Winemaker ​Angela Osborne moved to California in 2006 with the dream of making Grenache. In the land from which she stems (New Zealand), the climate is too cool to ripen this sun-loving beauty. And so began her search: northern Spain, southern France, southern Australia, California…
 
Abundant sunshine and entrepreneurial spirit led her to the latter, and in 2007 she sourced her first Grenache fruit from the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard. Nestled high above the Pacific Ocean and 33 miles inland, this high-desert vineyard provided the perfect balance of heat and light she sought.
 
She chose to name my label after two of her favourite things: her Grandmother Grace, and her most beloved attribute. Angela's winemaking intention is to capture this spirit, and stay as close to nature as humanly possible. The trio is completed by the grape itself, which to her encapsulates grace.​


Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"This was my eighth vintage from the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard, and the expression of Grenache that accompanies the altitude here continues to amaze me. At 3000 feet elevation, the soil is a combination of decomposed granite and clay loam, and reminds me greatly of what I imagine the moon to look like. The elevation brings a diurnal shift of up to 50’F, which allows for a rebalancing after often-soaring daytime temperatures. Kaolin Clay was sprayed on the Grenache clusters to minimise sun-damage (an effective natural sunscreen for grapes), whilst also aiding in slowing acid respiration. In 2014, I continued with the 67% whole cluster inclusion that I have employed since 2012. Whilst the drought continues to heighten skin tannins, I have long believed that stem inclusion helps balance these tannins ~ thus making for a more integrated grace."


90/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"The 2014 Grenache Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard is one of the most lifted and perfumed wines in Angela Osborne's lineup, although of course, all the wines are aromatic in style. Dried leaves, tobacco, wild flowers and spices waft from the glass in a delicate, nuanced Grenache. Eccentric in style, the 2014 is not as varietally as some of the other wines in the range, but instead provides plenty of insights into Osborne's deeply personal style. The 2014 was done with about 2/3rds whole clusters and aged predominantly in neutral oak."

  • review rating 5  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    review rating 5  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
