“The 2016 Grayson Merlot is sumptuous and rich with a beautiful purple garnet color. The aromas show rich complexity of black cherry preserves, currant and white chocolate. This is a magnificently decadent Merlot that finishes with soft tannins, dark fruits and elaborate oak.” ~winery notes

The founders of Grayson believe that we can put to work our Napa Valley winemaking skills to create some of the highest quality wines at the by-the-glass price point. We believe that decades of Napa winemaking experience will allow us to create a better bottle of wine at a better price point than what's generally in the market today.
Our current releases include our California Chardonnay, California Pinot Noir, California Zinfandel, California Merlot and California Cabernet Sauvignon. You will find our wines to be fruit forward, well balanced and pleasant to drink.
Our wines are carefully crafted by Larry Levin, who is among the most experienced winemakers in the Napa Valley. After completing his Enology degree at UC Davis, Larry spent seventeen years at Dry Creek Vineyard where over 18 vintages he produced more than 15 varietal wines. He has since covered the globe by making wine in New Zealand, Chile, and Australia across all price points and styles. For the previous nine years Larry was head of winemaking at Icon Estates where he oversaw the Franciscan, Mt. Veeder, Robert Mondavi, Estancia, Ravenswood, Quintessa and Ruffino brands. Larry also consults for wineries in the Stag's Leap and Oakville districts in Napa and Sonoma.
Grayson Winery produces its wines at a state-of-the-art Napa Valley production facility very near Highway 29.
We insist our winemakers search throughout California's finest growing regions to find the highest quality grapes for Grayson wines. The wines are then made by Larry Levin in Napa, California.
