Graciano grapes are original to La Rioja and Navarra, where it is traditionally used in blends of Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva.
Its name, Graciano, (gracious) gives a hint that it is used to add grace to wines adding color and freshness.
Since 2006 we make a single varietal of Graciano called 8A Mil Gracias, created by Adriana Ochoa, sixth generation of the family. This was the first red of the last generation, a 100% graciano that shows the union of a unique soil from finca La Pedrera and the singularity of the grape variety.
This is a wine for curious and adventurous wine drinkers.
