Frank Grace founded this winery nearly 30 years ago, but the “roots” of these vineyards harken back to the 17th century when monks from the local monastery were harvesting the grapes. Today, he and his sons Daniel and Tim oversee the work (no monks). Using a balance of modern, science-based organic wine production methods and the old world artful traditions that have been part of the Chianti Classico region for over 300 years, they produce wines that celebrate the marriage of Tuscan terroir and Sangiovese grapes. Daniel is making one of his rare visits to Los Angeles and will be with us to talk wine, history and provide a unique perspective of his family’s efforts in the Tuscan hills. Owner Andrea Inio and his Executive Chef Edin Marroquin have created a tantalizing menu to pair with these wines. Come take a trip with us to Chianti with leaving the comfort of your chair in Orto. It will be a night to remember! Grab some friends that love great wine and great food and join us.
