Our next event. Well not exactly our event, but one we are taking part in.

The second International Grenache Day will be celebrated this Saturday 24th September,2011 and wine scribe Matthew Nugent is the

driving force behind the Irish celebrations of the day.

Although France (Southern Rhone) and Spain (Priorat and Rioja) may claim to be the heartland of the variety, with 100 year old plantings

in the Barossa, Mc Laren Vale and the Clare Valley, Grenache is equally at home in Australia

The format below, and more details attached, of what Matthew has planned for the evening. Should be a fun.

Very grateful if you could forward this to any friends/family/colleagues/customers whom you think might be tempted.

6pm to 7.15pm – Tutored Tasting . Jane Ferrari (Yalumba in Australia) Toni Batet (Torres in Spain ) and John Wilson (Irish Times) host this tasting.7.15pm – 8pm Free Pour Tasting.Twenty Grenache or Grenache-based wines for you to taste at your leisure.8 pm Dinner.Four-course meal, with a wine for each course.
