If anyone personified fearless visionary thinking it was Gary Grunau, who died early this morning at age 80 after a two year battle with brain cancer, his family announced.
If you've think you've seen it all when it comes to high-end wine programs in restaurants, you'll think again when you've experienced the "All Roots Lead to Wisconsin" list at c.1880, winner of the 2013 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.
Milwaukee-based Grunau Wines has acquired legendary Sta. Rita Hills AVA "La Encantada" Vineyard.
The Grunau family needs no introduction in Milwaukee. The builders have made a long-lasting impact on the city. Now, two Milwaukee Grunaus are looking to make an impact on the world of wine. Husband and wife team John and Adrienne Grunau have launched Grunau Wines, making their own wines in California from grapes grown by others.
