November 13 is International #Tempranillo Day

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Raise your glass! Today is the fourth annual International Tempranillo Day and the wonderful flavors and impressive versatility of the Tempranillo grape aren’t the only reasons to celebrate this year. A study conducted at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid has put the spotlight on the grape’s healthy attributes, which include higher quantities of antioxidants and dietary fiber compared to white varieties, factors which reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol. Tempranillo is a true toast to your health!
The Freixenet Group is especially excited to celebrate this year, with a newly released Tempranillo wine by Spanish winemaker Gloria Collell, Mia Red 2012 ($10 SRP), as well as the newest vintages of Tempranillos from Spain’s most well-known regions. Mia Red 2012, an unoaked Tempranillo, showcases ripe and juicy fruit flavors of plum and berry. The newest vintage from the Ferrer family’s prestigious Heredad Collection, Valdubon Cosecha 2012 ($15 SRP) provides spicy quality and uses grapes from the region of Ribera del Duero. Another newly released vintage from the Heredad Collection, VAZA Crianza 2011 ($15 SRP) from the celebrated region of Rioja, is an aromatic wine with hints of vanilla.
Established in 2011 by TAPAS (Tempranillo Advocates Producers and Amigos Society), International Tempranillo Day encourages the growing appreciation for this adaptable grape that has piqued the interest of winemakers and wine drinkers alike. I'll be celebrating with all three of these delectable wines today!
