Today’s podcast is all about Cab Franc Baby! If you are listening to this podcast, you know that Cab Franc is my passion. I created Cab Franc Day back in 2015. That first year, I hosted a twitter chat and could not believe my eyes when I saw it trending on Twitter. Just behind cookie day. It’s tough to beat a cookie!
Since then my holiday has made it international. It is celebrated across the globe and I have no idea how it happened, but sometimes you don’t need to know the why, you just need to be happy with it! Several regions have since named Cab Franc their flagship grape, including Villany Hungary (you can listen to several podcasts and read my blogs about my trip there) and the Hudson Valley, which is the focus of this podcast.
The Hudson Valley Cabernet Franc Coalition is a group of Hudson Valley winery owners, grape growers, winemakers, and wine industry supporters committed to establishing a Cabernet Franc brand identity for the Hudson River Region. They had a barrel tasting event at the end of May, and i was more than happy to take the drive to meet the people behind the wineries that came together over their love of Cabernet Franc.
