Spain’s most famous red grape – Tempranillo – is a bit of a chameleon, taking on the unique character of the vineyards where it is grown and the winemaking techniques used to bring it to bottle. 

Importer Howard Friedman will show you all the different faces Tempranillo can present, from juicy, unoaked, red fruited fun to plush, oaky, Ribera del Duero to majestic Rioja. And, he’ll also share stories and pictures of each winemaker and region featured, all from his justcompleted trip to Spain!
