International Tempranillo Day – Second Thursday in November
The Tempranillo Advocates Producers and Amigos Society (TAPAS) created this day in 2011. Their goal was to simply celebrate the Tempranillo grape. The day also provides an opportunity for people to discover Tempranillo wine for the first time ever. Since restaurants and bottle shops are too busy over the weekend, TAPAS chose Thursday so that these businesses would have time to celebrate the day.
