The 7th Annual International Grenache Day a.k.a #GrenacheDay on Friday September 16th will be one of the biggest days of 2016 for wine lovers. As it marks the worldwide day-long celebration of everything Grenache, one of the most widely planted and least known red grapes in the world. For many Grenachistas across the wine universe, #GrenacheDay has become a call to arms to raise a glass or open a bottle for more than just a day.

According to Bob Lindquist, legendary California winemaker of cult classic Qupé wines, “The Rhone Rangers proudly supports #GrenacheDay.. What a fun way for all wine lovers to celebrate a grape that spans the globe, makes beautiful wines and brings pleasure to so many.”

Wine retailer Wine Exchange owner Kyle Meyer thinks #GrenacheDay is the perfect day to invest in Grenache-based wines. “At some point many a collector may sell off their Napa Cabernet or Bordeaux, but they always save and drink their Chateauneufs!”

Grenache, which goes by many names including Garnacha, Cannonau, Alicante and Garnaxta, is planted on 6 of the 7 continents. It puts a lush pink blush in rosé, brings a deeper complexity to Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Puts the G into GSM blends of Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre; best of all, its voluptuous mouthfeel stands on its own.
