Wine grapes are the main ingredients used in the production of the best wines available at Delices and Gourmandises

There are two types of grapes which are wine grapes and table grapes. These two types of grapes, furthermore, encompass about forty different kinds of grape varieties.

Table grapes are those intended for consumption while fresh. Those are the much larger size grapes you find at your table during dessert. On the other hand, wine grapes are used by wine producers to make wine. They are of smaller size and could be harvested at different stage of the grapes ripening. However, the harvesting period always starts at the beginning of the fruit’s ripening.
