Grape juice and a glass full of memories

There are some beautiful grapes on sale at the Dragicevich Orchard in Oratia, those old fashion grapes that really smell and taste like grapes (not like the stuff that you find in supermarkets). And they make a wonderful juice. Apparently grape juice has antioxidant effects, well, this would be a bonus, but the only thing that I can say so far is that it is delicious, and the aroma brings back happy childhood memories of picking grapes at my Grandma's in Italy. Yes, memories in a small glass! Have you ever had a similar experience with food and drinks?

  1. I recently found grapes that tasted like the ones from my childhood. I bought a couple of kilos because they were so good!

  2. Having only ever had grapes from supermarkets, I am quite jealous right now :(

  3. Lucy, you need to come to West Auckland to find some :-)
