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.
Vino for breakfast? Don’t mind if we do.
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!
The sun’s out and so are we. Dancing into June over #MercedesRiverblockVineyard on the #MiracleMile with grateful hearts!
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!”
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!
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.
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.”
Today, we’re grateful for our loyal guests like Debra, who share photos and stories of their visits with us here at Gracianna. What are you grateful for today?
