Grignolino

Indigenous to Italy’s Piedmont region, Grignolino is only a minor grape in its homeland, where it makes light red wines with characteristic herbaceous and floral aromas. Less than 50 acres of Grignolino exist in California, where only a small number of wineries utilize this variety. In the Golden State, the most recognized Grignolino is the rosé, long made by Heitz Wine Cellars.


Your a delicate old gal; some might
even say you're a little frail. Your
pale appearance is deceptive, since
your personality is so sharp and
engaging. You are full of youthful
vitality; it's been a pleasure to
make your acquaintance at the Heitz
Cellar engagements. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

  • Grignolino d'Asti Braida Piemonte 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Un vino senz'altro buono, persistente dal colore aranciato, che sicuramente ha perso alcune delle sue caratteristiche predominanti per colpa del lungo invecchiamento, fresco al palato, conserva i profumi della sua terra di origine, molto delicato con sentoti di Rosa. Adatto a torte salate e formaggi non troppo invecchiati, buono anche con mines... Read More

  • I ran up to Napa for a few days to get away and taste some wines from places ... Port. They also do a nice Grignolino.Next, I went to Prager on the recommendation of the friend who turned me on to Venge, so I trusted him.  I expected "Napa" ports, but they really are doing some special port wines and many made from true port varietals.  Favori...

  • Heitz Cellars Grignolino 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Medium dark, clear red color. Very interesting on the nose--get this citrus, also strawberries. Quite subtle on the palate--still getting the strawberry thing, but it is not overwhelming. The wine is quite light-bodied (for a red) Nice acid, very little tannin. Very mellow finish. $15.99 at Total WInes. Read More
