Domaine Saint Gregory

Domaine Saint Gregory Gregory Graziano's grandfather, Vincenzo Graziano, and his wife Angela, first planted vineyards in Mendocino County in 1918 where they grew and sold grapes. In the late 1920's Vincenzo had to depend on selling grapes to home winemakers on the east coast and bootlegging wine to support his family. n the 1940's after Prohibition and the Depression, Vincenzo, along with other local grape growers, formed the Mendocino Vineyards Winery, which eventually was sold and merged into the historically significant Cresta Blanca Winery in the town of Ukiah. Gregory Graziano Vincenzo's grandson, now carries on the family winemaking tradition that his grandfather set the foundation for and that his father Joseph later handed down to Gregory.

  Pinot Meunier - Mendocino
This grape is a relative of the very mutative Pinot Noir and it gets name from the fine white hairs on the underside of the grape leaf which from a distance resembles baking flour, thus “The Miller” (Meunier in French.) The Pinot Meunier grape is native to Burgundy and Champagne where it is used as a valuable blending component of many champagnes, where it adds fruitiness and softness to these wines. In Mendocino County, we are able to produce a very elegant still wine that has deep aromas and flavors. This wine has deep aromas and flavors of cherry pie, raspberry and toasty oak. This well-balanced wine has firm acidity and an elegant mouth feel. It finishes long, smooth and fruity. Excellent when served with soft cheeses, pork or duck in fruit sauces.
  Pinot Noir - Mendocino
This wine is dark purple garnet in color. Burgundian in style; with rich, full and attractive aromas/flavors of ripe black cherries, toasty oak and hints of earth. Ripe tannins, soft acidity and a velvety mouth-feel produce a luscious wine. Delicious companions with this wine are duck with dried cherries, sage-roasted double pork chops with stuffing, and roasted lamb with Mediterranean vegetables.
  Pinot Noir - Potter Valley
What is biodynamic farming? Basically it was established in the 1920’s in Europe by Rudolf Steiner and farmers wanting to farm organically, rebuild their farms, soils and cut their dependence on chemicals and the outside world. Some of its principals involve raising animals, making compost, using special preparations to be sprayed on the soil and on the vines and using both planetary and lunar cycles to perform farming and winery tasks.
  Pinot Noir Reserve - Anderson Valley, Romani Vineyard
A cool and long summer produced a wine which is rich and fruity with aromas and flavors of black cherries, plums and toasty oak. Dark garnet in color, with a soft balanced acidity, full-rich tannins, and a rich velvety mouthfeel make this Pinot Noir perfect with lamb and wild game. This wine is approachable now but will develop further with additional bottle aging.
Pinotage is a grape variety whose genetic parents are Pinot Noir and Cinsault (a Rhone grape). It was developed in 1920's and was unique to South Africa for many years. In Mendocino County, we are able to produce a very lively aromatic wine that has deep aromas and flavors. This generous Pinotage surrounds us with aromas and flavors of ripe wild berries, cherries, and a beautiful earthy tone. The wine is well balanced with medium-soft tannins and a nice, firm acidity. The mouth- filling fruit flavors carry throughout its long, lingering finish. Enjoy this special wine with wild game or hardy cheeses.
