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 […]
Pretty Lady Vineyards Announces Fall Line-up—you won’t believe what happens next!
Did I get your attention with that snazzy headline? Probably…um…no. The only thing more tired and out of date than the term “snazzy” is a clickbait headline. Also tired and out of date? The omnipresent social media quiz. Which Harry Potter character are you? Which Disney princess are you? If you were a Tupperware bowl, […]

It’s Back-to-Schome Season!
For the full effect, read the following à la Friends’ Chandler Bing: Could this Back-to-School season BE any more bonkers? And, at this point, would it even be that strange if Mr. Chandler Bing himself strolled into your living room and uttered the above statement himself? Isn’t that what 2020 has been all about—completely weird […]
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, […]

Great Glacial Grapes
Sometimes it feels like being part of a cool-kids club that’s in on the latest secret… “Sure, everyone loves them, but have you tried them frozen,” you whisper to your aunt/friend/neighbor/Zoom meeting host. Every summer the simple, yet somehow still exclusive, hot (ice cold?) tip gets passed around, and anyone who follows it is instantly […]
Pretty Wide Variety
We all have a favorite variety of grapes…right? Whether it’s green, red or black, (or maybe even all 3) one variety is always the go-to and preference. From the tartness of the green grapes, to the sheer sweetness of the red grapes, something about these little berries makes them such an enjoyable snack. But did […]

California Grapes (The BEST Grapes in the world. According to us at the VERY least)
Californians have been cultivating grapes for almost 200 years. That might seem like a long time, especially to those of us who, every so often, might feel like even certain work weeks take forever and a day (😂). But in the grand scheme of things, our state is actually fairly new to the grape-growing business. […]

The Twelve Grapes of Luck (Las doce uvas de la suerte)
At Pretty Lady Vineyards, we find great joy, luck, and prosperity come from working with grapes throughout the year. But there’s an old Spanish tradition that insists grapes and luck truly go hand in hand: right at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve. The tradition has been around since the turn of the […]
