape variety, probably originating from Aragon in North of Spain. The variety is found in wines along the Mediterranean coast, especially in the northeast Spain and in France Languedoc Roussillon region.
Flavor Notes: Light and sweet flavors of red fruits of cranberry and raspberry. A recommended cheese to pair with this varietal would be one of our Beehive Cheddars.
Organic French Colombard grapes
The French Colombard grape variety originates from France Chenin Blanc and Gouais Blanc grape varieties. Columbard grapes are among the white grape varieties authorized in Bordeaux grape varieties.
Flavor Notes: Fresh, floral flavors with crisp acidity and hints of guava. We recommend one of our ranges of fresh to aged goat’s cheese.
Organic Grenache grapes
Grenache grapes probably originated in Aragon in North of Spain and are one of the most popular grape varieties in wine production.
Flavor profile: Spicy flavors of red fruits of raspberry and strawberry with subtle notes of white pepper. We recommend our Marieke Honey Clover Gouda or a good Gruyère.
