Carignan

The Carignan is a red variety, which due to the order APA / 2351/2002 promulgated by the “Government of Spain” on September 11, 2002, prohibited, in its article 2.2 the use of the word Carignan for wines made from this same variety, for the reason that there is a city and a Denomination of Origin with the name “Cariñena” and authorizes the labeling in Catalonia as “Mazuela” or “Samsó”. This law, however, falls at the end of November 2018 and is allowed to be labeled with his real name.

Pere el Cerimoniós in his Chronicle already recorded this variety at the end of the 14th century with the name of “caranyena”; and that some winegrowers still use this denomination in the Terra Alta and the Priorat wine regions. All over Catalonia we find other denominations for the same variety, for example “caranyana” in the Alt Empordà. Baix Empordà and Llagostera; “crinyana” and in North Catalonia, “agranyena” or “Granyena”.

This variety is currently found throughout Catalonia, especially in the Priorat, Empordà and Terra Alta, apart from the Valencian Country, in the south of France, Rioja, Italy, California and Morocco. Interestingly, it is very difficult to find them in the DO Cariñena, mostly all of Grenache.

Despite being a red variety, we can find red and white mutations, located mainly in the Empordà area, but it was not regulated or registered until the end of 2018, when the White Carignan is recognized.
