THE RHONE RANGERS JOIN FORCES TO SALUTE GRENACHE
National Organization Plans International Grenache Day Celebrations on September 20, 2013
ALBION CA––The Rhone Rangers organization is pleased to announce plans for International Grenache Day, September 20th, 2013 that include regional events in Paso Robles and Healdsburg, CA. “Grenache, in all its forms, is one of the most exciting grapes in America. New plantings of Grenache Noir have topped 1200 acres in California alone in the last decade, and Grenache Blanc is the fastest-growing white Rhone variety in America,” said David Gates, Rhone Rangers Board President. “We enthusiastically join our friends and colleagues at the Grenache Symposium in this growing movement of global recognition and appreciation for Grenache.”
Rhone Rangers events will feature Grenache, Grenache Blanc, Grenache rosés and Grenache-based blends. The schedule includes regional events in Paso Robles and Healdsburg; additional events are planned at member wineries. International Grenache Day, established in 2010 by founders of the first annual Grenache Symposium, honors the “unsung hero of the wine world”. Nicole Sierra-Rolet, co-founder of the International Grenache Association and proprietor of Rhone wine producer Chene Bleu in Crestet, France, adds “It's rewarding to see in just a few very short years how the Rhone Rangers, one of the world’s leading Rhone-inspired wine organizations, has embraced International Grenache Day. ”
