Heitz Cellar 2016 Grignolino, Napa Valley, California, USA

We love this wine with a slight chill! 25 minutues in the fridge and you're good to go! This is the true cult classic of Heitz Cellars!

Family owned since its founding in 1961, Heitz Cellar’s legacy  runs as deep as the roots throughout the Napa Valley; a winery legend  that has helped shape the history of Napa Valley winemaking. In the late 1950’s, pioneering vintner Joe Heitz ushered in Napa’s modern era with  his iconic, globally celebrated wines, including Napa Valley’s first  vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon, the renowned Heitz Cellar  Martha’s Vineyard. Fifty-eight years of the Heitz family’s dedication to  viticulture, stewardship, and classic winemaking, maintained the  winery’s notoriety as a benchmark amongst its peers in California and  Europe. 

In April, 2018, Heitz Cellar entered an exciting new chapter as this  rich legacy was passed into the hands of the Lawrence family, whose deep  roots in agriculture and commitment to the same core values of fine  winemaking made it a perfect match. The wines are made with an  unwavering commitment to quality from organically farmed, 100% Napa  Valley fruit, and a commitment to the sustainability of Napa Valley.
 

Winemaker: Brittany Sherwood

Farming: CCOF Organic with biodynamic practices

Varieties:  Grignolino. Grignolino is an Italian varietal from the Piedmont region in northern Italy. Our origoriginali-nal Grignolino vines dating back to the 1940’s were grown on “The Only One Vineyard” surrounding Heitz's present-day Tasting Room. In 1966, cuttings from those vines were planted on 5 acres at our winery property in the hills of St. Helena. The Grignolino grape has large berries with many seeds, very thin skin, and a light color. Heitz has developed a great affection for Grignolino since they discovered it back in 1959 and are the only producer of a 100% varietal Grignolino in the U.S!
