When it comes to summer, it’s safe to say that I get pretty excited about everything that comes with it. Great weather, backyard parties, vacations, hanging by the water, cooking and eating outside—I know I can’t be alone. While I’ve always been this way, I have to note something interesting I noticed about how the season is enjoyed after making my move to Los Angeles oh so many years ago: the locale specifics.
If you live in the United States, there’s a chance you’ve never heard of an amazing Spanish red wine varietal called Tempranillo. But just because it’s not on your radar doesn’t mean it isn’t noteworthy. Believe it or not, Tempranillo is actually one of the top 5 most popular grapes grown in the world and the MOST popular in Spain.
