About the event
Cabernet Franc is a bit of a misunderstood grape variety, and I love misunderstood things! It has parented some of the most famous and widely planted varieties in the world (Cab Sauv, Merlot). Yet in many ways, it remains a bit of a dark horse.
It can make wines of finesse, strength, complexity, and unorthodox flavors. It hails from the Loire Valley of France but has found distinct versions of itself in South Africa, Washington, Bordeaux, South America, and more.
Let's learn what makes it special, and taste some of the many facets of this wonderful grape!
