Grenaches du Monde: An Olympic edition!

On May 13th , the international competition dedicated to the Grenache grape variety celebrated its 12th edition in Paris, the ‘Grenache’ and… Olympic capital!

After its excursion to New York last year, the competition is positioning itself in one of Europe’s leading consumer and prescription markets. A panel of around a hundred international experts picked the best Grenache wines in the lounges of the Aéro Club de France (Paris, 16º) which you can check the results here .

Grenaches du Monde is an annual competition open to all Grenache wines (pure or blended), regardless of colour, origin, or nationality. With 163,000 hectares of vineyards, Grenache is the seventh most planted grape variety in the world. It is the emblematic variety of the Mediterranean countries, mainly Spain and France, which together account for almost 90% of the world’s planted area. Spain, France, and Italy are the three main producing countries, flying the flag for Europe, but Grenache is very popular all over the world: North and South Africa, Australia, North and South America, Croatia, Greece, Lebanon, etc.

In a dynamic, business-like format, Grenaches du Monde aims to attract an audience of demanding and influential professional tasters from all over the world, to discover the richness and diversity of this emblematic grape variety. A time for sharing and conviviality, Grenaches du Monde celebrates the culture and know-how of Grenache producers at an event that has become a must in the professional calendar, highlighting all the producers and all the regions that make Grenache wines, in all their forms: red, rosé, white, sweet or sparkling. This twelve edition was a consecration for this unique grape variety, which is winning over more and more wine-lovers and consumers around the world.
