Grape juice is a product born around the year 2000, when many industrial companies, to solve the problem of surplusses, began to bottle fresh must, obtained from the pressing of the grapes. The aim was not to waste the grapes in excess which couldn’t be transformed into DOC and DOCG wines.
In 2012 – 2013, some farmers started to produce grape juice and sell it to restaurants and wine-bars. In this way, the juice gained a new positive image: a healthy beverage that even children can drink.
