Most people are aware that Cabernet Franc is one of the 6 grapes allowed in red Bordeaux blends but the grape is made on it’s own in other French wine regions. In the Loire valley, red wines are made from mostly Cabernet Franc with the most notable wines coming from Bourgueil, Chinon, Saumur-Champigny and Anjou. Cab Franc is also grown in southwest France. Although this theme might be a bit tougher than the past couple months, most well stocked wine stores should have a few selections to choose from. And you could always buy online.
