I enjoyed a bottle of wine from Spain last night called Vina alarde and there is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% garnacha. I do not know these as grape varieties but perhaps they are? Your opinion would be appreciated. Many thanks, Bob Cork

There is no English equivalent for Tempranillo as it is a Spanish variety. Garnacha is the Spanish word for Grenache. If you are interested, you can look up both these varieties in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempranillo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grenache Cheers!

HI bob, I am glad you liked our wine, tempranillo is a variety of the Rioja grape, as you sure know the Rioja wine is the most appreciated over here.

Uva tempranillo

Uva tempranillo Tempranillo o Cencibel es una variedad de uva tinta cultivada extensamente para producir vinos tintos con cuerpo1 en España, de donde es originaria. Ocupa una superficie de cultivo de 31.046 hectáreas, lo que supone un 61% de la D.O. Calificada Rioja, con un aumento progresivo en los últimos años en detrimento de otras variedades. Se considera autóctona de Rioja.

English:

Tempranillo Red. Superb quality and very aromatic, the star of Spanish grapes. It is called Ull de Llebre in Catalonia, Cencibel in Castile-La Mancha and Madrid, and Tinto Fino and Tinto del Pais in Castile and Leon. It flourishes in Burgos, La Rioja, Alava, Cuenca and Ciudad Real. It is considered a main variety in the following DOs: Calatayud, Cigales, Conca de Barbera, Costers del Segre, La Mancha, Penedes, Ribera del Duero, Rioja, Somontano, Utiel-Requena, Valdepenas, and Vinos de Madrid.
