Richard Grant Wines
Pinot Noir produced from America's only Wrotham Pinot Noir vineyard. The 2-acre vineyard was propagated from a single, 200-year-old wild vine in Wrotham, Kent, England and brought to the Napa Valley by Dr. Richard Grant Peterson. It is an ancient seedling of Pinot Noir thought to have been introduced to England by the Romans nearly 2,000 years ago. A sparkling wine is also produced.
I have found the Richard Grant wines very unusual and highly appealing for their individuality. The wines may be ordered online.
