Grenache

(aka. Grenache Noir, Garnacha, Cannonau, Lladoner, Tinto Aragones, Alicante)

Traditionally in California, Grenache has mostly been planted in the warm Central Valley, to produce fruity, quaffable reds and pinks. But the emergence of Rhône blends, enthusiastically promoted by a band of winemakers known as the ‘Rhone Rangers’, has sparked an increase in plantings of Grenache in more esteemed California viticultural zones. Significant acreage of this grape is found in Santa Barbara and Monterey counties. Grenache’s ability to produce in warm climates has made it a workhorse varietal not only in California, but also in the warmth of South Australia and South Africa. Grenache-based wines tend to be high in alcohol, with attractive fruit qualities in youth.

Profumi delicati di macchia mediterranea, al gusto sentori di liquirizia, prugna, melagrana. Media persistenza, retrogusto di mirto e lentisco. Colore, leggermente aranciato t... Read More

  • One of Syrah’s problem with consumers has always been the savory nature ... though the tiny plantings of Grenache and Nebbiolo have also been pretty impressive. With only 18 producers and growers and under 600 acres, out of a potential of 7,700 within the AVA under vine, it might seem that we’re making a mountain out of a molehill , but those ... Read More

Comes from the ridges in the vineyards with shallowest soils and most limestone influence. All spontaneous fermentation. Limestone gives great ripeness, helps hold the acidity, ... Read More
