International Grenache Day, Friday 16th September
Every third Friday of the month of September we celebrate the International Grenache Day to commemorate the history of this grape, variety of which origin is Aragón. This year it will be on Friday, 16th September that we celebrate the day of our main variety, the Grenache. It is already the fifth most planted red variety in the world. For us it represents 65% of the vines, it is a jewel of an intense purple red that hangs in bunches of leaves of a vibrant green, it is our base, origin and tradition.
This is the Garnacha Grape, also known as the Aragonese Red, and the International Day of the Grenache celebrates its evolution, history and the contribution, it has made to some of the most delicious wines in the world.
In Bodegas Borsao we have always bet on it, defending the vines, taking care of the grapes, giving the plant what it needed on the field and in the winery.
And so turning our wines into special and outstanding wines nationally and internationally.
How to celebrate International Grenache Day?
