Description
The wooden grape box is one of the most common and well-used pieces of equipment in a commercial vineyard. This one, marked “Pedroncelli,” was used for harvesting grapes in the vineyards owned by the Pedroncelli family in northern Sonoma County near Geyserville, California, for many years. Wooden grape boxes like this have been largely replaced by plastic picking pans.
