Garnacha Wines

8 Spanish picks

Garnacha Wines It’s just Grenache in Spanish and you know what, that might be its mother tongue. What on earth am I talking about? Just that world traveler known as Grenache and the lovely wines the Spaniards are making with this versatile grape.

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!

    Happy to see your Garnacha selection and article. There are a ton of great value garnachas out there to try, so I hope people will expand on your suggestions. Glad to see Tres Picos, Monte Oton and Vina Borgia on the list - the Borgia is now available in a 3 liter box which works out to less than $5 a bottle at many retailers. I might suggest also Atteca and its little brother Garnacha de Fuego. As you can probably tell, I like Jorge Ordonez wines.

    We've been enjoying the 2009 Old Vines Evodia-- 100% garnacha, delish, and a jaw-dropping $6.99 at our local Costco! As the saying goes, a bargain at twice the price. It's our house red for the summer.

    I was hoping to see a garnacha rosado in there... please get right on that, Greg!

    Missing from this list; and it's a fine list, is Las Rocas & Las Rocas Vinas Viejas, both superb Garnachas, and in my opinion, head and shoulders above any of these.
