After spending his entire career in the wine business, Grant Long, Jr. has settled into his role as sole proprietor at Aonair as easily as one relaxes into an easy chair after a long day. Not that he would know much about relaxing these days.
Grant’s focus now is on handcrafting rich, premium wines for Aonair (pronounced: ā-ō-nair). He uses only the best grapes, in limited barrel quantities, and his wines consist of bold vintages, primarily sourced from the rocky volcanic hillside vineyards of Napa Valley. For Grant, it is not about quantity, but quality. Many wine connoisseurs have called these the best wines in the world. But we’ll leave that up to you to decide.
