About International Cabernet Sauvignon Day
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most popular red wine grape varieties. Though originally from Bordeaux in France, it is grown in every major wine-producing region in the world.
Cabernet Sauvignon is famed for its deep berry flavours, smooth tannins and hints of spice and cedar. The grape's thick skin and resistance to disease has seen it spread from Europe to the new world with wines of consistently high quality coming from Australia, South Africa, Chile and California. It is a versatile wine that brings a new dimension to meals but can also be enjoyed with cheese or even dark chocolate.
