About Grenache Day
The third Friday in September is the official #GrenacheDay every year.
The Grenache Association was created in France to bring awareness to one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world and they plan to have a symposium and master class series every 3 years.
Grenache is found all over southern France and Spain, thriving in hot, dry vineyards. It is a major variety in the Rhône Villages and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in northern Spain where it's known as garnacha. Naturally high in alcohol, it's an important grape for the production not only of red wines, but makes excellent rosés and fortified wines too.Find out more
