Graziano Family of Wines Description

Gregory Graziano follows his family’s winemaking and grape-growing history by producing over 35 varietal wines, including some exotic Italian varietals.

The storefront tasting room in downtown Hopland is housed in a cozy, clean space with hardwood floors and windows that look out onto the porch and street. They will allow you to taste not only their Pinot and Zin, but also the crisp Arneis, the fruity Dolcetto, and even the spicy Peppolino.

Gregory Graziano's grandfather first planted vineyards in Mendocino County in 1918. During Prohibition, the family depended on bootlegging wine and selling grapes to home winemakers. Today the winemaker is known as a master blender of wines and produces under four different labels: Saint Gregory is home to their Burgundian wines, most notably Pinot Noir. Monte Volpe focuses on the classic red varieties of Tuscany - Primo Rosso, Sangiovese, Tocai Friulano, Pinot Grigio, and Montepulciano. Enotria is dedicated to the wines of Piedmonte - Arneis, Barbera, Moscato, and Nebbiolo. The Graziano label includes the bold red wines of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah.

Great Value and Variety
brianw, concord
No matter whom is pouring the staff is wonderful and sometimes Greg is there also. Up to 18 wines available for tasting from four labels. Personal favorites are the Zinfandel and Petite Sirah as well as their new sparkling. Also a number of Italian varietals not usually seen. Recommend joining the wine club or get on their mailing list as they have monthly specials that rotate thru most of their offerings.

This tasting room is right off 101 on your way through Hopland. If you are not careful, you may miss it! I loved the wines here. They had delicious Italian varietals. I definitely think it is worth a stop, even if you are just driving through!

A little bit of Italy
Orion, Santa Barbara
Once I stepped foot into the Graziano Family's wine tasting room I was surrounded by the warmth of family history and simple pleasures. The tasting room allows you to view and sample a variety of their collection which ranges in 35 different varieties, under four labels. I found to favor the Monte Volpe Peppolino 2002, it is a unique blend of Italian varietals which give the wine an exotic sense. It's harmonious blend of spices, blackberry fruit and even a hint of black licorice leave you with a lingering feeling of pleasure. Something that can only be experienced upon visting this wonderfull vineyard.
