Found in the Gran Chaco region of Argentina, Quebracho Rojo (Schinopsis quebracho-colorado) is a dense hardwood. The legendary Argentine barbecue uses it for fuel. However, it is also an important tannin for the leather industry as the heartwood contains between 20-30% tannin. Recently quebracho has been listed by winemaking suppliers as it is used to resist oxidation of red wines as well as impart flavor. Quebracho Rojo extract is suitable for dyeing cellulose fibers, and yields a lovely pinkish peach to brown rose color.
