Sour Patch Grapes are my new go to for my sour candy fix! With only two ingredients, these candied grapes come together in seconds and taste like you threw deliciously tart green grapes into the machines at the Sour Patch Candy factory!
Sterling Vineyards in Napa Valley (Calistoga) allows you to stomp grapes with your feet and then create a t-shirt with your wine footprints as a fun memento.
