Eminence. Sourced from native Spain, Tempranillo adds panache to any cellar. It skillfully balances fresh berries with savory notes of pepper and smoke.

Tempranillo is the signature wine grape in its native home of Spain, where they have been making it into wine for over 2,000 years. In all great Spanish wine regions, from Rioja, Navarra, Ribera del Duero through to Toro, La Mancha and Penedès, it is the defining grape of the best red wines. The name Tempranillo is derived from the word temprano, which in Spanish means “early”, because it’s considered an early ripener among Spain’s red wine grapes. It was traditionally cultivated as a low bush vine dotting the Spanish landscape, but with modern viticultural practices, this is now changing. When Tempranillo is grown, with care, in the right spots, it produces extremely long-lived and deliciously fruity wines.
