Written by Yves Leccia, published in 

In a few days, on Friday 16 September, the #GrenacheDay will take place, a great opportunity to taste our IGP Île de beauté YL red wine, made from 80% of the grape variety. We take this opportunity to tell you everything you need to know about this special day!

What is #GrenacheDay?

The #GrenacheDay is the day dedicated to the Mediterranean grape variety on all social media. Everyone can easily participate; just speak up by posting content and don't forget to use the hashtag #GrenacheDay. In short: taste a Grenache and share! 

How to participate in #GrenacheDay?

Beforehand: you can of course announce the event on your social media to raise awareness and encourage your community to taste a Grenache on Friday 16 September! When the day comes, don't hesitate to post actively and take part in the discussion by interacting with all the people who use the hashtag #GrenacheDay on their own social networks. If you taste our red YL, share your tasting experience with the domain's own hashtags: #YL #YLRouge #YvesLeccia, etc. 

What do you need to know about Grenache?

Grenache noir is the Mediterranean grape variety par excellence! Of Spanish origin, it was imported into France, particularly in the South, in the Middle Ages and today represents 100,000 hectares of French vineyards. A very widespread variety, it is present throughout the world: in Italy, Spain, but also in California, in the various vineyards of South America, in Australia and in South Africa. Grenache thrives on dry, stony soils: it is in these conditions that it gives a very sweet juice. Here in Corsica, we like to call it "aligante" or "elegante" because it brings roundness and elegance to our wines. Yves uses it for the YL red wine, blended with nielluciu, the grenache offers a very greedy wine, full of voluptuousness. A word of advice? Enjoy this wine with a nice rib of beef!
