Gracia is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
A powerful bouquet of crushed rocks, spring flowers, blackberries, blueberries, and a steely mineral character.



“Gracia is the true, original Garage wine! It is produced inside the picturesque village of Saint-Emilion in a small space, located on a tiny back alley that is next to a working garage. The small, stone building is not marked. There are no signs. If you know where it is, you can recognize it best by its old, faded, red, wood door.

The estate is owned by Michel Gracia. Michel Gracia is an interesting man, who knows everyone and everything about Saint Emilion. In part, that is because he is also a contractor and stonemason that has worked for many of the top estates including Château Cheval Blanc, Petrus and several other well known properties in the region.

Thanks to prodding by Jean Luc Thunevin of Valandraud and Alain Vauthier of Château Ausone, Michel Gracia founded his winery in 1994, when he purchased a small, 1.5 hectare parcel of vines in great terroir that is located close to Château Troplong Mondot. The difficult 1997 marked the debut vintage for Gracia.” -winecellarinsider
