Cab Franc is one of the important black grape species grown in all parts of the world. It is one of the three most important grape variety used in wine manufacturing.

In addition to being used in blends, it is made into ice wine.
Cabernet Franc is usually lighter than Cabernet Sauvignon. It makes a bright pale red wine that contributes finesse and lends a spicy perfume that blends with more robust grapes. Cabernet Franc is believed to have been founded in the Libournais region of southwest France sometime in the 17th century. The records of Cabernet Franc in Bordeaux dates back to the end of the 18th century. However, it was planted in the Loire earlier to this period.
