Harvest is close at hand, and our job these days is to study every detail and respond to the cues that Mother Nature delivers to us.
The Amador and Petersen ladies. We are so grateful for how our family pulled together to restore our estate after the floods this year. Now that things are back to normal, it’s a joy to celebrate together!
It’s always fun to hear how people find us! “This winery was something we Googled and found on Yelp. We were so lucky to find it. The family was very warm and welcoming. They even invited us into their home for a walk-through of their beautiful house. The wine was delicious and it was well worth finding. I would look forward to going back again. Amazing story behind why this winery was started. It’s neat to see the family history. The fact that it was named after their grandmother too was really amazing. We were very thankful and blessed to find this quaint, family-owned winery. Looking forward to visiting again!” – Katie
Review of the 2017 Reserve Pinot Noir: The PinotFile calls this wine—made in a limited run of 74 cases—“surprisingly forward for a 2017 release, displaying a deep spiced cherry-flavored core filled out with a bit of toasty oak in the background. Soothing in texture and easy to like. Score: 93.”
Sometimes it is time to kick back and enjoy…sometimes it is time to be serious about wine…. at Gracianna you can have both!
Do you chill your red wine in the summertime?
Julie writes: “We have been Gracianna wine club members almost from their opening… At the time, we joined immediately on our first visit not only because we enjoy the wines (especially the Zins and Pinots), but we love the very sincere welcome and warm hospitality.” — another lovely guest review from some members of our Medallion Wine Club family
