Tabletop Grapes: Clusters Muscatel 250g : Irymble, VIC, Australia.
The Tabletop Grapes journey began, when Gino and Elina Garreffa followed their passion to be on the land, both leaving their professional positions to pursue full time work in agriculture. In 1972, they bought their first property in Mildura, in far north west Victoria, known for its abundant sunshine, rich red loam soil and irrigated water from the Murray River. Wanting dried fruit that was rich in its true, natural flavour, the family developed a unique method that produces exactly that, a premium tasting product that is 100% chemical free dried and delicious; GMO free, no preservatives, no sulfur, no added sugar, no added oils. The Muscatel Clusters is a seeded variety and the result of their passion to produce a truly unique flavour in its natural form. Enjoy along side cheese and wine.
