Grower story

Lepe

Chile

Specializing in Thompson seedless grapes, Esteban Lepe and his ancestors have tended a 250-acre vineyard known as las Casas de Curimón since the mid-1800s. “Over the years we have learned that we need two things to produce the best Chilean grapes: exceptional land, with the best soil and climate, and the right people to tend it,” said Esteban, “and fortunately, we have both. Customers are seeking firm, crisp, excellent-tasting, large-sized fruit in good quality. Our grapes meet all of those standards, and more.”

As a result, Lepe grapes are known as the best late-season Thompsons in the industry.
