From ancient, dry-farmed vines in Rancho Cucamonga, 42 miles east of Los Angeles. These own-rooted vines grow in sand in a head-trained style befitting wizards. Tall wizards. And certified organic to boot. Fermentation was 100% de-stemmed, with neutral 500L puncheon aging for 14 moons. Notes of sage, pink peppercorn, rhubarb and sandalwood abound, in the kindest shade of ruby. 12.1% abv.


I am a New Zealand born winemaker who moved to California in 2006 with the dream of making Grenache. In the land from which I stem, the climate is too cool to ripen this sun-loving beauty. And so began my search: northern Spain, southern France, southern Australia, California…

Abundant sunshine and entrepreneurial spirit led me to the latter, and in 2007 I sourced my 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 I sought.

I chose to name my label after two of my favourite things: my Grandmother Grace, and my most beloved attribute. My 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.

To grace and Grace,

Angela Osborne
