While most of us regard Grenache as having its figurative and literal roots in France, not everyone realizes that Garnacha can be found scattered across Spain as well, and it turns out that Spanish Garnachas are delicious. This Saturday, September 30, Kevin brings out some old staff favorites, though all new vintages, of Garnachas and their cousins from various locales around Spain. The tasting is $10, reservations are a must, and they can only be made in person or by phone, at 326-9363. Web and email reservations won’t hold you a seat at this one. The tasting is at 2:00 pm, and you’re welcome and encouraged to join us.
