The Origin of Cabernet Sauvignon

Did you know that Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of a chance crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc during the 17th century? This happened in the Bordeaux region of France, and since then, Cabernet Sauvignon has spread to every major wine-growing country across the globe. It's revered for its hardiness and ability to produce excellent red wines.
