Cabernet Sauvignon

Grapvines: Cabernet Sauvignon

Historic Outline
The plant has its origins from Bordeaux, France in the zones of Graves and del Medoc. The name, Cabernet Sauvignon, is taken from where the plant was first thought to be discovered. It is hypothisised that the plant has two origins, one in Vitis Carbonica di Plinio and the other in the neighboring town of Cabonet. Therefore the plant was named using the names of both of these towns giving us a name that all the world knows; Cabernet Sauvignon.

This grape is known throughout the world for its production of high quality wines and their longevity. It is commonly used along with Cabernet Franc and Merlot plants in the production of various wines from Bordeaux.
At the beginning of the 9th century the plant came accross Piedmonte and spread into Italy demonstrating a great capacity to adapt to the most desperate weather conditions. The plant has been able to maintain all its known characteristics whether it is grown in the soils of France or the diverse soils of Italy.
