If ever a wine grape deserved a "day" it is Carmenere, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of its rebirth today, having been discovered in Carmen's vineyards in Chile on Monday 24 November, 1994.
The U.S. branch of Wines of Chile has designated 24 November #CarmenereDay, encouraging chats via social media about the variety, with prizes of Coravin and Riedel glasses among the incentives.
