Event Details

Date: 25 November, 2017 Location: Villány (several wineries) Type of event: informal tasting of at least 40 Cabernet Franc wines in 5 wineries Cabernet Franc is usually blended with the other two Bordeaux grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and Cabernet Franc is much less usual as a single varietal wines. If produced the style is varied: the Cabernet Franc wines in the Loire valley, France, for example are lighter bodied, different wines from the more full bodied ones of Villány. As Michael Broadbent (former director of Chistie’s auction house wine department) said when visiting the southern Hungarian wine region: Cabernet Franc has found its home in Villány. The tasting begins at 10 am and finishes at 6 pm. Buses will transfer guests between wineries. Tickets cost 18 900 HUF / person (60 euros). Tickets:
