Cabernet is the king of grapes, and our Cabernet Festival will showcase its regal power.

The Festival will begin in the grape’s ancestral homeland, which arguably yields its greatest expression: Bordeaux. The Festival will also showcase the blue-blood royalties of Napa Valley, the earthy powers of Sonoma and the celestial treasures of Italy’s Super Tuscans. And our Festival wouldn’t be complete without noteworthy luminaries from Washington State, Margaret River, Chile and Argentina.

From France to California and around the world, our Cabernet Festival offers you the unparalleled opportunity to taste, compare and intimately explore the 50 greatest Cabernets on the earth. You might think of it as a special holiday gift to yourself, a chance to the savor the riches of the season. Swing by whenever you’d like from Noon to 4 pm. Taste 10 wines. Taste all 50! Taste all 50 twice! Whatever you do, don’t miss your chance to taste the wines of our spectacular Cabernet Festival.
