    The Graziano Family of Wines includes the respected brands of Graziano, Enotira, Monte Volpe and Saint Gregory.

    The Graziano family is a long line of winemakers and grape growers dating to the early 1900’s. Vincenzo Graziano and wife Angela immigrated to America and eventually found their way to Mendocino County where they started growing grapes and making wine. They first planted vineyards in Mendocino County in 1918. 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.

    In the 1940’s after Prohibition and the Depression, Vincenzo, with other local grape growers, formed the Mendocino Vineyards Winery, which eventually sold and merged into the historically significant Cresta Blanca Winery in the town of Ukiah. Joseph Graziano later followed in his father’s footsteps and worked in the family vineyard operation.

    Like his family before him, Greg Graziano, Vincenzo’s grandson, now carries on the family winemaking tradition, as is his oldest daughter, Alexandra Graziano, a UC Davis graduate of Viticulture and Enology. Our wines continue to reflect an artistic blend of our Italian heritage with a touch of California flair.
