Calling all wine makers

By Contributor
September 14th, 2023

Fall is here again and with it comes the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables.  It is also a time of great anticipation for winemakers as they patiently await the arrival of this year’s harvest.

Anyone who savours sharing a nice glass of wine during a meal with family and friends and are interested in making your own wine, then the Nelson Italian Canadian Society can help you source out wine grapes and juice from California.

During the past three years this annual community fundraiser has brought a semi trailer full of grapes and juice from California directly to Nelson for distribution to winemakers stretching from Grand Forks to Cranbrook.

Proceeds from this event have gone back into the community to support a variety of local causes.

Orders of wine grapes and wine juice will be taken on a first come first served basis.  Don’t miss out!

Those interested in placing an order, please provide the following information:

  • Name & phone number
  • What you wish to order:  GRAPES, JUICE or BOTH
  • How many cases of grapes or pails/barrels of juice
  • What varieties you would like to order

For more details, or to place an order, contact the Nelson Italian Canadian Society via email at or phone Paul at 250-505-6482.
