Let's Talk Wine! An Interview With Grant Long of Aonair In The Beautiful Napa Valley!

Updated: Jul 7, 2020

The amazing weather and wine that the Napa Valley is famous for does not disappoint as Jeremy Durfee of Wine Tour Pros and Grant Long, Winemaker and Proprietor of Aonair have a chance to sit and enjoy both.

In the video clip below they discuss the following:

  • Farming doesn’t stop because of Covid 19

  • The history and story of “Dads Block”

  • Future releases 2019 white wine

  • Bringing the taste of Napa to you through virtual tasting until you can come out in person

  • Grants dog Gilly also makes an appearance displaying one of his farming rolls as a vineyard dog

In this next video clip, Grant speaks to us about family and how this was incorporated in bottling in the years his children were born.

Then we lead into the 2017 Mountains Proprietary that some club members have received already. Aonair’s flagship wine blend of Cab, Cab Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot comes from all 5 mountain blocks to showcase vintage characteristics of a given year.

Since 2015 Cab Franc has been a major component in the blending, really showcasing the blue fruit and spice.

Grant also talks excitedly on camera and off, about the 2018 vintage! Off-camera he said it’s going to be “lightning in a bottle”, so we are certainly excited to see what’s coming up not only at Aonair, but all of our other favorite vineyards too!
