Cabernet Franc is all too often overlooked and used as a background extra in blends whilst the younger Cabernet Sauvignon is the star. Well, it's time we put this brighter, tad more traditional variety back into the spotlight! 

Join us for our 45 minute Cabernet Franc Masterclass, where you'll sip four outstanding Cabernet Franc wines, hosted by our fabulous wine gurus. No complicated lingo or boring presentations - just a laid back tasting with great wines including: 

Domaine Raymond Morin Saumur - Champigny, 2018, Loire Valley, France - Light in body, but no less robust in flavour, this is a wine that will surprise you. Very much a Doris Day kinda vino!

Domaine Pichard & Jourdan Les 3 Quartiers, 2014, Chinon, Loire Valley, France - perfumed and with a pure fruitiness, Pichard & Jourdan's half-century old vines still have a lot of life left in them! Think Liberace in a bottle.  

Rainbow's End Cabernet Franc, 2017, Stellenbosch, South Africa - Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high on the Jonkershoek Mountain, there is a family-run vineyard growing some bloody marvellous grapes. This wine has to be the Judy Garland of the bunch! 

Domaine Pichard & Jourdan l"Arcestrale, 2010, Chinon, Loire Valley, France - Pichard & Jourdan again - this time we'll be sampling some of their earlier work. Elegant and highly sophisticated, it's Grace Kelly through and through. 

To register for this event, grab a deposit ticket for £10. We'll give you the £10 back on the day of the event as a voucher for you to spend on any Humble Grape wine bar or shop (helping to further your wine appreciation, of course!) 

 Book quickly to avoid disappointment. Only 20 seats per night!

    We wanted to ask some questions after the presentation, but the presenter had already left without announcing it. Otherwise the presentation was very informative and interactive. Enjoyed it!

    Very nice, clean, large branch of Humble Grape . Good wine and good food. It's nice to go in a small group and share food together . The wine class was good fun, and enjoyed learning new things about Cabernet Franc.
