The Singing Winemaker
A black grape variety that is widely grown to create full-bodied red wines. A native to Spain, toward the end of the twentieth century, Tempranillo enjoyed a renaissance throughout the entire world as a fine wine.
Livermore Valley vintners craft Tempranillo into wines with delightful layers of flavor. Bright cherries, raspberry and strawberry are complemented by earthy, leathery notes.
Try Tempranillo with dill-poached salmon, pork tenderloin with cilantro pesto or steamed mussels.
