100% Cabernet Franc

Our 2013 Folly is our first release of this estate grown grape as a single varietal. The Father of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc is typically a blending grape in Bordeaux, but it tastes amazing on its own! With a distinctive peppery, green, and forest flavor, moderate acidity, and medium body, you’ll want to pair this wine with grilled steak, portobello mushrooms, eggplant, lentils – and REAL herbs, like rosemary, oregano, or thyme. We love this wine, and we hope you do, too!

On the Label:
Theresa and Tim Calabretta of Atascadero, CA found the perfect Folly (a costly garden ruin that serves no purpose but is enjoyable to look at) in New Glarus, Wisconsin.
