There's the Carignan Renaissance, ZAP, PS I Love You, and Grenache Symposium.
Aside from the Rhone Rangers, I cannot find a group dedicated to the Mourvedre grape and its wines.
Anyone know of one?
Thanks to Emilio Castelli w/ coming up w/ that name. Far above my pay grade for creativity.
I emailed Mr Castelli a while back to address the fact that he pulled out his Mourvedre vines to plant some other variety (perhaps Nebbiolo, or Sangiovese - hopefully not Pinot Noir). He stated that he was experiencing difficulty ripening the fruit. He still had a couple of 2006 Mourvedre bottles, but wouldn't sell them to me.
