Name That Grape

When it comes to Pretty Lady grapes, there’s much more to it than the simple question of “red” or “green.” Our grapes are multifaceted, nuanced, subtle, and surprising—in both appearance and flavor. Since grape season is just about in full swing, you’ll be getting more and more questions about your selection: flavor profile, availability, maybe […]

Can’t you just taste them? It’s what summer is all about. And, of course, Pretty Lady grapes are delicious all on their own—crisp and cool and fresh […]

Gimme Some Sugar

Drops, that is. It’s that time of year…the weather gets warmer, the sun shines brighter, the birds get chirpier, and green-grape loyalists start pining for their beloved Sugar Drops. This variety has steadily increased in popularity over the years, and it’s no wonder: with their plump size and succulent sweetness, Sugar Drops may have cracked […]

Grapes: The Fruits of Our Labor

Here at Pretty Lady Vineyards, we don’t just grow grapes, we eat, sleep, and breathe them. Why? Because Pretty Lady grapes aren’t just our business, they’re a symbol of the integrity our family has been bringing to the grape industry since 1955. Peter and Nick are the sons of company founder Jakov P. Dulcich, and […]

Great Late Grapes

Now say that ten times fast! Luckily, mastery of tongue-twisters isn’t necessary to enjoy Pretty Lady’s late-season grapes. They’re all delicious, but we’re particularly excited about this year’s Green Emeralds. They have a fantastic shelf life and are. Absolutely. Huge. We love them fresh and rinsed and unadorned, but they are amazing in recipes as […]

September to early October is the perfect timeframe to start adding fall flavors into your refreshing, icy drinks. And if […]

Ho, boy! It’s Hobgoblin time!

Our Hobgoblin-branded merchandise boxes and cartons are natural superstars (or, for this time of year, “supernatural stars”) of the Halloween aisle, but a little birdie (in a bat costume) told us that these autumnal displays add a distinct fall flair to produce sections all season long. Healthy Halloween options that are actually fun and actually […]

Un-boring Your Brown Bag!

It may not feel like fall, but fall is, I assure you, bearing down on us like a pumpkin-spice-latte-bedecked freight train. Visions of PB&Js and baby carrots are dancing through our heads as we try to unlock the secret formula that will keep our crafty kiddos from dropping a half-eaten lunch into the wastebasket. Fruit […]

I wish they all could be California…

graaaaaappeeesss! With apologies to The Beach Boys, we think this sentiment couldn’t be more true. California is technically a newb when it comes to grape cultivation, because the Golden State has been in the biz for “only” 200 years (a mere fraction of the 8,000 years the human race has been growing grapes). So how […]

Get ready, get set…

Grape! I mean, almost. We’re not quite there yet, but we only have mere metaphorical minutes before grape season is upon us; so it’s time to dust off the ol’ green (or red, or black) textbook and prep the produce section for summer’s most poppable treat. You’re a busy grocer, and we’re busy grape-ists, so […]

The grapes are coming! The grapes are coming!

Okay, so maybe there won’t be a Paul Revere-esque horseman riding through the streets heralding the coming of Pretty Lady grape season, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared. Start thinking bountiful fruit salad, frozen “grape-sicles,” and refreshing smoothies now so you’ll be all set to purchase and pop ’em in your mouth when […]

Even Better Than That Flying Nanny

As Mary Poppins somewhat boldly announces, she’s practically perfect in every way. Well, Pretty Lady grapes are entirely perfect in every way. Don’t believe us? Well, then, you’ve just admitted to never having tried one! We recommend you rectify that travesty toot sweet! (Tout suite if you’re fancy…or simply French.) But, if you’re one of […]

Harvest Hobgoblins are so good, it’s scary.

It’s time to celebrate the spookiest time of year, Dulcich-style, because Harvest Hobgoblins have arrived. Delicious, crisp, and wrapped in the coolest, hobgobliniest packaging you ever did see, Hobgoblins are crisp, juicy, and a perfect antidote to fall’s resident Big Man on Campus, the ever unsubtle Mr. Pumpkin Spice. Hobgoblins come in red, green, and […]

A Bunch of Grape Reasons to Eat a Bunch of Grapes

This is kind of silly, right? We’re about to give you a “bunch” of reasons why grapes should be a recurring character in the sitcom that is any modern household kitchen. It’s like we’re actually absurd enough to think you need to be convinced to eat these naturally sweet treats by the handful. We don’t, […]
