GREENVILLE SC | The Glories of Grenache

Single Variety Wine Dinner: Grenache Around the World

Call it Grenache, Garnacha, Cannonau or Alicante, under any name it’s an amazingly versatile and flat-out delicious grape variety with something to add to every meal. Grenache is the only mainstream grape with red and white versions: the wine itself can be red, white, or rosé. Combine this versatility with a deep connectivity to sense of place (to rival Pinot Noir, honestly) and we’ve got a world-class grape that’s in need of more places at more tables.

For the first time ever at Foxcroft, join us for a dinner devoted to a single grape in multiple shades (red and white) from Australia, France, Spain, Italy and the USA. Foxcroft Wine Operations Director Shawn Paul will guide us through the many expressions of Grenache in 8 wines and 4 custom-crafted courses by the Foxcroft culinary team.
