International Tempranillo Day!

by: Virginia Valdez Sandfer

It’s International Tempranillo Day! We’re celebrating with a SALE. Enjoy two of our bold, Spanish-style reds at a special price today (11/12/2020) only!

Tempranillo is a grape indigenous to Spain and used in the great Rioja and Ribera del Duero wines, you can find it planted in 500,000 acres of the world’s vineyards, making it the fourth most planted wine grape, and that would be enough reason to celebrate.

Until recently, the entire acreage was almost all grown in Spain. This noble grape is rapidly spreading, creating excitement and a spirit of cooperation among adventurous vintners bringing this Old World variety to New World soils. Tempranillo today is grown in many countries including our very own Dunnigan Hills. And that’s why The Tapa Society  (Tempranillo Advocates, Producers and Amigos Society) established this yearly celebration –  International Tempranillo Day. (via Tapa Society)
