Vina, not Viña?

We are a California winery with Swiss roots that Americanized the Spanish word for vineyard. With no disrespect intended to the Spanish language, we chose to remove the symbol (known as a tilde) over the “n” in Vina to simplify the pronunciation and spelling of our winery name here in the United States. This enables us to still honor the Spanish and Mexican heritage of Paso Robles while keeping things simple for our customers, as well as to avoid potential confusion with Spanish and South American wineries. It is also one more example of how we (pronounced Veena Robe-less) represent a blend of both old and new worlds.
