OUR ROOTS

WE'RE A WILD BUNCH

Everyone has that one friend that is overly passionate about their work. That’s us, the crazy grape family! We're a multi-generational family that purchased our first vineyard over 30 years ago in the gorgeous Central Valley region of California. Since then, our grapes are our life and we aren’t afraid to shout it to the world!

We began planting Selma Pete vine-dried grapes for better agricultural sustainability, only to find this grape changed our view on snacking. We loved the sweet and juicy taste. Once we realized how delicious these grapes were, we started handing them out to all of our friends. After they tried them, it wasn’t long before those hands were coming back for more, more, and more!

We know good food comes from family farms, not factories. That’s why we grow, process, and package all our own grapes, so our friends and fans can have a flavorful and healthful snack. There’s nothing in our vine-dried grapes we’re not proud of!

We've shared our passion with our family and friends and have finally decided to share it with the world!

 

We are so excited to introduce LIFE’S GRAPE!

BASIA GILLESPIE

MOTHER, FOUNDER & CEO

I graduated college with a Business degree and followed that up with a MBA thinking I was going to be a hotshot in a big city. Little did I know that my husband and I would become accidental farmers! We found a love in agriculture and continue to nurture that to this day. I am excited to share Life’s Grape with you. Go ahead and taste the vine-dried difference! You will be glad you did.

When I am in the mood for something a little more decadent than the Classics, I am Team Dark Chocolate.

Fun Fact: In 2002, I was a participant on the local television show, Reno Survivor. If you can find it, let me know and I’ll send you some free product!

DAUGHTER, PRESIDENT, COO

Grapes are in my blood, well not literally of course! I found my passion for grapes at a young age. Taking this passion to the next level, I studied Viticulture (grape growing) in college and just like that began living the grape life whole-heartedly. I am on a mission to bring a little smile to your face when you enjoy a vine-dried grape knowing it was grown with lots of love!

I have always been a huge fan of sweet and salty so I am definitely on Team Peanut Butter!

Fun fact: The love of my life is my 108lb fur baby named Truckee. He’s the most handsome and goobery German Shepherd in the world!
