„Cabernet Franc has found its natural home in Villány”
Michael Broadbent 2000, Decanter magazin
Although it is an essential basic pillar of a bordeaux blend still against sauvignon and merlot it could never achieve international success as an independent variety wine. Thanks to the heterogeneous ripening of the fruit we always find unripen berries on the bunches but it can be harvested 2 weeks earlier as sauvignon. Furthermore the ripe berries are less disposed to unripen aromas so it ripes even in the cooler regions too. If the soil and the climate are ideal then it is capable of extraordinary quality.
Since 2014 it is an independent brand in Villány which has an own quality category in the regional origin protection system. On the 3rd weekend of each November a professional conference brings it nearer to the greater audience.
In November we celebrate the variety with a vertical tasting in Mandula Restaurant.
