Grenache

Known as Grenache, or Garnacha (in Spain), this hot-climate grape vine can produce high-intensity, high-alcohol, flavorful medium-bodied red wines. Thinner skinned and low in tannin, Grenache is staple grape for not only producing red wine, but also Rosé. Ever hear of a “GSM” blend? Grenache, while lovely on its own, is a great partner to blend with Syrah, it’s bigger and bolder friend, as well as Mourvèdre. Mostly grown throughout Spain and in Southern France, particularly the Southern Rhône, Grenache is becoming increasingly popular in other hotter-climate regions. A go-to glass of wine for the end of a long work day!

Central Coast, California

When we speak of Central Coast, CA were including numerous diverse regions from Santa Cruz down through Santa Barbara counties. This encompasses smaller areas such as Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, Monterey AVA, Paso Robles AVA, Santa Maria Valley AVA, Santa Ynez Valley AVA, and Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The Central Coast is responsible for many great value wines from a multitude of grape varietals depending on the climate within the specific designated areas. From the coastal AVA’s with influence from the fog and cooling effects, you will find Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The inland AVA’s are much warmer, like Paso Robles, so look here for outstanding Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel, or Rhône-style blends.

A Tribute to Grace, named after winemaker Angela Osborne’s grandmother. Angela studied film in her native New Zealand and worked at a wine shop to pay the bills. Angela was ready to pursue her film career when a winemaker friend found her a harvest job and insisted that she move to California to take it. Once there, she discovered Grenache and fell hard for the grape that would later become the singular focus of her winemaking. Jon Boone named her “winemaker to watch.”
