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)

  • Tenuta Dei Re Grignolino d'Asti DOC 2011

    Snoothrank:

    I tasted this light bodied Piemonte Grignolino at dinner last night. It struck me for its bright ruby red color, very delicate red berry fruit aromas, especially cranberry. On the palate warm and dry, but fresh and elegant! (I think this winery exports to China) Grignolino goes well with everything from assorted antipasti to creamy cheeses. Read More
