Cariñena Fall 2019 Newsletter

Fall is an exciting time for D.O.P. Cariñena, not only in the region, but stateside too. This issue we’re sharing highlights from Garnacha Day; a recent beverage industry influencers’ trip to Cariñena; and a favorite regional recipe, Ternasco de Aragon. We’re also featuring some social media highlights and the latest coverage from our media friends…



A giveaway, grapes, and Garnacha galore: Celebrating #GarnachaDay 2019!

To celebrate one of our region’s top varietals on September 20th, we looked back at our Global Garnacha Road Tour, toasted with friends and followers in the industry, and topped it all off with a giveaway of tasty treats from the region. 
Some of the items included: sliced 100% Jamón Ibérico de Bellota by Cinco Jotas; José Andrés Foods Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tasting Kit; Vicens Dark Chocolate Almond Turrón with Sea Salt; and Dantza Whole Piquillo Peppers. 
Debbie Gioquindo CSW, WLS, Hudson Valley Wine Goddess, took home this delectable prize and we can’t wait to see how she enjoys them all. You can find some of our top #GarnachaDay2019 highlights here.
