Sonoma County Millennial Siblings Launch Grateful Wine Brand
Gracianna Winery Built Upon Amador Family Traditions

(Healdsburg, CALIF.) —Sonoma County siblings Ashley Amador and Trini Amador, IV have launched Gracianna Winery, a new Sonoma County wine brand that focuses on gratitude. The third commercial releases of the brand produced by these millennial siblings is available now.

Gracianna was the name of the Amador’s great-great grandmother Gracianna Lasaga who instilled in her family the tradition of gathering around the table and being grateful. The tradition has been passed from generation to generation and continues around the Amador family table to this day. “Our great-great grandmother prepared simple but gracious meals that always included wine,” said Ashley Amador “My parents continued this tradition. These gatherings are beautiful, warm and always delivered with grace. As descendants of Gracianna Lasaga, and now through our wine brand, we keep the tradition alive today.” The Gracianna label bears the image of a beautifully-wrapped gift.

Trini Amador, IV who—before earning degrees in Applied Agriculture and minors in both Horticulture and Winemaking—experimented with winemaking as a Sonoma County teenager makes the wine, while his sister Ashley focuses on brand development and communications. “When I was a teenager, I used to drive along River Road every morning to get to school, and I would see people in the vineyards, working closely with the vines,” said Trini Amador, IV, “It piqued my interest so eventually I was drawn to the wine business.”

Gracianna Winery’s current releases include 2009 Gracianna Bacigalupi Pinot Noir, 2009 Gracianna Bacigalupi Zinfandel and 2010 Gracianna Suzanne’s Blend Chardonnay. For more information call 707-694-6644 or go to www.gracianna.net.
