It has become clear that wine drinkers are demanding varietal wines beyond the strongholds we've seen on shelves and menus for decades. Let's face it; there was a palate gap in the United States' most commonly consumed varietals. That gap has been bridged by Garnacha. Not a single other commonly consumed grape brings the same level of crowd-plea... Read More
