International Cabernet Day is dedicated to the finest and most popular type of wine in the world. There are two types recognized as the most popular in the world: Cabernet Franc is made from a unique Bordeaux grape, and Cabernet Sauvignon is a variant from a hybrid variety of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc.
