Grenache

Time

18:30

Place

Quality Inn & Conference Centre
424 Gregoire Drive
Fort McMurray, Alberta

There has to be something special in the fact that Grenache is the most planted grape varietal in the world.
Although planted all over the world, its plantings are heavily concentrated in France and Spain but gaining traction in Australia; there it has a completely different character.
Grenache is a favoured blending grape in many regions for its ability to add depth and complexity and blended or alone it makes many wonderfully food friendly wines.
These reasons alone make for a great evening of exploration into the wines of Grenache and the food it inspires. We are thrilled to invite you to the Quality Inn on September 14th to enjoy this bit of excellent “education”.
