The best places to visit when exploring Grenache grapes
Day Trip to Tavel
Grenache is not a one trick pony. It is also a major player, along with Cinsault, in the world’s only Rose Appellation: Tavel! This is the land of serious Rose, well as serious as Rose can get. These are dry, mineral and quite tense, even if they are wrapped in exquisitely soft layers of Grenache’s red fruit. Take a drive over to Tavel and enjoy a visit with the most famous producer, Chateau d’Aqueria.
In addition to the Rose, Chateau d’Aqueria also produces wonderful wines from the Lirac region. Based on Grenache but blended with Syrah and Mourvedre, these are plump and juicy wines, filled with black and red fruits. They are delicious in their own right but in a way must play second fiddle to the Rose!
