Weekly wine defined: Bonarda

July 29th, 2013 by brynn grimley

Mary writes:

Originally a widely planted French varietal, Bonarda now is hard to find except in the Jura and Savoie regions.
Bonarda is the second-most widely planted grape in Argentina, with more that 46,000 acres planted mostly in the Mendoza wine region. Rarely will you find a bottle of 100 percent Bonarda, as it is more of a blending wine, usually with Malbec and/or Cabernet Sauvignon.
You can also find it planted in California where it goes by the name of Charbono.
