The Perfect Blend of Sun, Soil and State-of-the-art Facilities


California’s San Joaquin Valley is known internationally as one of the premier grape-growing regions in the world. That reputation is due to pioneering growers like Vincent B. Zaninovich, who settled there in 1919 and discovered the Valley’s perfect grape-growing conditions. The farm Vincent B. Zaninovich and Sons, Inc. (VBZ) is still family owned and operated, carrying on the tradition of growing the highest quality table grape varieties as well as fresh California cherries.


Rich, sandy loam soil. Pure, nutrient-rich water from the Sierra Nevada snowpack. Hot, sunny summers and mild winters. It all comes together to create some of the best-tasting grapes and cherries on the planet.


At VBZ, we maximize this quality with a combination of Old World farming techniques and New World innovation. From our state-of-the-art cold storage facility to our ongoing research and variety development program, VBZ has the technology and know-how to meet the worldwide demand for quality, flavor and value.

Respect for our employees

The art of growing fresh grapes and cherries are very labor intensive tasks. At VBZ we understand and greatly appreciate how hard our employees work to get our fruit from our fields to your shelves and tables. Without the hard work and loyalty of our employees we know that none of what we do would be possible.
