Camping tip: Bring Garnacha
Bodegas Ateca Atteca Old Vines Garnacha
I think Garnacha or Grenache as it’s known in France is really under rated and all too frequently overlooked. A varietal more known for use in the amazing blends of Frances southern Rhone or Spains Priorat region. Garnacha on its own can be ripe, juicy and spicy. The Atteca Old Vines is your best bet if you are planning an early spring camping trip. The flavors of ripe black cherry, cinnamon and chocolate are an amazing pair for a day of adventure and outdoors. One of my favorite seasonal moments is when the sun is warming up but the air from winter is still lingering a bit. After months indoors the heat from the sun is blissful and totally re-energizing. What makes this experience even better you may ask?….Garnacha!
