International Tempranillo Day – 2022
November 10 All day
Growing Tempranillo in Texas
The second Thursday in November is International Tempranillo Day each year. So, let’s celebrate learning about a grape that has taken Texas by storm. Once thought to be best red grape for production in Texas, Tempranillo now has more years of data for us to consider.
Let’s just says that Tempranillo in Texas is temperamental. Maybe not as much of a prima donna as Viognier, but still requires careful attention. They both still make wonderful wine, they just both require more work and attention in the vineyard.
Wine Folly has some good research information if you are interested in learning more about Tempranillo grapes or the wine that is made with Tempranillo grapes. Wikipedia has some interesting facts about Tempranillo as well.
Our 2018 Tempranillo is wonderful, but our wine club members are also enjoying the opportunity to purchase our 2020 Reserve Tempranillo with its bold flavors of plum, vanilla, leather, and silky tannins. Our reserve red wines are oaked an extra year to bring you a well aged wine that is ready to drink now or for cellaring.
Consider the Best Selection of Texas Estate Wine
