Tempranillo

This Thursday 14th November is International Tempranillo Day!

This Thursday we’ll be celebrating Spain’s most revered grape variety Tempranillo. This extraordinarily versatile grape calls Rioja home, and goes into many of the region’s most coveted blends. This variety thrives in the moderate mountain climate of the Rioja region, producing wines characterised by their balanced alcohol content, colour, and acidity, with gentle and elegant flavours that are mainly fruity in nature when young, developing a more velvety texture when aged. Perfect for many occasions, how will you celebrate these wines? Perhaps a glass of Rioja Tempranillo at home or go out for a drink with friends and pair this versatile wine with some traditional tapas?! However you decide to celebrate International Tempranillo Day please tweet us at @RiojaWine_UK using the hashtags #TempranilloDay #Tempranillo – enjoy!
