Cabernet

There are many different kinds of Cabernet grape varietals grown worldwide and used for commercial production of wine. The most recognized is Cabernet Sauvignon, but there are actually seven total varietals. After Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc is the most planted. It is grown in France, Canada, the United States, Italy, and Hungary. A few New World regions also grow Cabernet Franc, including Australia and New Zealand.

The five other Cabernet varietals are Cabernet Gros, Cabernet Dorsa, Cabernet blanc, Cabernet Mitos, and Cabernet Gernischt. Two of those were created in Germany: Cabernet Dorsa (in 1971, after Dornfelder was blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for the first time) and Cabernet Mitos (Blaufränkisch combined with Cabernet Sauvignon, beginning in 1970).


Quick Facts

  • Cabernet Sauvignon evolved as a hybrid of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc grapes
  • Sales of Cabernet Sauvignon’s 2013 vintage at the Premiere Napa Valley auction in 2015 led to the event’s record $6 million in sales
  • A blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon is quite common and has led to some highly rated wines
