NOTE: THIS EVENT WILL BEGIN AT 3:30 PM AS ADVERTISED.
Garnacha/Grenache is one of the world’s oldest and most widely planted grapes for winemaking. As the Kingdom of Aragon expanded across the Mediterranean in the 13th and 14th centuries, Garnacha was planted in its wake. In French Catalonia, it became known as Grenache.
Grenache is the only major grape variety with red, grey
and white variants, which allows it to produce highly diverse wines of exceptional character and concentration.
Hoke Harden will be your guide and sommelier. He is a Certified Specialist of Wine, attended the FWS Master Program for Vins de
Provence and the Maison de Rosé, is a US Ambassador for Pineau des Charentes, and a BNIC Certified Cognac Educator.
