    Winemaker Notes

    In 2016 A Tribute to Grace took over the entire SBHV block of Grenache known as 'K1', giving them a wondrous 10.2tons to devote to our Rose. They started working with this block in 2013, which is planted to a Grenache clone known for its delicate ruby hue. Farmed to around 5 tons per acre, the density both slows down the ripening curve, and maintains a delightfully low pH - perfect for intentional Rose. The vintage’s dry conditions assert themselves with layers of minerality, and an aromatic energy that envelops both blossom notes (manuka) and stone fruit (nectarine).

    Whole Grenache clusters were gently crushed and left on their skins for 24 hours before being pressed to tank. A long, slow fermentation ensued over 30 days, after which she rested with her gross lees for 3 more moons. Secondary fermentation was halted to keep the wine’s delicate aromatics and crisp acidity.

    This wine was bottled under a Leo moon: February 10th, 2017

    A Tribute to Grace, California
    A Tribute to Grace Besson Vineyard Winery Image

    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. And so began her search: northern Spain, southern France, southern Australia, California...

    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 that was sought. Angela named 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 me encapsulates grace.

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast California wine district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the Central Coast California wine region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few Central Coast reds and whites. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
