About Savage Graces Wines:
Savage Grace Wines was established in 2011 by owner-winemaker Michael Savage, with a vintage of Cabernet Franc.
His vision is to make Old World style lower-alcohol, balanced, and expressive wines. He is continuing to deepen his core understanding of all stages in the vinification process, to put his philosophy of low-intervention winemaking into practice, where the grape, vineyard and vintage form a unique balance.
“SAVAGE” – echoes the struggle of the grape to withstand the stress of ripening, along with making wine that is true to the grape, site, and vintage.
“GRACE” – also his wife’s name, is symbolizing what he hopes to achieve as the end result a wine that is delicate, balanced, approachable yet expressive.
”People thought I was crazy to be picking fruit when I was picking, that the fruit wasn’t ripe enough and that I was bottling too early. Other wine makers told me that I would never sell the wines. I didn’t care, because I thought the wines tasted delicious. I couldn’t make big fruit driven wines, because I didn’t believe in it. I just wanted to make something that I thought was good and I didn’t care about selling it at that point. I just felt that if the wine was good, people would buy it.”
