About us

Grenache : one big family

Grenaches of the world

 

In 2013, the Interprofessional Council of Roussillon Wines organised the first competition for this high-quality grape variety. With its roots in Roussillon, Grenaches du Monde has since became itinerant, each year hosted by regions producing wines based on the Grenache grape variety. Over the years, the event has become the unmissable annual meeting for professionals in the wine industry worldwide.

Each year, rising numbers of wine producers have been participating in this event. More than 800 samples from France, Spain, Italy, South Africa, Australia, Canada, the Republic of Macedonia, Lebanon and Greece amongst other countries are expected to be entered in the next event.

Grenache wines taking centre stage - this is an initiative everyone has been waiting for! It is a celebration of diversity, the cornerstone of southern vineyards that lends itself to many different interpretations ... Each vineyard presents its Grenache as a heritage to interpret.
