Grenache - Garnacha - Cannonau

Grenache (Garnacha) is a red-wine grape grown extensively in France, Spain, Australia and the United States.

It is particularly versatile both in the vineyard and the winery, which may explain why it is one of the most widely distributed grapes in the world. Grenache is the French (and most internationally recognized) name for the grape, but it has a number of synonyms.

In Spain, where it is one of the country's flagship varieties, it is known as Garnacha.

In Sardignia it is known as Cannonau, there the wines have a distinctly leather and strawberry-like note with a juicy, full-bodied style and medium tannins.
