ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About A Tribute to Grace Santa Barbara County Grenache

A Tribute to Grace Santa Barbara County Grenache was inspired by Fonsalette from Chateau Rayas. The wine represents all of the vineyards Angela works with. The majority comes from the Highlands vineyard at 3200 feet elevation. The rest is divided between the Thompson, Ballard, and Vie Caprice vineyards. 2022 was a perfect growing season for Angela’s favorite varietal. 69% whole-cluster fermentation then aged for 11 months in neutral French barrique & puncheon. Racked once and bottled under an Aries moon. The result is a very pale, Pinot Noir-esque color. Medium-bodied with wild strawberry, black plum, garrigue, violets, and bindi olives, hints of tobacco and cinnamon, elegance and purity, sleek yet supple, seamless, balanced, and ethereal.

About A Tribute to Grace

Angela Osborne, the driving force behind A Tribute To Grace Wine Company, is a passionate winemaker born in New Zealand. Her journey is dedicated to crafting authentic expressions of Grenache, and she has established a unique identity in the world of wine. Having moved to California in 2006, Angela was driven by a dream to create exceptional Grenache wines, a pursuit made challenging by the cooler climate of her homeland. The quest for the perfect terroir took her on a global odyssey, exploring regions from northern Spain and southern France to southern Australia. The abundant sunshine and entrepreneurial spirit of California ultimately beckoned her.

In 2007, Angela sourced her first Grenache fruit from the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard, a high-desert vineyard perched above the Pacific Ocean, 33 miles inland. This vineyard offered the ideal blend of heat and light needed to ripen this sun-loving grape, setting the stage for truly remarkable wines. The label, A Tribute To Grace, was aptly named after two cherished elements: Angela’s beloved Grandmother Grace, and a deeply personal attribute. The winemaking intends to capture the essence of grace itself and remain as closely connected to nature as possible, reflecting the trio of grace in every bottle.

The inspiration for the label design came during a poignant moment on Moonlight Beach, Encinitas, during Angela’s first Thanksgiving in California. While reminiscing about her Nana Grace and the beauty of this American tradition, she etched the word ‘grace’ in the sand with her big toe. Recognizing the significance of this act, she decided to make it her label, paying homage to grace itself. However, thanks to the artistic touch of a dear and talented friend, Nicole Sykes, the label took on a more refined form. The Queen Anne’s Lace motif, inspired by a dried flower found in a Dublin vintage market, was chosen for its symbolism of simplicity, femininity, and the enduring circle of grace. This design has graced each bottle of A Tribute To Grace Wine Company since 2007, adding an extra layer of elegance to Angela Osborne’s heartfelt tribute to her Grandmother Grace and her deep connection to Grenache.
