DISCOVER THE EUROPEAN GRAPE YOU NEVER KNEW YOU KNEW

The Mediterranean Grape

Welcome to the wonderful and exciting world of Garnacha/Grenache, one of the oldest and most widely planted wine grapes in the world! If you feel unfamiliar with the wines it produces, no worries! The truth is that you have most likely experienced one (or many) already!

While most people know Garnacha/Grenache for playing a role in GSM blends, a new generation of winemakers in Europe, and particularly in its birthplace of Eastern Spain and Roussillon, is crafting innovative wines in which the grape plays the starring role. A sip of these new wines is enough to understand European quality Garnacha/Grenache’s ability to deliver complex, structured and well-balanced wines. Join us in the discovery of this unique grape.

Luscious reds. Full bodied whites. Intense roses

Garnacha is the only mainstream grape with red and white varieties. The wine itself can be red, white, and rose. Also, most experts agree that Garnacha conveys the expression of soil, landscape and climate like no other wine. With that combination, Garnacha is one of the most versatile and diverse varieties.

You can pair a whole meal with different Garnacha wines: a rosé as an aperitif, a white with the starter, a red with the main course, a red or fortified red to accompany cheese, then wind things up with a fortified white for dessert.

Taste Profiles

Always very expressive and showcasing a full range of aromas and flavors, these wines speak loudly of their place of origin by clearly transcribing their respective terroirs.
