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
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?
WINE BLOGGER OF THE MONTH: We love our local wine bloggers here in California Wine Country, and we were so happy to have a visit from Ashley, aka @redswineadventure last month. Ashley has the lofty goal of visiting EVERY Winery in Sonoma County, and she’s well on her way with over 100 visits so far. We love following her on Instagram to get ideas for more places to visit in this beautiful part of the world. THANK YOU Ashley for your commitment to our winery and this wonderful business!
We make our wine at an offsite winery, and we spend a lot of time there checking on our wine in the barrels and keeping an eye on the bottling and labeling process. Once it a while we do a little barrel tasting to see how things are coming along.
Lately, we’ve been doing some leafing on our Mercedes Riverblock Pinot Noir vines- our team trims off the leaves and vines on the side that faces the morning sun, to let the light filter through. The leaves are left in place on the side that gets afternoon sun to protect the grapes from the intense heat. It’s all about growing the best possible fruit that requires minimal intervention to make brilliant wine!
Medallion club members @digitalnomadsinlove write: There are wines that we like to drink, and then there are wines that make us fall in love, over and over again. Gracianna is the standard by which I measure any other wine, it simply touches my soul. Today we spent some time with our friends at Gracianna Winery, Trini and Lisa Amador, and their delightful rescue Wine Dog Sadie. They’re recovering from a devastating flood at the Winery, but their joyous, gracious spirits are shining more than ever. So grateful for their hospitality. ❤️🍷❤️
How are you celebrating your Memorial Day weekend? We would love to welcome you to our tasting room on Westside Road in Healdsburg. We’re open from 11am – 5pm all weekend long!
Our 2014 Estate Pinot Noir is in full bloom. Wine Enthusiast Magazine says: “A rustic nose gives way to a touch of clove and Asian spice, as full-bodied, robustly ripe baked plum and cherry generously provide flavor and power on the palate. The spiciness lingers on the finish.”
