HEALDSBURG, Calif., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Gracianna Winery continues its growth and has been selected with a published feature in Cooking with Paula Deen magazine's "Batch of Ideas." The January/February issue is now on newsstands.
"Gracianna is for those who have something to be grateful for - we are pleased that the Cooking with Paula Deen magazine recognizes the power of gratitude and wants to help share our story," said partner/owner Ashley Amador.
Oprah Winfrey, Alice Waters from Chez Panisse and many others have shared their gratitudes with Gracianna.
"Our wine is made with brilliant fruit. But beyond great wine, Gracianna exists to help others express what they are thankful for. On Gracianna's web site, visitors share their reflections on personal gratitude for the whole world to see," said Amador. Whether people enjoy wine or not, Robert Emmons, a psychology professor at the University of California, Davis, says, "Those who offer gratitude are less envious and resentful. They sleep longer, exercise more and report a drop in blood pressure." Emmons is the author of "Thanks! How Practicing Gratitude Can Make You Happier."
Gracianna's newly released 2007 Russian River Pinots and Zinfandels have caused quite a buzz among wine insiders. These outstanding wines, available directly from the winery, have burst onto the scene in Healdsburg. Gracianna defines their wine with luscious Bacigalupi Vineyard fruit. The small production winery is one to watch as they continue innovative ways to reach the consumer and share stories of gratitude.
Upstart Gracianna Winery is owned by the Amador Family and has been fostered by two surprisingly young, disciplined and driven Sonoma County natives, Ashley and Trini Amador.
The Amador Family named the brand after their French Basque great grandmother, who was remembered by the family for her talents in hosting simple celebrations. Gracianna wine is a testament to painstaking craftsmanship. The hand-detailed bottles showcase memorable world-class wine.
Gracianna's home is in Healdsburg on the part of Westside Road that local experts call "The Miracle Mile." The first production release is available now with the second vintage releasing this spring. Watch for these brilliantly produced Gracianna wine creations that will likely become Sonoma County's most treasured favorites. The Amadors expect their estate vineyard designated "Mercedes' Vineyard" Pinot Noir wine release in 2013.
