Winemaker’s Insight Grignolino is an Italian varietal from the Piedmont region in northern Italy. Our origi-nal Grignolino vines dating back to the 1940’s were grown on The Only One Vine-yardsurrounding our present day Tasting Room. In 1966, cuttings from those vines were planted on 5 acres at our winery property in the hills of St. Helena. The Grigno-lino grape has large berries with many seeds, very thin skin and a light color. We have developed a great affection for Grignolino since we discovered it back in 1959 and are the only producer of a 100% varietal Grignolino in the U.S. The scent of fresh strawberries in the glass is followed by a lively mix of red fruits on the palate. Soaring acidity is sculpted with delicate tannins and a nip of white pepper adds an assertive note to the finish. . Lightly chilled, it is one of our favorite aperitifs, and of course, it is perfect with your favorite Italian meal.
