Food and Vine, Inc. is a successful grapeseed oil company that has come with an almost irresistible offer for wineries. They are happy to sell special presses which can turn grapeseeds in to ‘liquid gold’. So it’s no longer necessary (or smart) to dump the precious seeds into compost heaps.
One ton of grapes can offer 3 liters of grapeseed oil. This explaines why the steep price: some $30 for 200 ml of oil. The very healthy product can be used in salads or for cooking, but it can also be used for home-made facial masks and other natural treatments, as it is a great anti-aging product.
