“There is an unprecedented expansion of wine drinkers that can be attributed to what I refer to as the ‘seedless grapes’ movement.  Seedless grapes are a new breed of unpretentious, unapologetic wine drinkers. 

No bias, no disposition, just a progressive palate.”

The gospel according to seedless grapes

Seedless grapes once contained hardened seeds, but genetic alterations now prevent the seeds from forming hard outer coats.  These fruits undergo a series of cutting and rooting processes in order to reach perfection.  The wine drinking “seedless grapes” did not grow up in a home where wine was regularly consumed, kept or discussed.  They have no hereditary connection or family wine cellar to draw knowledge from so when it comes to reds, whites and rosés, they are left up to their own vices. There are many seedless grapes that have no root in wine. They are cuttings who socialize with wine and make wine choices based on their tastes, preferences and referrals. They are women and men of all ages and diverse backgrounds, who appreciate their personal interaction with wine and the accompanying experiences.  They are not quite clones because there is nothing normal or historical about how they drink wine.  The most intriguing thing of all is that they do contain a seed, a connection to wine that is deep down inside and the seed is unhardened, undecided and open to everything that satisfies their tastes.”
