Wine Basics — Grape Varietals 101: Grenache (aka: Garnacha)
Celebrate International Grenache Day on the 3rd Friday in September
Easily on of the most recognizable wine regions, “New Castle of the Pope” allows up to 13 different grape varieties in the blend with Grenache leading the pack. The region is steeped in tradition with hand- picked grapes from vines as old as 60 years. Rich, exotic, luscious and silky are typical descriptors and the ageing potential is at least a decade - but you may not be able to wait that long!
