Grape Juice

Post by manjara » Sun Jun 03, 2018 9:55 pm

Does anyone know where you can find grape juice for sale locally? Using Makro is way too expensive, i'd be interested at about half that price (Malee etc)
Do any of the grape farms in the mountains sell it? I'd be looking for fairly large quantities, obviously

Get the right equipment and some yeast and you can make your own wine

It would be against the law but even if caught, the fine is 200 baht. Hardly worth worrying about!

I was all excited to see the responses, but nothing saying where I could get some juice!

I lived in Saudi for 8 years, people enjoy grape juice over there. They sell it by the pallet!
Penalty is a little more than 200 baht for turning it into wine though! They have no appreciation for miracles! :wink:

You can buy grape juice on Alibaba but you have to buy a huge amount.

No, because I don't eat grapes, I prefer the final product: wine.

Pineapples are very cheap at the moment and I believe makes good wine.

In Canada at the correct rime of year, shops in the Little Italy village that exists in all Canadian cities sell grape juice imported from Italy which of course comes in with minimal import duty. I think that 10 gallons is the normal sale.

I guess that the frieght cost to Thailand would be a bit much?

Just a thought. Have you checked the vineyards? At least long time ago they used to sell grape juice. It may not be cheap, though.

I heard that the wineries don’t press their own grapes, so they must get it from somewhere.
Perhaps I need to buy a vineyard! 😂😂
