Grenache is not only my favorite variety to work with, but also my favorite to drink. Whether it's a nice crisp Grenache Blanc, an intriguing Grenache Rose, an alluring 100% Grenache, or a sexy Grenache-based blend, I cannot get enough . . .

What will you be opening to help celebrate it?!?!?

Cheers!

Love Grenache, or at least a nice GSM blend!

Gonna have to go through the cellar I guess. I may have let myself run out. Does Peter make one? I seem to think I have one that's his.

He does. The 09' is included in his fall shipment and I'm really looking forward to it.

Well Larry I still have a bottle of your white grenache I believe, sadly the 2 bottles of rose grenache I have gotten I was not very impressed with. I just do not seem to have very good luck with your wines, but I love your presence on the boards.

I remember last year that wine.woot did a single varietal woot-off for these type of days. What happened to those?

The Troubles? Or maybe they didnt get the winery participation. I remember that woot off, it was my first labrat, and I had a test that next day, so I couldnt post my review, and had to email it to Cesare

There are so many 'days' out there that it's difficult to have woot offs for each of them would be my guess.

That said, Grenache is one versatile grape that really does lend itself to a future woot off. And we don't need no stinking proclamation about an 'official' day to do it, do we?!?!

Oh, and I've been asked to propose an International Viognier Day, so perhaps Neil can get working on that (-:

Awesome wine for the Macks, who also adore the variety. Would love to know how it was . . .

Cheers!

Sorry to hear that you didn't have the greatest luck with my wines the first time around . . . Don't give up, though - I make about a dozen different wines and we're bound to find something you'll dig . . .

Cheers!

I'm game to try it, it could have also just been a bad batch/bottle. We shall see, put something on woot, and I will see if I will bite.
