About Grenache Red Wine

About Grenache Red Wine
Grenache is the world's most widely planted red variety, yet its fame is primarily as a blending variety. The most famous examples are in the Rhone Valley as part of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, in Spain (where it is known as Garnacha) in Priorat reds, and in Australia, where it is often blended with Shiraz.
