2018 Grenache

Santa Barbara, CA

    A Tribute to Grace

  • What we love

    New Zealand born winemaker, Angela Osborne sources Grenache from some of the most unique sites along California’s Central Coast and the Sierra Foothills. This is an extremely smooth, mellow, complex and interesting wine. From the first whiff of cedar and cinnamon in the aroma, to intricate flavors of raspberry, black tea and clove, it brings a lot of nuances to the palate and wraps them in a soft blanket of mild acidity and light tannins.

About this Wine

Sourced from five biodynamically farmed vineyards, including the Highlands Vineyard which is bottled as a single-vineyard wine separately, this is a beautiful introduction to Angela Osborne's winemaking. The wine is balanced between ripe fruit and those hallmark savory herb characteristics which make Grenache wines famous in France and South Australia, while the neutral oak aging lends a softness without overt flavor influence.

Angela Osborne

Proprietor + Winemaker


Angela Osborne may be California's biggest champion of Grenache. What's more, she has redefined what the grape is capable of in Santa Barbara—lithe, ethereal, and aromatic rather than rich, robust and dark. This finesse has led to many accolades for Angela, most notably as one of the 2015 San Francisco Chronicle's "Winemakers to Watch."

Angela Osborne moved to California in 2006, with the dream of making Grenache. Originally from New Zealand, where the climate is believed too cool for the varietal, she chose the abundant sunshine of Santa Barbara County to make her graceful wines. Named after her Grandmother, A Tribute to Grace Wine Company was founded in 2007 and is based in Los Alamos, CA.
