Piazza Family Wines knows that great wines are not made in the cellar but in the vineyard. They intentionally want to showcase the unique qualities of place with the wines. Each wine is handcrafted to represent the soil, climate, and varietal for each vintage. There is no substitution for hard work and attention to detail. With a focus on the vineyard, Piazza Family Wines has worked with esteemed vineyard manager, Ruben Solorzano, to follow organic farming practices to ensure that each harvest yields the best possible grapes and gives a true representation of their terroir. Old-world styles blend with new-world techniques when it comes to Piazza Family Wines.

In the winery, Winemaker Gretchen Voelcker focuses on minimal intervention and allows for the grapes to speak for themselves. She listens to the harvest and picks the grapes at optimal times for balance and complexity. She guides the winemaking process using no commercial yeasts and the smallest amount of sulfur needed. The wines she crafts are a true sense of place, varietal definition, and inherently exude balance and elegance.

The 2023 Carbonic Graciano is winemaker Gretchen Voelcker's favorite vintage of this wine to date and fun is an understatement! While the juicy and bright palate of red raspberry, boysenberries, and red hot dollars candy initially entices you it is the notes of cola and pepper that surprise and delight your senses. This wine is bright yet complex with balanced acidity and flavors, approachable mid palate with a very long chalky yet velvety finish. Serve this with a slight chill on a warm day for ultimate enjoyment!

100% whole cluster carbonic fermentation, intracellular native fermentation, unfined and unfiltered, 6.5 months aged in neutral French oak barrels
