Wine Grapes Presale Reservation: Cabernet Franc

Wine grape preorders are accepted from now through August 3, 2018.

 

Cabernet Franc is one of the major black grape varieties worldwide. It is principally grown for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the Bordeaux style, but can also be vinified alone.

 

Cabernet Franc is lighter than Cabernet Sauvignon, making a bright pale red wine that contributes finesse and lends a peppery perfume to blends with more robust grapes. Depending on the growing region and style of wine, additional aromas can include tobacco, raspberry, bell pepper, cassis, and violets.

 

Broadway Brew Supply obtains Cabernet Franc grapes from Palisade, CO.

 

Broadway Brew Supply sources Cabernet Franc and other classic varieties sometime between mid-September and mid-October depending on growing conditions and numerous other factors.

 

If you are not familiar with making wine from grapes, don’t worry!  We’ll help you through the process by providing a step-by-step checklist when you pick up your grapes.  For more detailed information, check out these great wine making books to add to your library.

 

In general, 50 lbs of wine grapes will make approximately 3 gallons of finished wine, and 100 lbs will make approximately 6 gallons of finished wine.
