National Cabernet Day, grape vines in Napa

I know that there are all sorts of made up holidays, but National Cabernet Day is one I can get behind.  One of the world’s most popular grapes, it’s a cross between cabernet franc and sauvignon blanc grapes.  While the Bordeaux region of France is home to some of the best cabernet grapes in the world, you’ll also find a nice selection much closer to home – in Napa.  Don’t rush out to buy a card for this holiday, just raise your glass in appreciation.
