Heitz Cellar Grignolino 2016
Grignolino is an Italian varietal from the Piedmont region in northern Italy. Our original Grignolino vines dating back to the 1940’s were grown on “The Only One Vineyard” surrounding our 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. We have developed a great affection for Grignolino since we discovered it back in 1959 and are the only producer of a 100% varietal Grignolino in the U.S.
