After opening our first winery only 12 months prior (Nova Cellars Winery) we had the idea for the Fractured Grape. The idea came to us when driving back from a visit to some of the wineries in the Northeast region of Pennsylvania. My wife and I were talking about how the main winery was my endeavor and she wanted one that was more directed at her interests. We wanted to start a business with the fundamental premise of giving back and helping others, with that we came up with a medical themed winery. Although we had the idea, now we just needed the building. We started looking and we found the perfect location in the town we live in, New Wilmington. You would think the hardest part of starting a new business would be either finding a location or getting the correct permits, but actually the hardest part for us was determining a name for the winery. It took us about 6 months to find the perfect name that would tie in wine and medicine.
The fundamental operating principles of the Fractured Grape is to give back and donate. Everything we sell will support national or local charities and organizations. From Heart Disease to Cancer to all local charities we will set aside profits from all bottles and glasses of wine sold. Also each wine is named and linked to the charity or cause that is associated with. For more information you can visit the OUR WINES page. We have also come up with our mission statement which is on our main page that we have called "Operation Grape: Drink for the cure!". We hope you stop by to see us soon and thanks for supporting the cause with us!.
