A Tribute To Grace Wine Company is dedicated to crafting authentic expressions of Grenache. All wines are single-vineyard sourced to maintain authenticity, and remain 100% Grenache. Angela Osborne is a New Zealand born winemaker who moved to California in 2006 with the dream of making Grenache. In the land from which she stems, the climate is too cool to ripen this sun-loving beauty. Abundant sunshine and entrepreneurial spirit led Angela to the latter, and in 2007 she sourced her first Grenache fruit from the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard. Nestled high above the Pacific Ocean and 33 miles inland, this high-desert vineyard provided the perfect balance of heat and light she sought. Angela chose to name her label after two of her favorite things: her Grandmother Grace, and her most beloved attribute. The winemaking intention is to capture this spirit, and stay as close to nature as humanly possible. In 2018, she had the opportunity to work with some of the oldest Grenache Blanc vines in the valley, from Thompson Vineyard in Los Alamos. Harvested on the earlier side, to capture the jasmine and bitter almond paradigm that can lift this variety into the sublime. Fermented in a combination of neutral French and stainless steel barrels, the wine remained on gross lees throughout the 16 months élevage, and was bottled under the new moon of December, 2019. Lemon curd, white flower and flint.
