Sun is out, chardonnay is on ice. Who’s coming out to see us this weekend?
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. ❤️????❤️
My husband and I visited Gracianna and fell in love with it. The wine is delicious, the tasting room is beautiful, the staff is very knowledgeable and are very friendly and great conversationalists. The owners could not be any more welcoming too!”
Gracianna lives their brand by expressing gratitude to their wine club members. Lisa and Trini Amador opened their home and treated us to a lovely afternoon of wine, food, and community. Love these guys and their wine. Highly recommended!”
We hope you’ll come by our Tasting Room this weekend for a splash of our 2016 Gracianna Sauvignon Blanc
Our third sauvignon blanc continues in the tradition of the previous vintages in delivering a refreshing, flavorful wine that is a Gracianna guest favorite. Our first wine using grapes from the neighboring Dry Creek Valley AVA, this beautiful fruit is from Hopkins Ranch on Eastside Road. It is an easy to drink wine that’s chock full of citrus flavor and fruit, sure to quench your thirst on any wine country afternoon. Dry and good acid balance the round notes and floral aromatics of this Russian River Valley classic. This wine is stainless steel fermented and neutral barrel aged.
A room with a view of the vines. Our luxurious loft atop the Gracianna tasting room is available for you on Airbnb. You can walk to the edge of the Russian River in one minute and have coffee on the big deck at the back of the vineyard in the morning fog. Wake up to a view of our beloved Riverblock Pinot Noir vineyard on the Miracle Mile of Westside Road.
Have you ever had one of those lovely days where it seems the universe is just taking care of you? Yeah, me too. And the universe sent me to Gracianna. My friend and I walked in and we were instantly stuck with how beautiful the scenery was. Upon walking into the open air tasting room, there’s a beautiful view and seating area. THEN you meet Trini and family and team and you’re further struck by their kindness and their love for family and what they do. AND THEN you taste their wines. My goodness. Loved every one (but really cannot wait to open up the Estate Pinot). I couldn’t begin to tell you how many wineries and tasting rooms I’ve visited, but I can say that this one filled me absolute joy and I was grateful to experience their excitement for what they do and for taking care of their customers. Also grateful to now be a club member at this new favorite spot of mine.”
We’ll be uncorking some magnums of our glorious 2017 Estate Pinot Noir for a Mother’s Day celebration this weekend. Have you chosen something special to do for your Mom on Mother’s Day?
