Why #GarnachaDay Fever Is Here To Stay
What do people have in common with wine grapes? Both possess strong, unique personalities and characteristics; Garnacha is no exception. It is perhaps the world’s most malleable grape, demonstrating versatility and poise no matter where it is found. (Think Cannanou in Sardinia and Grenache in France; both are guises of Garnacha.) But there is one thing that’s certain whether you’re a person or wine grape: There’s no place like home. Garnacha, well-traveled as it may be, is at home in Eastern Spain. This is its birthplace, and there’s nothing quite like a home game advantage. Garnacha from Spain is the grape at its absolute best. What’s more, the ever-malleable Garnacha has a curious knack for expressing terroir better than anyone else around. Combine this inherent talent with the grape’s ancestral lands, and you’ve got some magic stirring in your glass. Snooth celebrated Garnacha with a smashing virtual tasting on Garnacha Day (September 18th), featuring Master Sommelier Laura Maniec and Spanish Sommelier of the Year Guillermo Cruz. Did you miss the party? Don’t fret. Click through the slides to watch highlights. If you'd prefer to watch the entire tasting and read the chat log, click here.
