After a breathtaking suspense and four successful decentralised editions, the last stage of
the Grenaches du Monde 2021 took place on Tuesday in Ascoli Piceno, in the Italian
Marches. This tasting concluded this hedonistic marathon that traversed the Grenache
vineyards of Cebreros (Spain), Châteauneuf du Pape and Perpignan (France), and Ascoli
Piceno (Italy). The results are online on grenachesdumonde.com!
This decentralisation of the competition is an audacious but also ingenious challenge which,
while respecting the sanitary protocoles of social distancing, was able to symbolically bring
together four emblematic terroirs of the Grenache grape. The more than 300 award-winning wines illustrate the upmarket nature of the wines presented and make up a palette of territories that is an invitation to travel through these terroirs that have Grenache in common.
Grenaches du Monde is an annual competition open to all wines made predominantly from Grenache grapes, without restriction of colour, origin, or nationality. This travelling event has a clear international vocation, and the ambition to discover the singularities and diversity inherent in the grape variety.
