Though originally from the South-West of France, the Tannat is often overshadowed by the popular Bordeaux grape, although it has found some of the limelight since Uruguay's adoption. Tannat wines are often blended to make them more “sip-easy,” as they are prone to be heady and super-tannic. However, Lopez's research indicates that a good producer like Laumann, “one of the Tannat pioneers in California,” can make a pure Tannat wine that appears soft and silky. The event will feature Tannat wines from Uruguay, France, and local Californian vintages.
