Wine Grapes Presale Reservation: Primitivo

 

Wine grape preorders are accepted from now through August 3, 2018.

 

The red Primitivo grape grows primarily in Italy’s Puglia region, in the heel of Italy’s geographic boot. There, it makes black, fruit-filled, jammy Primitivo wines with low acidity and medium tannins. Recent research indicates that Primitivo, like the very similar Zinfandel grape in California, is a clone of an ancient Croatian grape called Crljenak Kaštelanski.

 

Compared to a Zinfandel, Primitivo wines are generally considered softer with less peppery notes while maintaining bright berry qualities.

 

Broadway Brew Supply obtains Primitivo grapes from a vineyard in Palisade, CO.

 

Broadway Brew Supply sources Primitivo and other classic varieties sometime between mid-September and mid-October depending on growing conditions and numerous other factors.

 

If you are not familiar with making wine from grapes, don’t worry!  We’ll help you through the process by providing a step-by-step checklist when you pick up your grapes.  For more detailed information, check out these great wine making books to add to your library.

 

In general, 50 lbs of wine grapes will make approximately 3 gallons of finished wine, and 100 lbs will make approximately 6 gallons of finished wine.
