Get Your Groove on with Garnacha: Online Wine Tasting

Upcoming Events

Get Your Groove on with Garnacha!

Thursday, Sept. 24  6:30 -7:30 p.m.

You Are Invited to an Online Wine Tasting with
“Dame Somms” Liz Barrett and Veronica Hastings!

Garnacha is one of Spain’s greatest gifts to wine drinkers. During this delicious educational tasting, you’ll sample three Spanish Garnachas  – a light, breezy white, an appealing, floral rosé and a robust red – and learn about the Catalan region of Spain where these wines grow, east of Madrid. And in case you’re wondering, yes, Garnacha is the same grape as France’s Grenache.

The Wines:

  1. Celler Xavier Clua Illusio White Terra Alta 2018
  2. Acustic Rosat, Monsant 2018
  3. Celler Xavier Clua Illusio Red Terra Alta 2016


Spanish wines almost always over-deliver on quality for value and each of these beauties clocks in at under $20 per bottle. The House of Glunz invites you to purchase this tempting trio at a special price of $49.90 (includes tax). Wines will be available for pick-up at the shop starting Sept. 17. Delivery is free within the 60610 and 60611 zip codes, and Glunz delivers for a modest fee anywhere in the city of Chicago and uses UPS overnight for suburban deliveries.  Please order your wines no later than Monday, Sept. 21.

Garnacha is one of the most versatile wines for food, so we invite you to sip and snack during the tasting! Consider these classic Spanish bites and you can also visit La Tienda for more inspiration (no Dames affiliation, but a great resource for Spanish foods and recipes).
