Almost everyone has had Grenache in one or another of its incarnations, though most frequently that was probably in a blended wine – Grenache loves company! In Spain there are exceptional version of Grenache coming from Priorat, for example, but some of the most accessible Grenache-based wines are the value-priced versions coming from regions like Campo de Borja and Aragon.
These are generally rather boisterous wines, fun and filled with dark fruit in a soft style. Wines that are perfect for this grilling season and at their generally very fair prices, they tend to be perfect party wines! Try one a bit chilled next time you fire up the grill!
