What do we love most about these Carnitas? One, they pair so well with our Tempranillo and two, this is a simple recipe that cooks for 8 hours on low in the slow cooker, which makes it the perfect weeknight meal.
When you walk in the door the aroma will reel you in to the kitchen. Open a bottle of our Tempranillo and sip while you shred the beef and prep your dinner. You will be sitting down to eat in about 10 minutes.

Our 2012 Tempranillo
This wine demonstrates a brilliant deep garnet color, base to the rim. Aromas of raspberries, strawberries and soft leather lead into a rich palate much the same. Subtle tannins and a pleasant balance of light vanilla to red cherries make this a pleasantly approachable wine.
Our award-winning Tempranillo pairs well with grilled meats, garlic rich Italian cuisine or a hearty beef stew. What’s our favorite pairing? Grilled Porterhouse steak smothered with Double Crème Brie with Truffles, from Trader Joe’s and a loaded baked potato.

Spain is the kingdom of Tempranillo! Thick skin gives this grape deep color and rich tannins. Tempranillo is the backbone of the blends of Rioja. With flavors of spice, leather, tobacco leaves, and sometimes strawberry, this variety is both austere and complex. No wonder it is finding its niche with the American public.
