TAPAS: America's Tempranillo Producers' Grand Tasting April 26

Spanish varietals grown in California rarely get their due, but April 26 is your chance to redress this imbalance and discover or pay homage to producers from the U.S. who grow climate appropriate wine grapes and make stellar wines (including Albarino, Grenache and Tempranillo).

The Tempranillo Advocates Producers and Amigos Society holds its grand tasting April 26 at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio (with fabulous Bay views). Tickets are now on sale - $45-75 - depending on the number of events selected. Don't miss the Tempranillo Shoot Out comparing top Spanish and American tempranillos. 

(Volunteers are still needed, so you could also attend for free if you are willing to participate in this way.)

TAPAS producers who make organically grown wines include:

• Bokisch (Albarino, Graciano, Grenache)
• Castoro Cellars (Grenache, Tempranillo)
• Martian Ranch & Vineyards (Grenache, Tempranillo)
• Upper Five Vineyards (Tempranillo)
• Verdad (Albarino, Grenache Rosé, Tempranillo)
