About A Tribute to Grace Vie Caprice Vineyard Grenache 1.5L

This delightful haven of Grenache in Santa Ynez totals just 1.94 acres of vines. Planted in 2008 entirely to the Alban clone Grenache, the property serves as a weekend retreat to friends Leif & Kimmy Hertzog, and Whit Latimer and has held a proud place in the Grace stable since the 2014 vintage. 87 gently sloping rows canvas the classic Santa Ynez fine sandy loam, and encourage many layers of expression to shine. This planting manages to balance power and grace thanks to the tight density. Angela’s winery took over the farming in 2021, and are delighted to count Chris King and Francisco Ramirez amongst their viticultural gurus. 2021 sees an increase in whole cluster percentages as we continue to harness the tannin structure the Alban clone is famous for.

About A Tribute to Grace

Angela Osborne is a New Zealand-born winemaker who moved to California in 2006 with the dream of making Grenache. In New Zealand, the climate is too cool to ripen this sun-loving beauty. And so began Angela’s search: northern Spain, southern France, southern Australia, California…

Abundant sunshine and entrepreneurial spirit led her to the latter, and in 2007 Angela 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.

She chose to name her label after two of her favorite things: her Grandmother Grace, and her most beloved attribute. Angela’s winemaking intention is to capture this spirit and stay as close to nature as humanly possible. The trio is completed by the grape itself, which to Angela encapsulates grace.

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.
