Natale Verga Wines
From export manager to sommelier, Cinzia has a great passion for the wine industry and has worked as export manager at Casa Vinicola Natale Verga since 2006.
Inspired by the diversity of the Willamette Valley soils and microclimates, John makes wines that are balanced, textured, and expressive of place.
I feel like the mother of these wines that I created with the Verga family.
These wines tell a story of great sacrifice and enthusiasm, but with the wisdom of the importance of taking small steps and showing great respect for relationships. Cinzia’s mission is to communicate a production philosophy through the wines based on elegant and balanced sensations, clean flavors and consistent quality with honesty and passion for the wine world.
Natale Verga Chianti
Made in Tuscany, this ruby red wine with garnet highlights and an aroma of mixed berries is dry and delicious on the palate with a pleasant soft finish.
Natale Verga Brut
A fresh and light Prosecco with creamy, bubbly foam and aromas of peach, lemon candy and grapefruit. Perfect by itself or in a bellini, mimosa or champagne cocktail.
Opulent blackberry and rose fruit on the palate with pleasant spicy and woody notes blending perfectly with the full, elegant flavor and the robust body.
After racing bicycles in France in his early 20’s, John Grochau returned to his hometown of Portland, OR and found his calling in hospitality — and wine specifically. With more than a decade selling wine in some of Portland’s finest restaurants, Grochau plunged into winemaking. He spent a year in Sonoma before returning to Oregon to work at Erath Winery, and then worked alongside winemaker Doug Tunnel at Brick House Vineyards for four years. His first vintage as Grochau Cellars was 2002.
With Grochau’s restaurant experience, there was a natural progression as a winemaker to craft food-friendly wines that enhance a meal. Grochau strives to make wines that are balanced, textured and expressive of place. Inspired by the diversity of the Willamette Valley’s soils and microclimates, Grochau sources fruit from fifteen organic and sustainably-farmed vineyards.
Grapes are hand-harvested and wines undergo a slow, natural fermentation. Working with grape varieties with a legacy in the Willamette Valley – namely Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc – Grochau also seeks to showcase the potential of emerging varieties like Melon de Bourgogne and Gamay.
