AprèsVin Grape Seed Oils for the Holidays



As the holidays quickly approach, for many people it is also time to go gift shopping. Special gifts for those who enjoy cooking include grape seed oils and grape seed flours. AprèsVin, company in the state of Washington, produces unique grape seed oils that are single varietal. At AprèsVin trucks from large wineries deliver the grape pomace keeping the grape varieties separate.

AprèsVin then dries the seeds and extracts the oil from the seeds. The rest is then milled into single varietal flour.

Grape seed oils are made in two styles: un-infused and infused. Single varietal grape seed oils available are Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Apres Vin also produces Classic and Limited Edition grape seed oils. Specialty oils include: Lime Riesling, Chipotle Merlot, Roasted Garlic Chardonnay, Grapefruit Chardonnay, Cajun Chardonnay and others.

Eric Leber and his wife, Lori Ramonas own and operate AprèsVin. They are a creative couple who are friendly and engaging. They have channeled  their creativeness into other uses for grapes including grape seed soaps and Chardonnay vine smoked sea salt. I

A fun fact on the AprèsVin website notes: Did you know that it takes 3,000 pounds of grapes, or approximately half an acre in a vineyard, to yield enough dried seeds (75 pounds) to produce ONE GALLON of AprèsVin’s varietal grape seed oil?  This same half acre of grapes will produce approximately 300 gallons of wine!”

Be sure to check out the AprèsVin website for gift ideas this season.

Cheers, Kathy
