Friend from Barossa corrects our pronunciation of ‘Tempranillo’ again

When Gerrand Deghard moved to Angaston in the Barossa Valley two months ago, he had never had a glass of wine in his life, brown creamy soda was his drink of choice. However, since taking up a job at an Angaston café, and drinking upwards of three glasses of wine per calendar month, Deghard fancies himself as a bit of an expert.

It’s actually pronounced Tempranillo

So much so, that he keeps commenting on our Facebook posts with what we assume is the correct pronunciation of the Spanish grape variety Tempranillo.

‘It’s actually pronounced Tempranillo’, Deghard writes in response to an article about home prices in the South East, offering no real phonetic insight.

A recent email from Deghard to Adelaide Mail’s editors offers this advice:

‘Sorry just a small correction on your recent article about Georgina Downer’s electoral chances in Mayo. You wrote that Downer enjoys a glass of “Tempranillo” over dinner, I should note (as a bit of a wine snob, myself) that Tempranillo is actually pronounced Tempranillo. Not Tempranillo, as you suggested. No biggy, just want to avoid you any embarrassment in future’.

We called Deghard to clarify the pronunciation of the disputed word but he pronounced it differently every time. We now think that it might be pronounced as “Temprorviozo” or maybe “Telephony”, we’re more confused than ever.

If you have any insight into how the fuck you pronounce this word let us know in the Facebook comments, or send a stamped, self-addressed envelope with your interpretation of the word to Alan Jones, GPO Box 4290, Sydney NSW, 2001.
