Grown with Attitude, Harvested with Gratitude
Our story does not begin with us. Our story begins with our parents and grandparents whose hard work has made our American dream possible. Our gratitude is reflected in our name and the inscription on every bottle: “GRATUS”, Latin translation-thankfulness. We are truly thankful.
Thomas was born and raised in the coal and steel country of southwestern Pennsylvania; Victoria is from the Bible Belt in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
Fast forward to many years later when Victoria’s sister, Carol, arranged a blind date leading to a romantic trip to Napa Valley where the couple fell in love with each other and a wondrous and magical property in Northern California. After a small amount of blood, much sweat, and many tears later, we call this Gratus Vineyards.
