Teddington Wine Society - focus on Cabernet Sauvignon @ Landmark Arts Centre

Grown everywhere, capable of sublime elegance and complexity, but generally distinctive characteristics – blackcurrant, tomato leaf, cedarwood and of course tannin. Why has this grape variety been so successful?

We will explore how a crossing of two Bordeaux varieties (Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc) has in just a couple of centuries become a flagship of regions as diverse as Coonawarra in South Australia, Maipo in Chile, California’s Napa Valley, Mendoza in Argentina, Stellenbosch in South Africa, Tuscany, the Languedoc and of course Bordeaux itself.

We look forward to seeing you.
