Mignanelli fifty fifty

Monterey, CA – The Mignanelli Family’s history of distinctly crafting highly rated single-vineyard and appellation-specific wines continues beyond their accredited Mignanelli brand, as the family has placed significant effort toward producing wines that are priced for everyday enjoyment — leading to the creation of a new ultra-premium brand.

Mignanelli Family Wines is excited to announce an innovative, forward-thinking and relevant brand, the first addition to their portfolio outside of single-appellation wines, Fifty-Fifty ‘Grand Appellation’, focused on a single established varietal from two noteworthy appellations, resulting in an artfully crafted 50/50 blend. The Mignanelli Family has partnered with long-term notable growers in the most sought-after appellations (Anderson Valley, Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Maria Valley) to compose wines of impeccable quality and true varietal character. The ‘Grand Appellation’ series represents a collaboration of two well-renowned appellations, both known for the exquisite quality of the same varietal. The inaugural dual appellation 50/50 blend is comprised of Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir. Fifty-Fifty wines are produced under the artisan eye of Winemaster Byron Mignanelli, retailing at $17.99.

*Fifty-Fifty ‘Grand Appellation’ is scheduled for release into the US national market the last week of May, 2020.


The Mignanellis have a vineyard-focused philosophy for which they attribute the elegance of their wines. Using the terroir to express the varietal allows for the growing season to define the vintage. Mignanelli wines highlight the premier growing regions and signature varietals along California’s Central Coast. Mignanelli Family Wines has become known for distinctly crafting Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
