Cabernet Franc is well known for its ability to produce high quality wines in different regions across the world, but here, in the Loire Valley, it reveals unique tart fruit flavours and refreshing acidity. 

We are proud to present Cabernet Franc from two most famous appellations: Chinon and Bourgueil. Chinon is often recognised as the region that produces the most charming reds of the Loire, and Bourgueil - some of the most structured wines in the region. 

By the way, did you know that Cabernet Franc is the parent grape for both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot? It´s time to meet the father!:)
