Ubben VineyardsA grace note is an ornament or embellishment to a musical composition that in the words of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788) "are not only useful, but indispensable. They connect the notes; they give them life. They emphasize them, and illustrate the sentiments, be they sad or merry; the best melody without them may seem obscure and meaningless." The Ubben family's beloved friend Grace whose short time on earth, love of music and admirable approach to life inspires each of them daily, is the inspiration for their first vintage of wines bearing this label.
