Gracianna Winery Opens Doors to Tasting Room, Unveils World’s First Vineyard That Wears ‘Jewels’

July 26, 2012

HEALDSBURG, Calif., July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Gracianna Winery delightedly announces that it has opened its long-anticipated tasting room on the lauded Miracle Mile on Westside Road in Healdsburg. It will be one more facet of the Amador family’s dream to share warmth, graciousness, gratitude and its award-winning wines with Sonoma County. It will offer some one-of-a-kind features found in no other winery in the world.

One highlight of the tasting room will be its Mercedes Riverblock vineyard, where the vines “wear” medallions featuring the names of the Amador family and friends and Medallion Wine Club(TM) members. The Medallion program will be part of the offerings of the Gracianna wine club, which also launched with the opening of the tasting room.

Another interesting feature will be the entrance to the tasting room, punctuated by a larger than life sculpture of the trademark “gift” logo. This will be a landmark for visitors to spot the tasting room at 6914 Westside Road.

The intimate, welcoming and uniquely decorated tasting room will complement what Gracianna stands for — wines “for those who have something to be grateful for.”

“By opening our new by-appointment tasting room, our family can realize our long-held dream of being able to host customers, fans, friends, family, and members of the local wine community,” says Ashley Amador, partner.

Visitors will be able to taste an award-winning line up of wines, dating back to 2008, as well as learn first hand about the history behind the Amador family and their Basque matriarch Gracianna Lasaga (for whom the brand was named) — how their roots helped plant the seeds for the success that modern day descendants have enjoyed in making brilliant, fruit-forward wines for the world to enjoy.

Gracianna’s winemaker is 27-year-old Trini Amador IV, one of nation’s the youngest up-and-coming winemakers. The business is run by Trini’s sister, Ashley, and their parents, Trini III and Lisa, are also involved in the winery.

Ashley says, “People always ask, ‘What does the gift on the label mean?’ It represents the ‘gift of giving’ and being thankful for the gifts we are given. We are thankful for our friends and our fans — they have helped us achieve our success and are always rooting for our future.”
