Just in case you haven’t heard, pomegranates are pretty amazing. So here is a tasty tidbit on the pomegranates we use for our own pomegranate wines!
* We use the Wonderful variety of pomegranates in our wine.
*The “Wonderful” variety of pomegranates originated in Florida and were first propagated in California in 1896.
*These pomegranates are large, deep purple-red fruit. The rind is medium thick and tough. The flesh is deep crimson in color, juicy and full of a delicious vinous flavor.
*In California commercial pomegranate cultivation is centered in the southern San Joaquin Valley. Wonderful Pomegranates are the leading commercial variety in California.
*Madera (where we are from) is known as the “Heart of Pomegranate Country.”
