    Winemaker Notes

    Intense cherry red color in the glass. Bursting with fresh, ripe fruit aromas. Expressive, clean and ripe on the palate. A truly lovely wine.

    Image of winery
    Bodegas Anadas was founded in the very heart of the D.O. Carinena, an historic area that in again emerging onto the world stage. The project of this winery can be described as highly exclusive, innovative and committed.

    The bodega is a result of careful and meticulous planning. The winery begins from an innovative project where each of its essential elements has been verified. From the choice of de vineyard, exclusively based on the quality of the fruit, to the state of the art equipment and a superb infrastructure for a perfect vinification, control and ageing, the whole process has been designed fusing the respect of vineyard., the grape and therefore resulting in a modern and ground-breaking wine.

    Care, the Bodegas Anadas brand, is the ancient name used by the Romans to refer to the town of Carinena, which then became Caraellana, "the dear plain". This etymology refers to our roots and our love for the land. In the English-speaking world, it also refers to the care we take and the respect we show in making all our wines. With our roots in tradition, we are now oriented towards a new kind of consumer. So, our brand image takes the form of faces, the original work of the artist Enrique Torrijos. An artistic image inspired in primitive art that brings together various ideas and a universally identifiable term, CARE, blend concepts in unique, innovative wines.

    Carinena

    View all wine

    This northeastern Spanish town is believed to be the origin of the grape with the same name. However, Carinena (in French, known as Carignan) has all but been abandoned in favor of Garnacha, which is better suited for its arid climate. The region of Carinena also produces fine examples of whites based on Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Parellada and others.

    Grenache

    View all wine

    Enjoying great glory across a variety of appellations, Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. The grape typically produces full-bodied reds interestingly light in both color and tannins. While it can make a charmingly complex single varietal wine, it also lends well to blending. Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha) where it remains important, particularly in Priorat where winemakers enjoy great liberties in blending Grenache with other varieties. Today it might be most well associated with the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its Villages. The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic Grenache (there called Cannonau) whereas in California, Washington and Australia, Grenache has achieved popularity both flying solo and in blends.

    In the Glass

    In sufficiently warm conditions, Grenache produces smooth and generous wines that are loaded with strawberry, cherry blackberry, purple plum and in the richest examples, even cocoa, black tea or licorice.

    Perfect Pairings

    Despite its bold flavors, Grenache has very mild-mannered tannins, which makes it eminently quaffable on its own, yet easy to match with food. Because of its friendly nature, Grenache is the ultimate barbecue red, pairing happily with lamb chops, pork loin or tri-tip. Unlike most other full-bodied reds, Grenache’s low tannin level ensures that it will not easily be fazed by a bit of spice.

    Sommelier Secret

    Sardinia is often revered for its association with a long and healthy life. Residents of the Italian island often live well into their 90s and beyond, crediting this to their antioxidant-rich red wines, like Cannonau, along with their healthy Mediterranean diet.
