Grenache

Ubiquitous red grown all over France; Spain (Garnacha); Italy (Cannonau) and the New World. Pale in color but otherwise a hardy richly fruity colossus in blends and varietal wines alike.

Spain

One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
