Savvy match: Lamb is a versatile meat whose character is influenced as much by its cut as preparation, and this hearty, oven-roasted dish is a dynamic wine pairing with Grenache. Succulent and tender, lamb favors the resinous thyme, rosemary, and oregano of the herbs de Provence echoed in Grenache’s natural aromas. Wine lovers should note that grazing sheep in the vineyard has become part of regenerative farming practices to improve soil health and grape quality. That’s taking wine pairing seriously!
Grenache may be as versatile and unheralded as lamb for some wine drinkers. Native to the warm climate of the Southern Rhone, Grenache is a prominent player in those wines and in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Garnacha in Spain and Cannonau in Sardinia, the western United States, has also become a place to find fantastic Grenache wines.
For those hesitant about lamb and Grenache, this easy preparation is the ideal place to start your adventure with both.
