The founders of Grayson believe they can create a better bottle of wine at a better price point than what’s generally in the market today. Therefore Mike O'Connell and his wife founded Grayson Cellars, dedicating their winery to selecting the best grapes from the best regions within California, and bottling the wine at an approachable price point. More than 15 years later, the winery is still run by the O'Connell family, with their two sons now involved in management, and then wine is still a beautiful representation of what California has to offer.
