NEW RELEASE! This 2020 vintage of our Articondo is a cuveé of four of the five red wine varietals that we grow on our Estate in Santa Ynez and is a true testament to the classic Bordeaux blend profile. This wine is fondly named after Articondo Grassini, the first member of the Grassini family to emigrate to the United States from Pisa, Italy.
NEW RELEASE! "Equipo" is the Spanish term for "team," and we are fortunate to have had the same team ever since we first planted our vines. As an homage to them, we allocated a portion of our vineyard to our “equipo,” and gave them full control over that section. The crew is entrusted with farming decisions regarding irrigation, fertilization, pest control, pruning and everything else Mother Nature might throw at them! A portion of the profits are given back to the team as a small token of our appreciation for all that they do.
NEW RELEASE! We are thrilled to share our sixth vintage of our much beloved Afiora Rosé. Composed entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon from our estate in Santa Ynez, we have fondly named this wine “Afiora,” as a tribute to Larry Grassini’s great-grandmother, Afiora Grassini. Afiora and her husband, Articondo, were the first members of the Grassini family to leave Pisa, Italy to start a new life in America.
NEW RELEASE! The Happy Canyon AVA is blessed with characteristics of both warm and cool climates. Our AVA is home to the warmest microclimate in the Santa Ynez Valley. Cool nights give way to dense early morning fog, which then lifts to reveal long afternoons full of bright sunshine - the perfect setting for growing some world-class Sauvignon Blanc!
