Top 10 Grenache Producers-Top Wines

These top 10 producer lists are always a challenge. The challenge is not finding 10 producers, but rather whittling down a list to 10 and settling on the criteria one uses.

In truth, I failed miserably at this project. Eventually I just had to surrender and develop two lists, one for the best values and another for my favorite wines. There is actually some overlap between the two lists, a great producer of Chateauneuf-du-Pape for example can produce a wonderful Cotes du Rhone as well.

So in my selection process, simply making great wine was a fundamental requirement, but producing wines with a certain typicity and consistency were  traits that I also weighed heavily. Ultimately when it came right down to it, some value reigned supreme when compiling both of these lists. Not value as in who provides the best inexpensive wine, but rather value ss in who provided the best bang for one’s buck.  

With that in mind, I am comfortable finding values across a broad price spectrum. These wineries are some of the most renowned producers of Grenache and Grenache-based wines.

  • God bless you all at Snooth for obviously discovering my recommendation in a thread with a fellow reader a few months back, for the Domaine du Cayron Gigondas. I shall now struggle to put my hat on, and regret not ordering the 2010.
