Our carts are designed to have a higher capacity, leaving pickers in the field longer.  With over 116 million boxes of grapes harvested in California last year, and with growers experiencing a savings of $1-$2 per box using the Vinergy cart, our product will have an immediate positive impact on the growers bottom line.
