Carignan Wine: How This Humble Red Is Making a Comeback

McKenzie Hagan |

As a red wine lover,  there’s one red wine you might not know much about — Carignan.

Pronounced care-een-yawn, Carignan is a black-skinned wine grape variety. It’s thought to be native to the northeastern region of Spain that spans Aragon and Catalonia.

Although it’s mostly grown in Southern France — especially the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region — this red wine grape is common along the Mediterranean coast, particularly on the island of Sardinia. Carignan grapesprefer warm climates and are also cultivated around the world from Algeria and Australia to Chile and California.

Carignan goes by a variety of names depending on where it’s from or where you’re drinking it. Some of the names you’ll likely come across include:

  • Carignano (Italy)
  • Cariñena, Mazuelo, or Samsó (Spain)
  • Carignane (United States; notice the extra “e”)
