International Tempranillo Day

9 November heralds International Tempranillo Day. Join Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia in celebrating this revered drop. 

Tempranillo, a black grape native to Spain, derives its name from the Spanish word 'temprano,' signifying early ripening, as these grapes mature earlier than most in the country. Known for its versatility, Tempranillo complements a variety of dishes, such as grilled meat, tacos, burritos, and tomato-based cuisine. Wines crafted from Tempranillo grapes boast delightful aromas and flavours of cherry, plum, and dried fig.
