Celebrate International Tempranillo Day!
September 1st, 2011
September 1st, 2011 is the first INTERNATIONAL TEMPRANILLO DAY,
a celebration of the tempranillo grape.
Join us in the celebration.
Every guest that books a tour and tasting on
September 1st will be able to enjoy a glass of Jarvis 2009 Tempranillo
along with their scheduled tasting that day.
Tempranillo is the sixth most widely planted grape in the world. Jarvis Tempranillo wine is in honor of Dimitri Tchelistcheff, our long time mentor and valued contributor to our winemaking. He has a special feeling for Tempranillo and thought it would do well here. He suggest planting just an acre to compliment our other wines.
It's varietal name means "early" from the Spanish word "temprano" a reference to the fact that it ripens several weeks earlier than most other red grapes. It is our first red varietal to harvest each year, and it tells us when it is time to net all of our vineyards against the birds! Ruby red in color this wine has aromas and flavors of berries and plum. This wine is best enjoyed from its youth to six years of age.
Reserve your tour and tasting today by calling 800-255-5280 and join Jarvis and TAPAS (Tempranillo Advocates, Producers and Amigos Society) in celebrating the first International Tempranillo Day on September 1st.
