About the wine grape variety Tempranillo….it is often referred to as the “Cabernet” of Spain due to its widespread planting and its noble status as the backbone of Spanish reds. It is actually the 4th most planted wine grape in the world. However, here in California we are just getting to know it. Less than 1000 acres of Tempranillo are planted in California. Tempranillo is fondly known by many names such as Ull de Llebre “Eye of the Hare”, Cencibel, Valdepenas and Tinta del Pais. Taste Tempranillo and you will taste the heart and soul of Spain! #LodiTourOfTempranillo #InternationalTempranilloDay Participating Wineries: *Bokisch Vineyards *Dancing Coyote *Estate Crush *Fields Family Wines *Heritage Oak *McCay Cellars *McConnell Estates Winery *St. Amant Winery *Riaza Wines
