2022 News  



Dear members of the Winegrape Club and fellow wine makers.


The wine making season is once again almost upon us!! Last year we managed to import high quality wine grapes through Cibi food importers and this year we will be doing the same. To avoid disappointment please ensure grape orders are pre-paid and pre-ordered through the website: (use ref: WINEGRAPECLUB). Please note there is a minimum order of TEN 8kg boxes per order.

The good news is that the grapes are in abundance and looking fantastic!!! We will be importing Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet, Montepulciano, Nero di Troia, Malvasia and Trebbiano. Please note that the different varieties ripen at different times therefore it is not possible to mix early and late varieties on the same order.

There are always issues to be resolved with importing fresh produce and this year is no different. There are increased import tariffs and documentation and the risk of delays at the ports. In view of this we will be restricting the number of pallets per lorry whilst at the same time working hard to keep prices as low as possible. Hopefully the same as last year!!

All of the information regarding availability, ordering and pricing can be found on the CiBi website. Please go to

or follow the link below to place your order and write WINEGRAPE CLUB in the comments box.


Looking forward to a classic 2022 vintage, the grapes are looking fantastic and we will keep everyone informed regarding the harvest.


Stay safe and well and make great wine!!!!


Best wishes,


Chris and the team

"The best wines are those that we drink with our friends"...

"Our members enjoy creating their own vintages and wine blends from high quality, imported Mediterranean grapes. The vineyards pick, pack and palletise the grapes to order and three days later they arrive at our warehouse in refrigerated lorries."
