ALL HAIL GRENACHE
AT WOLFE’S WINE SHOPPE
Friday, September 24th 7-9pm
At a recent international symposium held in the south of France, the participants decided to designate one day to promote the greatness of Grenache — “G Day”– to occur around the world. Grenache is a red grape used widely in producing red wine throughout Spain and France, as well as in other parts of the world. It is somewhat sweet, and its primary use in wine is as a blending grape, rather than being used on its own. In Spain, Grenache is known as Garnacha, where it is the single-most planted grape in the country. There are two varieties, known as Garnacha Tinta and Garnacha Blanca, with the red variety Tinta being by far the more popular. We are doing our part in this global movement to put Grenache in its rightful place on the wine map and hope you will join us.
